Dear Dream Eater: The, “It’s not really a big deal, you’re over-reacting, chill out,” move is always a jerk tactic. See also: Just because something is “technically” accurate doesn’t somehow make it morally right. Furthermore: Sleep is important dude. Stringing Zhiro out on no sleep is a really bad idea. Kid has it hard enough as it is. I mean, seriously. Seriously. Stahp.
It has been a very exciting few days!! We’re almost at 50% of our funding for book 4, and we broke the $2,000 milestone yesterday afternoon (thank you Sharon!!). We were also chosen by Kickstarter as a “Project We Love!” which is pretty dang nifty! Thank you to everyone who has supported! If you have a moment today to share the project, please do. It makes a huge difference and I would deeply appreciate it. Let’s keep this momentum going!!
Also, if you missed it last Friday, I posted Part One of an Autobiographical short called “Invisible”. I’ll be posting one new part every Friday for the next nine weeks and storing them on their own special part of the site, so they won’t clutter up the normal archive. It’s about a lot of things, but the common thread between everything is how I’ve felt the need to hide pieces of my identity from the world, and the process of learning to overcome that self-erasure. I hope you’ll find it interesting and valuable.
I was going to talk about my ongoing battle with the Juniper That Won’t Just Die in my front yard, and the life lessons I’ve been learning in the attempt to dig it out, but I’m just exhausted so I will save that for another day. Maybe next time, yeah? Yeah. *zonks out*
