No more Patreon.

Xial here.   Bit of a quickie: I had placed my Patreon on hold for a bit, because I haven't had the time or focus to sit down and work on Partners like I wanted. I've hit a point where my personal time has honestly dwindled, courtesy of having housemates that are social creatures. No,…

I’m up entirely too late to bring you this.

Just a quick thing. I've really not had any time to work on writing, between needing to rebuild hardware*, working a new job (Thursday through Monday, of all things. Send sushi moneys to $xial), and having social housemates (Wednesday night dinners, really). I've had my Patreon on pause for the past couple of months as…

Progress, at a glance.

It's been a while. Welcome along, folks. I've not been as diligent on Partners as I wanted to be. So, as I've mentioned back in Painuary and Februargh, I had a slip and fall that took its toll on my right hand and wrist. In March, I started getting better, though I do heal slower…

Pandoc toolchain update, with Partners.

Hey folks, Xial here. The boyfriend was kind enough to load the story onto his bookreader and send me a handful of photos so I know what's going on as I work my way through the master file and get the editing works done on Partners. This does wonders for my mood, knowing that it's…

I have the BEST boyfriend.

Hey folks, Xial here. I've mentioned in the past in a couple of places that I am having some toolchain issues -- namely with conversion and ePub output for converting Partners. What I hadn't mentioned as much is how much the broken toolchain demoralizes me as an editor. The annoyances of trying to edit a…

Painuary, Februargh, and Updates.

A bit of a repost from my Patreon, in order to spare my shoulder and wrist from the flames. I had this nice little audio post that I had put together in Painuary (last month) that was intended to update everyone that was interested as to the lack of activity. Sadly, when making an audio…

Happy Crimbo.

Hey folks. I'm aware the day is mostly over, but still, I figure that I'd wish people a Happy Crimbo (or whichever holiday you follow-day here). Spent a little time in and out of the hospital over the past week, but I am starting to do much better. So much so that I got in…

A brief rant on cellular connectivity.

I promise to keep this brief, because it doesn't quite fit the theme I wanted to set here, and yet it does have an effect on me. Modern tech is designed to be convenient, with services delivered often at the press of a button. I'm not getting this out of my mobile carrier. For the…

A fresh can of paint.

I caved in. I bought a WordPress theme, because I just haven't felt quite as urged to re-learn PHP and write my own theme again. Granted, the theme I purchased is kind of a special one since it's one of those engines that allows you to (within reason) build what you want within its framework,…
