Murphy’s Law

tumblr_m85j3sRBgy1qh8umto1_500For any of you who aren’t familiar with Murphy’s Law, it’s an old adage… “Anything that can go wrong, will.”

And just so you know, Murphy, the original guy, the Murphy in Murphy’s Law… yeah, his birthday is closer to Christmas than Jesus Christ’s. I think there’s a connection. Just saying.

So… I’m offering fair warning. My life isn’t just bogged down with the normal shit of staring down the barrel of a gift giving holiday with six kids to buy for… Of course not, why would it be so easy?

With Christmas and all the other craziness I have going on right now, I’m having a hard time focusing on anything for long.

I know your favorite stories are being neglected. I know you waiting for updates.

I’m not ignoring them or quitting on them… I just can’t get my head on straight.

So when you see new chapters to new stories, try not to hate me… I’m still writing, and I’ll eventually come back to whatever story you’re looking forward to. Promise.

The stories might be on hiatus, but I’m not. Writing is my therapy.


Since my last post, I’d published:

Bright Things

Chapter 3: Last Rites

Chapter 4: Newborn



Chapter 6: Painless


And a new strand in the Braid…

The only reason this isn’t a one-shot like Shitheel or Home fires is the timing of it. There will only be two chapters.



Thanks for hanging in there with me.

  1. And we are thankful for anything and everything that you write and share with us! Hope the holidays and life in general are not too crazy. Thanks

  2. Yep, I agree with the others, if I had so many kids and a husband I think my hobby would be sitting down. You do great, I’m really enjoying Breathless. Anything with Gawain and the boys gets me 🙂

  3. Please keep writing to your own schedule and gracing me with any greatness you seem fit to share. Those impatient bitches can just google for Skarsporn in the meantime. I’m sending prayers, good juju and plenty Naked Viking Vampire Sheriffs to you and your muses for support throughout this Fangy Holiday Season.

  4. Hope you get a chance to enjoy the holidays! it seems like kids rejuvinate our love of the holiday, seeing it through fresh eyes. Update when you can and we’ll be here when the holidays blow over —

    Hope your hubby isn’t as useless as mine is when it oomes to buying gifts, decorating, wrapping gifts, sending out Christmas cards. On second thought, the only thing he is really good for is helping to string the lights across the top of the tree as I’m only 5’2″… he does have his uses 🙂


  5. When patience is rewarded with such wonderful presents, how can we deny you? Your new stories are wonderful, your old stories are wonderful, keep imagining to your heart’s content. I guarantee we will all keep reading. Take care of yourself, and merry christmas!

  6. The effort you put in to these stories is just amazing!

    We all know how RL gets…so no worries there when it comes to updates, I usually just check to see if anything new has been added anyway…..

    As always, thanks for the stories and Happy Holidays!

  7. You have spoiled us all with the ‘good shit’ that others ‘outside the multi-verse community’ are starting to notice the twitching, which is a clear sign that we’re addicted to something.

    All together now, we will get what we get and we won’t throw a twitching fit!!!

    Happy Holidays to you and your family!!!!!

  8. In my house Murphy is considered to be not only a family member but also a freaking optimist! Thank heavens for the salvation of the grape, the occasional glass of vino helps….. just a trifle.

    My twitchy butt will be satisfied with whatever you throw us.

    Cheers to you and yours during the Holiday Season!!

  9. Sorry to be a bother when you have so many things going on but, how does one get the password to chapter 2 of intrepid? Thanks in advance.
