Meta: Now for something completely different.

Though it wouldn't classify as "horror" in any traditional way, I thought I'd use the blog to shamelessly promote my first-ever published work of fiction. That's right, baby, I've gone from copy slut to copy whore – CRwM's getting paid for it now!

The story, titled Abstract, was commissioned by – of all places – Forbes as part of a special report on the future and scenario planning. Warren Ellis, Cory Doctorow, and Max Barry were among the others commissioned for work.

Congradulations as well sir. One of the nicest things I think you can do in life, is finding something you really enjoy doing and getting paid for doing it. So enjoy it for sure. As Miss Heather already said, hopefully this will be the start of a new side-career for you. Who knows where it could lead.

Thanks everyone. I don't think it's my best, but it's a start. Thank you for all the positive feedback.
