The Daily Report

I’m in a bit of an awkward spot right now, insofar that my writing is paying off more… in a way that doesn’t pay off as frequently or immediately. The recent surge and (so far, sustained) upswing in book sales prompted largely by the visibility of my parody book “John Scalzi Is Not A Very Popular Author” is going to make the next few months, at least, more comfortable and less tense, but right now I am dead broke and running out of the pills that keep my body and brain chugging along without complaint.

So if you’ve been enjoying what I do—whether it’s blogging, writing, or twittering about—and you’d like to help keep me dancing for your amusement without interruption, this would be a great time to leave something in the tip jar or send any of the OTC supplements in my Amazon wishlist (they’re listed in order of current priority). I have been rationing my dopamine boosters lately to try to avoid a hard crash, but that can only take me so far. Already it’s getting harder and harder to get going in the day. I’m getting lots of small stuff done, but the big stuff is still pretty daunting.

The State of the Me

Looming crisis aside, doing okay.

Plans For Today

Well, it’s noon thirty and I’m still kind of pulling myself together for the day? I’m going to have lunch and then go cloister myself away to see what I can make happen.
