So, this is interesting. I’m fairly certain that the campaign manager of the candidate for City Clerk whose mailing I criticized the other day has made an incredibly ill-advised attempt to start shit with me on Facebook. At the moment it’s just a couple of posts, to which I have responded in what I’ve come to think of as my I’m Being Gentle Right Now but It Won’t Last Much Longer tone. The follow-up to IBGRNbIWLML is I Have Fourteen Thousand Followers Between My Blog and Twitter; Do You Want the Internet Dropped On Your Head Two Days Before the Election?
That one may need a snappier name.
At any rate, I’m hoping that the silly people recognize that antagonizing voters before a low-turnout primary election is a real bad idea and back off. We’ll see.
Stuff what I wanna do today: I have tickets to Age of Ultron at 3:00, and the wife and I plan to have dinner together somewhere civilized afterward; there is a final wrap-up A to Z post to write, and I’d like to spend some time planning out what’s next in what I’m pretending is my writing career.
Speaking of that: my story for the Swords v. Cthulhu anthology made it to the final round but was rejected. It is, at the moment, directly Cthulhu-linked. In other words, it directly references Shub-Niggurath, as you might expect from a story entitled Warrior Jayashree and the Young. It’ll therefore need a touch of rewriting before I can submit it to other markets.
Or I could just post it here. I haven’t posted any short fiction in a while. What say you?
