Big Update!



I wanted to have at least one substantive post before I let Chapter 2 out into the world on Friday.


So you’re getting this:


I did my taxes instead. I apologize in advance for my momentary lapse into adulthood.

Cows and Such

Hope everyone is enjoying Chapter One. I swear Chapter Two is on it’s way. It even has a snazzy title. Want to know what it is?


Then go check out the new countdown timer at the bottom of the page! What can I say I’m a sucker for new trinkets. The timer should be accurate too. I’ve been a little busy lately, hence the fewer updates, but we should be back on track.


And if you stick around for Chapter Two, you’ll find out what the whole Happiness Index is all about.


Hope everyone is keeping up on their writing goals. If you’re not and you need support, I’ll happily supply you with absurd words of encouragement.


All you have to do is ask.

Jeopardy Test, Game Theory, and Biting (Part II)

I figure after dropping the news that I was doing the Jeopardy thing that I might as well tell you how I did. Short answer: Better than normal! After trolling the Internet in the most obsessive way possible, I found a transcribed list of questions along with a list of (unofficial though not likely wrong) answers.


My completely non-legit score: 40/50


By conventional Jeopardy wisdom, this is a passing score. Now I just have to cross my fingers I get pulled from the pool of overachievers to do an audition. (Don’t hold your breath, but any well wishings will be received in the spirit they are given!)


As for the Game Theory class, I watched a few more lectures and expanded my knowledge base a few more centimeters. Not much more to report.


All in all, a pretty good week I should say. 


Oh, and my sister had a good birthday. 

Fourteen Days Is Two Weeks Is a Fortnight

It’s Friday night, so I’ll keep this short.

Two weeks from tonight chapter one will be released. I’ve received some feedback from the preview and while it’s mostly positive, you will probably notice that the full chapter is slightly different. 

Do not panic. 

The difference will be purely in form, not content. (And I’ll fixing that disappointment we discussed earlier.)

So this really just serves as a general update: The prognosis is good!

We’re still on track, and there are a few new pictures over at the Happiness Index. You should check that out too. You know where it is. (And if you don’t, check the menu out at the top of the main page.)

Happy weekend all, and keep checking back for updates. You’ve all been great motivators, and though I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, “Thanks!”
