The Blogaround

  • Recovering from the holidays and stepping into the New Year, Storiteller and her family are already embracing new experiences and tackling challenges:
    – In A Day at the Museum, she describes visiting a place she loved as a child with her kid – the New York State Museum in Albany.
    – The Night We Finally Did Cry-it-Out chronicles the before and after of the aforementioned night, along with the vast amount of angst it induced in both Storiteller and her son.
    – A Snowy Day is about her son’s first snow day as a toddler, both the frustrations (snow suits!) and joys (snow!).
    – Standing in the Bath…Thinking describes how Storiteller thought her son’s refusal to sit in the bath was sheer defiance, until she thought about it a little differently and came to a good solution for everyone.

    • Anyone who read last week knows that I need money, it started to feel like that was all I was talking about, but it also made it hard to create content with that hanging over my head, so to have some variety I dug up some old works I had yet to post on Stealing Commas:
      • More Sympathy for the Devil – Lucifer explains why one would fight a fight they know they’re doomed to lose.
      • A no-kill Rapture – If, for some unaccountable reason, a benevolent God had to inflict a Rapture upon the world, I think it would probably look something like this.
      • A Light in the Darkness – An angel worthy of the title wanders into Left Behind.
    • Word Problems was my one piece of new, original, non-meta work this week but not-quite fiction.  You know those math/physics word problems you get asked on tests?  Image them being very, very silly.
    • More crap about money:
    • And meta posts:
      • If you can’t comment, tell me – at least one person can’t comment at Stealing Commas, that’s a problem, I’d like to be notified if anyone else is having problems.

    I don’t know whether it counts as the Slacktiverse, but it may be of interest: Keith Bailey, who’s mostly a reviewer of bad and forgotten films, has written about Years of the Beast, with comments at The B-Masters Cabal.
