Corbett-877 #6

This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series Corbett-877

School’s well underway and we are back on track! Sorry for the momentary disturbance. And for those who dropped a tip in the hat — thank you. It’s well appreciated.

One cool thing about doing flashbacks in these episodes? It’s actually really freaking easy to work out the timestamps for them. Hooray for the metric system!

Well, the decimal time system.

Anyway, here’s Corbett-877 #6.

Lovelace 1/2 #13

This entry is part 13 of 13 in the series Lovelace 1/2

As stated in the Labor Day post, this is one of the busiest two week periods we have in the business of academia. We’ve spent the summer prepping for students and faculty to return, but when they actually do return, things get amazingly crazy, amazingly fast. That’s where we are now, for those playing along at home. So, if my prep time was pushed to mid-day instead of morning… well, for the next two weeks that may happen. Sorry. (insert smily faced emoticon here.)

Of course, actually posting this has been a trial given some hosting company issues….

As for this particular episode of Lovelace 1/2….

Well, it was a hard one to write, but it’s also the first episode I conceptualized from beginning to end as an episode, before I even wrote #1.

Here it is.

Interviewing Trey #12

This entry is part 12 of 12 in the series Interviewing Trey

And here we are at the end of the week, and with any kind of luck at all, this post will actually appear on Friday. My old friend Jonathan Lennox thinks that a modern myth discussing the scheduling daemons that actually put the posts up at their appointed times is in order, to perhaps mollify said spirits and give them the recognition they deserve. I’m pretty sure he’s right. It’s generally a mistake to get those guys angry at you. Think about how many scheduled events you have in your life on a day to day basis.

But, that’s not for today. Today we’ve got the second Trey post this week, getting us caught back up. Hope you like it!

Lovelace 1/2 #12

This entry is part 12 of 13 in the series Lovelace 1/2

So. It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s Lovelace 1/2.

This is an exceptionally busy time for me, day job wise. I work at a school — for the record, not Brooks-Carillon. In fact, my school and Brooks-Carillon aren’t that much alike, beyond a superficial similarity common to many private schools. However, we’re gearing up for the start of the school year, and this means my days are long and my nights are short.

Naturally, one of the pivotal moments of the story hits this week.

Here we go….

Interviewing Trey #11

This entry is part 11 of 12 in the series Interviewing Trey

Tuesday, and it’s time to play catchup with Interviewing Trey. Which I hope was worth the wait, because in this episode….

Oh God, I don’t know if I dare say it… no, wait. I must say it.

In this episode… he actually interviews Trey

I know. Shocking.

Here it is. Lovelace tomorrow, then more Trey on Friday. Thanks as always, and tip your waiters.

(One last thing. Trey’s opinions should not be taken as the author’s. But we knew that, right?)

Corbett-877 #5

This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series Corbett-877

Hey hi, all!

As a reminder, Interviewing Trey returns tomorrow at 9 am EDT, covering the phantom episode from last Friday. Then Lovelace 1/2 as we always expect on Wednesday, and then the next episode of Interviewing Trey on Friday. Got all that? Cool!

But it’s Monday right now, which means Corbett-877.

One thing that’s interesting about writing these is the aspect of serializing novels. Though I pretty much number these as episodes, they’re mostly structured as novels, broken into scenes with certain dramatic necessities taking place in certain ways. This is as much an opportunity for first-drafting as anything else. As a result, we make it to, say, part 5 of Corbett-877 and find ourselves still in Corbett’s Coffee. In one sense, we’re still in ‘Part One’ of the book.

The name of that part? “The Latest Liam Corbett.”

Here ’tis. Have fun!

Lovelace 1/2 #11

This entry is part 11 of 13 in the series Lovelace 1/2

There is something about Lovelace 1/2 that inspires me to be late in posting. It may be because I tend to prep these episodes during hectic times of the week, which means its easier to miss something. I do my Corbett-877 prep over the weekends, so there’s always plenty of time. Likewise, I have the full week to get Interviewing Trey prepped, but poor Andi’s prepwork always feels rushed. That may be why I miss more typos on the reread, too. I’ll work on that, and beg your indulgence.

I actually go into detail on Andi’s appearance, down below. For the record, I use a face reference I culled from the Internet, to make sure my descriptions are consistent. I’d post it, but I haven’t paid the photographer for the picture, so actually posting it wouldn’t just be rude, it would be… well, wrong. I’ll see if I can get permission to link to the appropriate page, though. It’s a good picture.

As for this episode….

I think it’s safe to say this is a big one. Please enjoy!

Corbett-877 #4

This entry is part 4 of 6 in the series Corbett-877

And we’re back with a whole new week, and with it a whole new episode of Corbett-877! So far, you guys seem to like the new story — which I suppose is now a month old, so maybe ‘new story’ isn’t quite accurate. Man, time goes quickly.

I’ve had a couple of folks ask if the Myths are coming back. Oh heavens yes — though they’re likely to be ‘open’ posts, done on Tuesdays or Thursdays when the spirit — or spirits — move me. I’ve got some other things that’ll likely be showing up on those days as well. Why? Because they can.

Beyond that… well, I hope everyone’s having a lovely day. Please enjoy!

Interviewing Trey #10

This entry is part 10 of 12 in the series Interviewing Trey

Interviewing Trey is up. I’m just in from seeing the Rifftrax Live production/riffing of Starship Troopers, and I’m fried as all get out, so I’m just throwing it straight to Chapman. Have a good weekend!

Lovelace 1/2 #10

This entry is part 10 of 13 in the series Lovelace 1/2

Wednesday means Lovelace 1/2, and this is no exception. I’m not sure what else to say about that. For those who haven’t seen, yet, you’ll notice brand spanking new Series navigation, including a specific series page for Lovelace 1/2 that even features first post to last post ordering. You have to admit — pretty swank.

Things are definitely moving. Where they go… well.

For the record, there may — may — be a moment of wish fulfillment in this episode.

I hope you enjoy Lovelace 1/2 #11
