Truth. Justice. Minesweeper.

Tuesday, August 30, 2005

When I started writing this thing, I did it for several reasons:

1. I wanted to write something long, and finish it.
2. I wanted to get into the habit of writing regularly.
3. I thought it would be fun to write something in blog form.
4. For reasons that most of you would probably find pretty strange, I believed that I was running out of time in which I could tell this particular story effectively, and wanted to get on with it.

I never had the idea that I was just going to keep writing it indefinitely. I was going to tell the story until it was over, and then stop. Which is what I've done.

As far as what happens next in the story... I have some ideas about the future of the superheroes of Empire City, but they aren't interesting enough to post here. No idea what Dennis and Ingrid get up to, and if they were real people, they'd prefer it that way, so that's fine. I won't say I'm never going to write about any of these people again, but I would have to have an idea for them that I really wanted to write about, and I am not seeking out such ideas specifically.

If anyone is still jonesing for superhero-related blogs, I linked to a few on the sidebar. And there are other good ones out there - the Faceless Henchwoman, the Flash, others.

For that matter, one of the things I'm going to be doing more of, now that Sliced Bread 2 is done, is updating my other website, here. All my future superhero-related thoughts will certainly show up there.

In addition, I owe some writing to these people and these people and these people. So that'll be fun.

The real reason why I'm posting here is to thank everyone reading this. All of you who did me the great honour of reading something I wrote, who left comments, who told their friends to check it out, who linked to me... I really appreciate it. I had fun, and I hope everyone else did too.

(And if this is the first time you've ever seen this website, feel free to use the date-links in the sidebar to navigate through the story and see what I'm talking about.)

Thanks again,
