Break time for me. I've been posting stuff here almost every weekday since last December, and I need a break. Writing shorts for daily publication is fun, but it hinders me from developing longer pieces. I want to write a Lovecraftian black magic story set in the Old West with a railroad detective investigating the frequent disappearances of Chinese railroad workers. I intend for it to be novella length or more, so I'm going to slow down on Tinfoil Viking Science for a short while.

I'll try to get something up once or twice a week. I still need this place to vomit up my nasty little ulcers.

Thanks for reading.

Well thanks mightily for past favors, Steve. I'll be coming by regular-like to munch on what treats you can spare. Good luck on the trail ahead.

AWE MAN, but you were the one who found my secret blog, and then kept up with me. I NEED YOU!!! But it's cool take your time and let me know when your novel is done.

If you HAVE to take a break, I'm glad it's for good reasons like bigger writing projects.

Once a week is still alot. You are one writing fool!

A very talented fool :)

You da man' Steve. I just spend the last half hour catching up with your posts and thanks.

If I had half of your writing chops, perhaps I wouldn't be welding chicken wire for a living.

I'll look out for ya Steve. A once a week Steve is loads better than none at all :)

I like the premise for the novella. I'd bet you'll find that you have enough going on to fill a whole book though. Have you read a lot of mysteries?

Thanks everybody. Allow me to reiterate: I am not disappearing, just slowing my posting pace.

Steve, I've read very few mysteries. Whether this will impact my project positively or negatively remains to be seen.

Throwing a little changeup once in a while is good for the soul. Buona fortuna. Keep us posted....

Good luck with everything, Steve! I'm looking forward to seeing your next big project, and of course, I'll continue to check in on this blog...

You got a cool cool blog, man. I too am unable to blog as often as I want. It's rough, I don't like to force it - you know?
