It's done been too long. Four frelling months. And it's not like I've had nothing to write; I simply allowed other things in my life to overwhelm my maintenance of this site.

Not that I'm complaining, mind you: a lot has happened but most of it has been good. Since the last site update at the end of October, I've written 70,000 words of a new novel, had a great holiday break with half a dozen of my closest friends, and found a charming and beautiful new girlfriend I just can't get enough of. On the downside I could have done without the poison sumac, throat infection and tendonitis in my hand, but you have to take the good with the bad.

BUT all of that's no excuse for letting the site go fallow for all this time --- especially since I had two or three articles sitting in a 90% completion state just waiting to be posted. SO here's what I'm going to do:

  • Get The Site Current The biggest reason for the site backlog was that the articles page was messed up. Stupid, but true --- I had gotten in the habit of posting articles directly to the front page rather than spawning new articles in the articles page, and as a result my anal retentive (note: has no hyphen) scheme for article ordering broke down. That be fixed now, and I'm going to give developing some site software to organize that process another shot this year.
  • Post the Article Backlog Starting February 1st, the backlog of articles I've already written hits the site (including the prequel to this whine).
  • Delude Myself About Keeping A Schedule A minor update every two weeks, with a new article or piece of artwork every month. Period. Let's see how that works.
  • Get The Projects Going And finally, I threatened at earlier points to actually start working on projects for this website --- posting backlogs of old stories, writing new material for the site, plus a few secret projects. OK, now we're going to give that a try --- first with a few short stories to the site, then with the secret projects.

Will it work? Eh, who knows. But I'm going to give it a shot. And I hope you enjoy it. If you don't, there are only another billion web pages out there, so I'm sure you can find something to occupy your online time.
