You’ll notice that I am using a truly delightful stock theme. I intended originally to use something unique, but designing a website that looks awesome and functions correctly is fairly low on my priority list these days. Yet, I wanted to get The Black Laser up and running so that I could use it as a sort of sketchpad to get my brain running while I get stuck in a writing hole. With that in mind, I settled on the most attractive theme I could find and will make something later, probably when time frees up after the holidays. Or around the holidays depending on what the future brings and if I can manage to blast out 20 to 25 pages of sparkling, warm, cynical, magical, wondrous prose by then. You never know. Maybe—just maybe—I will stumble into the most productive period of my life, spewing forth such prose and quality of thought as I never before. More likely though, I will struggle to finish right up to the deadline, as is my wont. Some patterns you just can’t fuck with.

Nevertheless, stay tuned (that is a TV/radio metaphor, not a stringed instrument one). Good things are to come to The Black Laser, the darkest, most devastatingest laser in the universe.
