The project I was working on is now complete! I’m very pleased.
What is it, you ask? Well, let me tell you —
No, wait, I can’t tell you yet. Sorry. Soon, though.
But, hey! It’s done! And I’m happy with it. Go me.
On a more technical note, this means my blogging hiatus is officially over and I’ll be resuming normal blatheration soon.
Also, for those of you in the betting pool for when I would crack and start posting Photoshop grotesqueries: HA! Take THAT! I win, send the money my way, please. Thank you.
And four days early, no less. Way to write, Scalzi!
So it was you messing with all those korean websites!
Our long national tragedy is over! Blatheration has resumed.
It’s the Whatwitters that got me. Was the home invasion aided and abetted by Kodi? Also, how did this home invasion work- did you break into the house demanding a book to check out?
“Do you know who I am??? I am Scalzi! and I want to borrow a book NOW!”
Yay! You’ve climbed out of the well!
Yay Scalzi! Speedwriting champeen o’ da Wurrul!
I seem to remember a few comments appearing during your “internet blackout” period.
Just finished The Tale of the Wicked. Great story. I noticed in the story intro that High Castle is still an upcoming novel. This wouldn’t be the “Really Big Writing Project”, would it?
Hooray for “The End!” Well done, Sir. Well done.
from asia minor, welcome back, young scalzi . . .
Scalzi’s editor: Hey! This is about 30,000 words short! Get back to work!
Glad you’re back. With you off on your Super Sekrit Projekt, and Stewart and Colbert on vacation, it was feeling like a complete blackout of (snarky) news.
So, I just push the big red button and the robotic monkey army attacks?
Oh! Cwap. Sorry…
Damn. The house always wins. However, as I keep buying bespoke books from you via the Sub Press guy, I’ll give you the money in that form.
I just started reading your work (outside of the blog) and all I can say is YAHOOOOOOOO! Another great work to keep me enthralled… :-)
Congratulations! I think you may need to bake a very special cake… you know of which I speak…
Whaddya mean done? There’s nothing in my email inbox.
4 days early? I see you are using the Traditional Project Planning Time Estimation Proposal invented by certain SF engineers;
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Yeah. Well, I told the captain I’d have this analysis done in an hour.
Scotty: How long would it really take?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: [annoyed] An hour!
Scotty: [looks unbelieving] Oh. You didn’t tell him how long it would REALLY take, did you?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Of course I did.
Scotty: Oh, laddie. You’ve got a lot to learn if you want people to think of you as a miracle worker.
Congrats on finishing!
Since it was just Steve and I, I don’t think there’s much money involved.
I think you resisted the temptation because we were predicting when you’d break, therefore you owe us money.
Welcome Back, Scalzi.
Your dreams were your ticket out.
To that same old place that you laughed about.
Well the names have all changed since you hung around,
But those dreams have remained and they’re turned around.
Who’d have thought they’d lead ya,
Back Here where we need ya
Yeah we tease him a lot cause we’ve got him on the spot, welcome back,
Welcome back, Welcome back, Welcome back.
That’s disturbing, not the least of which because it implies I’ll have to wear a Gabe Kaplan ‘fro.
[waving arm frantically in the air]
Ooh! Ooh! Mr. Scalzi!
You can tell us what you were doing, but then you would have to kill us, right?
