STATE OF THE TROUT: Chaotic Creativity Proving More Chaotic Than Previously Expected

Posted in Uncategorized

Time for an update, all you weirdos and beautiful freak-outs!

Remember back in July when I wrote and co-directed a music revue? Well, that has now rolled into co-directing a children’s theater musical. My co-director, musical director, choreographer, and I were all in Chicago together, so we know and have worked with each other before. In fact, my musical director and I first met when we were both in the BROADWAY WORLD REGIONAL THEATER AWARD NOMINATED WAR PAINT. Just wanted to throw that in there, every day until I die.

Before I start spilling details about it here, I have to check and make sure what I’m allowed to talk about this early in the process, but the auditions and callbacks are finished and only one staff member has threatened to resign so things are actually going really well for a community theater production!

However, this means an adjustment in my schedule that I was not anticipating, so as of right now, Queen of Hell is delayed so I can focus on the Patreon and our blog features here.

I’ll also be temporarily suspending regular additions to the merch shop because the only time I’ve had to draw lately has been focused on sets and puppets and projection images. But I did add two new items, Keep Calm and Capybara, which is a non-Trout Nation related design (I just like animals), and the shirt that I would have liked to have had ready during the Olympics but I was sidelined by quality/proof issues: Scamlympics. You, too, can walk around wearing the infamous “Las Vegas Olympian” comment, with my favorite parts highlighted in red.

Those might have been the only things I needed to mention. Oh, and if you’re not subscribed to my YouTube channel yet, help me out and subscribe? I’m trying to reach 1,000 subscribers so I can stream from my phone and finally do Fitshaced Fortuneteller again.

    So around when will queen of hell come out? Just binged nightmare born (and loved it) because I peaked at the end and it said it was supposed to be released in 2020 but it took forever to find any info about the sequel and I can’t wait to read it

    I have found some decent books and some ok books, but also some oh noooo from booktok. That minotaur book was a hells yes. My only gripe is that us millennials are now approaching 40, thank you very much.

    I read the ice planet books so long ago that I need to reread them to have an opinion past, I liked them and read a bunch of them until I lost track of which ones I had read.

    I do like her post-apocalyptic dragon books though! I thought they were really great.
