- writing book 1 was easier because I used writing as a means of procrastination during college.
- I think I also realized that writing on paper is way easier / more intuitive than writing on my computer if I’m in a place like this (that is, uninspired or having a hard time).
- I thought that listening to very modern music would be the best inspiration since book 2 is set in the future in our world, but one day I put on a 90’s alternative rock station for nostalgia’s sake and it has ended up being the best inspiration. this genre deals with so much intensely dark personal and political stuff in such a bare way.
- what’s worse than coping with your own personal demons? attempting to cope with them while the world is falling apart around you and so are your friends and all the support systems that used to be in place for spirituality or mental health or addiction or disease are gone and you have nobody to help you but you.
- if you don’t like dark, gritty stuff, you’re gonna hate book 2.
- if you like that stuff, you’re gonna love book 2.

I just wanted to let the folks in exotic locales (read: not Arizona) know that if they (you! I mean you, reading this!) buy a paperback copy of The Seat of Desolation, I will happily mail you a bookplate signed however you like in lieu of signing your actual book. I have bookplates available in adhesive-back and non-adhesive depending upon your bookplate attachment preferences. These beauties just arrived in the mail today:
(These are the adhesive-backed ones in case you were wondering.) If you are interested, message me with your mailing information and I’ll have one on its way to you post-haste!

Their music has been such an inspiration in working on Some Inferior Angel. If you aren’t familiar with Katatonia, get familiar!

the new Katatonia album is a great help in the inspiration department!
the philosophy essay and the presentation on Heart of Darkness due this week? not so much…
