Here is the Deal(tm).
I am having a wonderful time writing the "State of..." essays, and I'm not dropping the project. Unfortunately, I've been having major sleeplessness issues of late, to the point where my doctor has prescribed chemicals that cause luminescent butterflies to render me largely unconscious during those times. They remind me of Gossamer from this webcomic I once knew....
While my brain chemicals sort themselves out and I get back on track, writing simply isn't. I don't have the brain for it. I've been pushing myself to get back into gear -- I actually just wrote and posted a couple of Superguy episodes to push my head back into writing space. For whatever reason, I've always been able to write Superguy when my brain is starved for rest and oxygen.
With luck, by the end of the weekend I'll have my sea legs under me again, and will be back to "Stating of," and possibly even Justice Wing and/or Myth writing.
And is it weird that my brain is turning a new RPG idea over my head... one that would require me to have a conversation with, in no particular order, Chad Underkoffler, Shaenon Garrity, Phil and Kaja Foglio, Jeffrey Channing Wells, Darren Gav Bleuel, Howard Tayler, David Willis, Andy Weir, Bruce Baugh, Randy "Action" Milholland and Gary Olson? Or is it just sad and hopeless? I don't know -- my brain is soft and sleep deprived.
(No, the project is not "Credenza: The Role Playing Game.")
Regardless, that is the Deal(tm). In the meantime, please enjoy some jazz.
