OOC – Happy birthday

This blog is one year old. I don’t have much to say about that but it seems worth remarking on. I like writing this, I wish more people liked reading it. When I started this blog at first it seemed like it was going to gain more traction than my other blog, but the firstContinue reading “OOC – Happy birthday”

My loyal and stalwart and tall editor has pointed out that the run with the Thurston Hotel, while engaging and interesting and horrifying, was muddled and confusing. Looking backContinue reading “Be Kind Please Rewind (Out of character)”
