Giraffe Cyborg Cleans House!

Hey, Gang!

I'm tired and useless-wobbly right now as is not unusual on Mondays these days. I work very long days on the weekend, then have to be back at work at 5 a.m. Monday morning. It's amazing I'm good for anything once I slog through that.

But fuck all that noise. The real reason I'm here is to point you toward my latest story, Giraffe Cyborg Cleans House! which you can find over at Diabolical Plots through this here linkage:

Giraffe is number 144 of The One-Thousand and marks the time I was crawling back to fiction writing after thinking I had left it behind for good in that long-forgotten year of 2013. I actually didn't think I had what it took to finish this one, and asked some good friends to slap me across the face (metaphorically speaking), which they did. I finished the thing and was quite happy with it. I hope you will be too.

I haven't done NaNoWriMo in years. Haven't even paid much attention to it in a while, but I decided today to give it a shot, in my own matty way. The average Mango script runs about 1,250 words. 50,000 words means about forty Mango scripts. I only have about 45 left to write in total to finish this year, do the promised personalized episodes for super-donors, and do 2016's MuchoMangoMayo.

The thought of all those shows has been dogging me, especially because I've only been able to get one Mango done a week lately. I'm going to push myself now. If I can do MangoWriMo and it doesn't destroy me, it will make life much better after November.

Here we go!
