Shadilay Brethren, I’d like to take the time to thank The Supreme Dark Lord, Davis Aurini, Bradford Walker and the rest of you for the absolutely ridiculous traffic spike this blog has gotten in the last two days.
To put things into perspective a normal day around here has maybe 25-30 views. If I post a good article that gets a little buzz things might spike up to 70-100 views.
In the last three days as a result of covering the launch of Alt*Hero I have gotten, 255, 790 and 819 page views respectively. That’s what? a 2000% increase!!! Needless to say it got my attention.
While I have no idea how many of you will stick around in order to become proper Magic Space Aryans I do hope you’ve all been entertained.
Many a truth is said in jest and I’m come to accept that such is my lot in life.
This is the second time I’ve a had a post go viral enough to actually scare me and if I made a complete ass of myself the first time I’d like to think that I’m a bit more seasoned and confident now.
I may surprise some of you to learn that this is supposed to be a writer’s blog. Even though it seems that I’m doing a great deal more Culture War Commentary than actual writing.
So what do I need to do? I need to sperg less and write more.
My current main project is going to be a ‘space navy novel’ set in the Breylandverse and done in the spirit of David Weber’s early work; hopefully very short and simple.
Current working title is Decisive Action. I don’t really want to give any details until I have more of the actual work done. However one thing I find note worthy is that I’m using a lot of what on the surface appear to be ‘diversity’ characters for the reason that their divided loyalties made for a much more interesting dynamic.
A Chapter done in the Spirit of Pinochet (Too funny not to share immediately after I wrote it.)
For my older readers I’m afraid that I’m going to have to delay Brothers In The Dust for the reason that I’m not really confident enough that I can properly write small scale infantry combat. Added to the intimidation factor is that the sort of people who would buy a novel like that are going have put considerable amounts of lead down range.
I’ll probably come back to BITD once I’ve actually gotten another less ambitious story done.
I keep having to scale down and simplify. I guess that’s where the Pulp Revolution comes in.
Anyway If I go silent for a few days it’s because I’m trying to actually focus on a project and get something done. I’ll try to keep people updated but I have a lot of demons to wrestle and I don’t always have the upper hand.
Politics and the Alt-Right: I’ll comment on something if it pisses me off enough or if I need to get my thoughts written down in order to organize them. Otherwise I need to back off a bit and take care things closer to home.
And yes I pretend to be a Viking on the Internet, I find it pisses off the right people and keeps the T-level up.
I’ll finish this post with this old worldbuilding exercise; which some of you might enjoy in the wake of Alt*Hero.
We are the Cult of Life. Begone ye, Thots of Death!
