Welcome to the fondue party, everyone.
2018 is nearly upon us, and I have a lot of writing in store.
In January, I’ll be writing my article for the Satan Superstar issue of The Reprobate magazine. I’ll also be working on my book about the glorious, self-indulgent, decadent joys of solitude, namely:
I’ll also be writing a short novella. I’ve already begun working on it, and it’s a hell of a lot of fun to write. This right here:
It’s a completely imaginary story (with a few historically accurate tidbits, but mostly I’m indulging my fancy) about Mozart and Salieri. It won’t be overly explicit, but it will be sensual and extremely romantic. And fantastical. I’m using a few elements from Amadeus (which itself borrowed heavily from myth, outrageous hearsay, and an opera about Mozart and Salieri), but reworking them extensively to my own liking and purposes. I’ve wanted to write fiction about those two for a long time…
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Rascal is the book that set me free.
In other news, after some hesitation, I’ve launched a Patreon page.
It’s the first time I’ve done any type of “support my work” donation thing. There are several tiers, and I may add more in the months to come, possibly. I’m going to continue updating this blog, my main logospilgrim.com/Wordpress blog, a couple times a month; the rest of the time, I’ll blog on my Patreon. Those special blog posts will be accessible to my patrons only (those who contribute to the $1 a month tier). The encouragement I’ve received on Twitter convinced me that setting up a Patreon page was an excellent thing for me to do.
I am worthy of it. I deserve it. I’ve worked hard, for a long time, and I’ve acquired a great deal of experience over the years, doing what I do.
Note that this is also me right now, after creating said page:
In all seriousness, I’m fabulously happy I finally had the nerve to do this. I almost didn’t, because of the recent Patreon kerfuffle (among other reasons, such as “who the fuck am I to ask for patrons”), but thankfully they backtracked, did away with their disastrous new policies, and apologized profusely to their users. So… Here we are ACK.
This is going to help me create in all tranquility. I’ll write even more. Writing is my focus.

It is cold as you-can’t-even-imagine over here right now. Being indoors rules more than ever. Tomorrow morning, with the windchill, it’ll feel like -40º Celsius. It’s going to take a number of days before it starts “warming up” in my neck of the woods.
Mr P is in the kitchen making me some food as I type this, to calm me down. My heartburn has kicked it up a notch again. Hahahaha.
I’ve come a long way to be where I am, and I’m happy. I’m proud.
