A Cast Of Characters (for a story not yet written) is a collection of 60 short illustrated descriptions of strange people, pets, places, and portents. A sort of sequel to last year's A Book Of Beasts (previously on projects; metafilter), this was initially intended as a stand alone thing (hence the subtitle), but since then I've been writing Tales From The Town, which is a series of (very) short stories using the above cast of characters, set in a Moomins meets Twin Peaks sort of world, and with new episodes being published weekly (it's up to tale #7 at the moment).

As a result of life getting in the way, I've really let my writing lapse in the past few years. I'm finally working on a bigger project now, and I wanted a separate venue to write short, unrelated vignettes as a way of flexing my writing muscles and getting back in the habit of putting something down on paper every day. This Tumblr is that venue.
