Hi again! (and LOH: 056-058 ++)
The momentum of silence has gotten pretty overwhelming around here. The longer I go without saying something, the greater the urge to have that "comeback" post be the greatest thing ever, the Nobel Prize-winning, sliced-toast-beating collection of devastating witticisms that will cure cancer, poverty, starvation, cholera, and the Republican party.

Pretty clearly, that isn't happening. I mean, not even my writing can fix Sarah Palin.[*]

But anyway! I should at least say something and start trying to kick the silence habit. After all, I've kept myself pretty busy -- just not here. Witness:
  • Oh hey wasn't there this novel I was posting to the Web? Even though I haven't mentioned anything about it since ... um ... May?

    Then there was a month where I disappeared off the radar. I'm better now. And I came back with:

  • Change of Mind -- even if you've been giving the novel a pass, this short story (~7500 words) about a mage's experiences with telepathy-as-mental-health-tool should be worth your time. A tip o' the hat to dragonzuela, who challenged me with the original concept in my Writing Requests thread.

  • And

    Racing Stripes

    -- a tongue-in-cheek self-portrait. Oh, and you knew I had an art gallery, right? The newest piece of art there is from around the time of John McCain's bar mitzvah[*], but it's the first time I've ever posted them so let's just call them "new" and be done with it.
There's much more to say, as ever and always; but for now i'll be content with re-breaking the ice.

Hey, I just right now happened upon this: ClaWrite?

That's ... wow. There's a strong possibility of convergent evolution here (they have played with geometrization of letters before), but that's still pretty remarkable. The "D" as square is not common at all. Perhaps I should track down their designer and ask. :)

Speaking of ClaWrite! I have been thoroughly remiss in not posting your beautiful font, but I did have a specific question I needed cleared up first. I've dropped you an e-mail to the address in your LJ profile.

(*fires a fully self-guided mouse to glomp onto your leg and keep you here!*)

Hi! Missed you. Glad you're back. :)

Glad to have you back! I know the self-reinforcing-silence problem. It's annoying. I take comfort in this rule: instead of apologizing for not blogging, apologize by posting new content. Doesn't have to be great, just go back to posting. It's good to see you around here again.

Also, thanks for your reassuring comments recently.
