Guess what time it is?

September 12, 2008

It’s time for a tasty little drop of Bleakly.

More inbound to hit sporadically over the weekend, as I’ve finally outlined the upcoming subplots to the degree I feel happy with them.

I love all you guys and I promise I’m gonna write for you more. ‘Cause it’s fun for you (hopefully) and fun for me (definitely.)

Bleakly Fifteen

New Bleakly Here!

Thanks to me being bored this morning, quality on this mofo is bigger and better! Also, I proofread and added some stuff to Bleakly 14! I know it’s supposed to be a serial thing but I view it more as a novel-in-progress.

Don’t worry, I won’t retcon anything major. Just spelling and bad writing.


Bleakly Thirteen

June 28, 2008

Unlucky number 13 whoa-oh.

I was being carried. Every part of me was tingling and I had trouble putting one thought in front of another. I almost wished I had all my old problems.

My non-acquaintance the monologuer was very busy yelling at someone at about the point I’d recovered enough of myself to hear.“We’ve got no use for him anymore. He’s gone totally starkers, anyone could see that. He won’t be missed. Make him disappear.”

To read the rest of today’s Thomas Bleakly, PI, click here.

Also, today marks the day that I officially have written over 10,000 words of Thomas Bleakly, Private Eye.

Here’s to small milestones!

Bleakly Twelve

June 26, 2008
I did my best to calm and comfort her. I made tea, brought a blanket in from my car, and began mentally compiling any scrap of information that could help me figure out exactly what was wrong with Thomas. She finished telling me what she knew over a cup of tea. She told me everything- she’d gone to Bleakly, Bleakly had poked around. She’d bought him a sandwich.

He liked her, and it wasn’t hard to see why. She was earnest, intelligent, and heartbroken.

I shook my head. “The question is, where is he now? I know he hasn’t abandoned you or your father.I know Tom. He wouldn’t abandon a case. ” Especially not with a beautiful, heartbroken woman involved.



Bleakly Nine

“Do you know why they outlawed the ShockCollar, Bleakly?”

 At this point, I’m pretty sure my brain was on “Record-only” mode. I didn’t respond. I didn’t want to respond. I was having a pretty bad day, and for me… for me, that’s saying a lot. “I was having a bad day,” said the guy for whom having a good day meant throwing up less than twice and not getting shot at.

 So yeah. If I responded, it was probably by spitting up blood.




Bleakly Six: Return of the Bleakly

June 19, 2008

Walking this city’s littered streets under its brown-gray sky is, like I said, my favorite part of a case. Now, I’m not saying it wasn’t miserable or dangerous. It’s just that this was the part where the bad guys were the thugs holding the guns. This was the simple part. Everything’s nice and clear-cut at that point. No moral ambiguity, so I didn’t have to feel bad about the things I was gonna do to those people… especially because I was gonna do it in self-defense.

Starting to get cheerful there, Bleakly. Gotta concentrate on that slug in your shoulder. Gotta concentrate on the way the cold cuts through that trenchcoat…

And there we go.
