A long time ago, I wrote a short story about a kid who works in a coffee house. In what was a serious surprise to me, the darned thing wouldn’t just finish itself, and eventually it ended up being around three hundred pages long.
That’s pretty long. Novel-length, some would say. So I shopped it around for a few months, got no bites, and got irritated and put it online as a blog, using Rodin. I spent a few bucks on advertising, updated it as a chapter-book every couple of days, and ended up with quite a few readers, some of whom I’m still friends with. It was quite gratifying.
I forgot about it for a while, and then the site was discovered by comment – spammers, and they spammed me so much it nearly knocked me offline. So I took it down completely, then decided to re-post it here as simple pages. So, without further ado, here’s Guy Stuff. Some of it feels dated, as most of it was written over four years ago. But I really like it; it’s funny and angsty and everything that I wanted it to be when I wrote it.
