July 4th, 2022
“Brushfire exists to reveal and respect the truths of the universe, and to protect and provide for all of its inhabitants.”
I had to find a new way to celebrate the 4th of July, y’all.
For most of the people I know, freedom — religious, personal or otherwise — does not exist for them in a country that was earnestly founded on its promise.
I’m honestly waiting for the first unironic “Well, if you don’t like not having freedom, then get out of America!” comment.
Brushfire really ignited when I asked myself the question: what should a government be?
I asked the same question to several people I know, some of whom I generally agree with and some who I don’t.
Their answers varied wildly, except where they didn’t, and I eventually narrowed my answer down to the mission statement that every member of Brushfire has to memorize.
A way to live our best lives.
Not perfect, but always willing to learn and grow.
If you want to know more about Brushfire, I recommend watching the video I posted on Thursday, unless you’re allergic to feelings and boy tears.
All I’ll repeat is this: it is available today on my website & Amazon. I will release 1 new Wave for 3 years straight on the 4th of July.
It is one of the most personally meaningful stories I have ever created. I’ve never written a character who is closer to who I am than Bay the squirrel.
This is more of a Brushfire week; the Kickstarter packages will start going out on Monday, and I can’t wait for you to get them.
Absolutely all my love on this occasion.
Happy Brushfourth of July.
