Massachusetts (A song for two puppets)

Standard
Monotone speaking puppet:
Massachusetts is a state that there are not many songs about. So here is a song about Massachusetts.

Super enthusiastic loud yelling/singing puppet:
Massachusetts!
It is a state!
It is massive! And sets what it chews!
On the east coast!
Of North America!
 –
Yeahhhhh!
 –
Massachusetts!
Has lots of people!
They all live in it!
And some are puppets!
We live here too
 –
Yeahhhh!!

Monotone speaking puppet:
The weather is really unpredictable and there’s nothing to do outside the city unless you like sports and beaches. And eating clams.

Super enthusiastic loud yelling/singing puppet:

Gravinold Broom, the Boy Who Was not a Duck

Standard

Gravinold Broom was nine when he decided that it was time to become a duck. Ducks, he thought, were the best, and to be one would be the best thing for Gravinold Broom.

“How can I become a duck?” He asked his teacher.
“You cannot become a duck,” they replied.
“I will ask others!” Said Gravinold, and he did.
“How can I become a duck?” He asked his mother and father individually.
“You cannot become a duck,” they each replied.
“I will ask others!” Said Gravinold, and he did.
“How can I become a duck?” He asked his nine uncles after gathering them in in the same room.
“You cannot become a duck,” they all replied in unison.
“I will ask others!” Said Gravinold, and he did.
“How can I become a duck?” He asked the Tzar.
“You cannot become a duck and you shouldn’t be asking me anyway,” said the Tzar.
“I will ask others!” Said Gravinold, and he did.
“How can I become a duck?” He asked a duck.
It said nothing and walked away.
This convinced Gravinold that he would not become a duck and would instead be sad forever.
And he was.

My poetry book is slightly updated

My poetry book is slightly updated

Poems for Insects is now formatted a little bit better and has one more poem. I’ve written others since then, but they are being saved for Poems for Bacteria, which is due for release at some non-specific date in the future.

If you already own PfI, you should be able to download the update for free. If you haven’t read it yet, I recommend you get it, but I wrote it so I am biased. Please make this decision yourself.

This isn’t writer’s block.

Standard

Nor is it love. I don’t think, at least.

I have lots of ideas for how this story will end, but it’s taking a while to sort them and pick the ones that both make sense and I like.

I have a feeling I will end up writing multiple endings and letting readers choose their favorite. But then again, I might not.

Thanks for your your patience and continue maintaining up the excellent function while you wait.
