I'm writing a new choose-your-own-adventure disaster story; it'll be split up into three or four short installments and will include some illustrations and music.

I didn't mean for it to be so long before I got to posting another story, but here we are, more than half-a-year after "Just Short of the Dead" ended, and still nothing.  I was working really hard on planning a non-apocalyptic story, but I got caught in a rut whilst designing the plot, which meant I wasn't writing anything at all.  A few weeks ago, I finally decided that I had to write something if I was going to grow at all, so I put that other story on hold and started a new disaster series (my obvious comfort zone), and split it into short parts (chapters) that'd be easy for me to handle in short periods of time.  I've got a general plot-line down and almost the whole first chapter written up, along with a few simple illustrations to add a little visual interest every few pages.  Since the parts are short, there are less choices, but a denser population of consequences, allowing me to experiment with more long-lasting effects than ever before.

I won't give too many details just yet, but the story revolves around a questionably natural disaster in the vicinity of southern California.  I wanted to give you swell folks a fair heads-up so that any of you who are interested can stay tuned in the following month-or-so.  I plan to have the first chapter out before I move (at the end of the month), but we'll see how that works out.

So there I am, scrolling through my Tumblr dash, when I see a post reblogged from this blog and think "Haha, that was mildly amusing"

And then I notice the name and go "Wat"

And then I notice the similar style and punnage and go "Waaaaaaaaaat"

So now I'm really curious, is that you?

Seems like it...perhaps, maybe, JUST MAYBE, he did something he shouldn't have done and had to disappear to a different web site to escape his assassins!!!!!!

That or he just been doing something new and couldn't find time to make a proper update on his whereabouts.

hey there tom! I know its late but happy new year! I hope you are well as you read this. Please do take your time and let whatever you want work on progress in a manner that doesn't pressure you into burning out. If you ever feel stuck take solace in the reality that all great writers suffer from that and that I for one (though i knowthre are others like me who) can see that you have a great future ahead!

I can't give this the effect I think it should have, but anyway.

Undertale is a good game, it's hella cheap, and it has time shenanigans, sarcastic flavor text, and puns. Please play it.
