I did the whole thing last night. Updated the entire The 2020 Event |The Sideshows| page. Had it done by 3 am. When I went to press the Update button, I saw that WordPress was autosaving, so I decided to go to bed so it could autosave in peace. When I finally woke up, it was still autosaving. I refreshed the page, all my changes were gone. The autosave wouldn’t load. All my work is gone. I have to do it all again. I wrote up a whole long-ass instance of The Note last night, too, but in the spirit of |The Sideshows| I decided I’ll do this again as well.

So what’s up with me over these last couple days, huh? Am I acting strangely? I don’t know. Perhaps. That doesn’t matter though, this operation here is about the books, not about me. I still haven’t opened my copy of The Monksville Chronicles. Do you know I don’t own a copy of my book Flowers? Well I don’t. All my copies of my First Spiral books are out of date too. Anyhow, I’m anxious about sharing The Monksville Chronicles. I don’t know why. Its probably for no reason, and that only makes me all the more anxious. The whole |The Sideshows| thing is only making the situation more annoying. Updating the The 2020 Event |The Sideshows| page on my website is a very egregious process and there’s no way I can do all 84 sections of it. It’s too laggy, it’ll take literally hours, and there’s a fat chance that when I’m done I wont even be able to save it. So fuck it. I’m going to do the front matter, back matter, and Boardtrip sections and that’s it. Calling it done after that. If that’s not good enough for you, I’m not sorry. I need to move forever forward already ‘man, I have books to make. After |The Sideshows| is done I’ll handle the The Monksville Chronicles posts. Today is Saturday. I might still be able to get TMC going on Monday. Will possibly forego the normal announcement post because it’s not a new book. Not sure yet.

Things are not normal at The Hillside Commons right now. I’m spending all my time doing backend work. I’m sitting on a book that’s squirming to be shared and I have a million things on the backburner and they’re all back there because of the website update and the backend work that goes along with it. I am sorry for the lack of relative normalcy. It’s in my control but it’s very difficult to control. Difficult to untangle. It will be back to normal soon, I think.

If you’re there, hypothetical reader, thank you for being there. From this day on, we move forever forward~
