I know I have not been posting much lately. I am actually still doing some writing. In addition to the back-burner projects I have been juggling, I am working on lines and scripts for characters in a game mod for Skyrim.

Other than that, I have been trying to keep my nose above water financially. Honestly, at this point, I have more bills and debt than I am able to pay, on my current salary. I am still looking for work, of course; but the anxiety does rob me of sleep these days.

I also am beginning to think that self-publishing was a mistake. No one is buying my book. I think that perhaps the traditional publishing houses knew a thing or two when they rejected my manuscript. It was probably too long, and not easily classifiable. Time to move on, I think.

I will try to post a proper update at some point in the near future. My main concern at this time is to assure all several of you that I have not abandoned my blog.

About Michael Butchin

I was born, according to the official records, in the Year of the Ram, under the Element of Fire, when Johnson ruled the land with a heavy heart; in the Cradle of Liberty, to a family of bohemians. I studied Chinese language and literature at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. I spent some years in Taiwan teaching kindergarten during the day, and ESOL during the evenings. I currently work as a high school ESOL teacher, and am an unlikely martial artist. I have spent much of my life amongst actors, singers, movie stars, beautiful cultists, Taoist immortals, renegade monks, and at least one martial arts tzaddik. I currently reside in Beijing's Dongcheng district
