Weekly Update: 14 August 2021

Some of you may have seen this coming. Last week, I observed in passing that I was only just over eight thousand words shy of hitting the frickin’ two million mark for everything I’ve ever posted on the site as BRK. And, of course, I just couldn’t restrain myself from smacking that carnival strongman bell with my big mallet at the earliest possible moment. My usual goal is five thousand words per update, but this week I just happened to write not one but two chapters of my Patreon-commissioned story, “Resolutions”, together totaling just over 9,200 words and nudging me solidly past a pretty staggering milestone. Not that all of those words are great by any means, but even taking Sturgeon’s Revelation into account there’s still got to be at least a couple hundred thousand words in the pile that I can feel reasonably proud of. (Unless you read Sturgeon as asserting that 90 percent of authors are crap, in which case there’s no doubt I belong with the rest of the fertilizer.) Either way, writing for Metabods means a lot to me and has given me a lot of joy over the years, and I’m happy to have the excuse to thank my past self for putting in all that work—and to express my heartfelt gratitude to all the people who’ve enjoyed my stories with me, then and now.

Lots more this week, too, including the conclusion to “The Ixlutani” and a savory mix of continuations and new beginnings. Hope you find something you appreciate, and remember to comment and upvote the stories you like so that authors know what works.

This week’s Friday Flashback collected stories set wholly or partially in Canada, and it’s not all werewolves and lumberjacks, I promise. Deep thanks to my Patreon supporters; if you’re interested in potentially joining the BRK Patreonite gang, here’s the link. The next update is a week hence, 21 August. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.
