Writing

More Than A Few Words

Welcome to the writing home of Madison Scott-Clary.

I am an author of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry living in Loveland, Colorado. My interests lie in the realms of furry fiction and non-fiction, collaborative fiction, and hypertextual writing. I am a member of the Furry Writers' Guild, and editor for several projects, fiction and non-fiction.

This site collects several of my written works, as well as blog entries that touch on several topics. When a new standalone work is posted outside of the blog, a blog entry often accompanies it, so feel free to follow the blog feed for pointers to new stories, non-fiction pieces, and poems, as well as works in progress!

Help support my writing!

Poetry dump

posted in poetry on 12 Feb 2017

Whoops! I accidentally stayed up way too late fleshing out a bunch of poems from Missives, plus two more drafts! Oh well. Sleep is cheap, I guess. Anyway, there’s a whole bunch of new poems and stuff in the poetry section. Since I’m an incurable dork, this includes a PDF of collected works generated from the individual poems themselves.

Qoheleth

posted in fiction on 26 Jan 2017

Qoheleth was an ARG, or Alternate Reality Game, which took place primarily online (there was one physical clue, but it was designed to not be required), but it was also a story in five parts. Each step of the way revealed more of the story itself, with the final piece containing instructions on how to notify on completion. Some crypto, some secrets, some digging.

How Charming - Part 3

posted in tech, how-charming on 05 Jan 2017

In the previous entry, we started the process of pulling together our charm, including a lot of configuration values. Some of those were standard charm fare, metadata and configuration values, but some were configuration for the charm layers. We also investigated what layers were and how they’re different from hooks. If you haven’t read the first two entries, please make sure that you do so, or this one won’t make much sense!

posted in gender on 20 Dec 2016

This is mostly a scratchpad of notes right now; I will likely clean it up when I have more spoons, but getting my raw notes out felt like a good idea.

How Charming - Part 2

posted in tech, how-charming on 16 Dec 2016

In the previous part, we started to nail down what it is that we’re going to do to try and accomplish our task. We’re going to write a charm - a package that represents a way to deploy a piece of software repeatably to the cloud - which does all that’s needed to host a WSGI app. It will be able to talk to several different services and use any WSGI server. If you haven’t yet, check that post out first!
