(Yes, I know it's September now. Shush.) The last month's been interesting. My gut reaction is to say "No, it hasn't been fruitful" but I don't think that's entirely accurate. Jiharel sat on the backburner through August, although it's still bouncing around in my mind, with a lot of the same challenges and wonderings as I … Continue reading End of August Update
Hello, Internet! Haven't written anything on here for a few weeks. Largely, I haven't felt like I have something interesting to say. I'm still in that state to some degree. But, it's been a while so I figured I ought to at least pop on and talk a little bit on what I've been up to. … Continue reading End of July Update
Hello, internet! Before I dig into what I've been up to this week, I'd like to give a quick shoutout to Summer Games Done Quick. I've mentioned GDQ on here before, but to rehash: they're a charity which does two videogame marathons each year to fundraise for a selected charity. This marathon's donating to Doctors … Continue reading Weekly Update – 6/27/18
Hello, Internet! Well, it's been a pretty busy couple of weeks for me. Mostly for stuff popping up all at once in the current class I'm in (a workshop, toward my MFA); it turns out that when multiple projects need attention in a short time frame, I can't really take a few hours aside to … Continue reading Weekly Update – 6/21/18
Sorry to those of you waiting on my every oh-so-precious word, but no post this week. I owe a workshop submission on Monday, and need to go bury myself in a revision hole.
Hello, Internet! I'm going to try being brief this week, since I'm in the middle of working on a thing and want to get back to it. Being intentionally vague here (more on that below). Forward! Reading I've continued to chip away at Moby-Dick this past week. I'd say I'm somewhere between a third and halfway … Continue reading Weekly Update – 6/6/18
Hello, Internet! Books, books, so many books. I feel like, overall, this past week's been rather productive. I managed to get through The Dragon's Legacy, and then move forward and read the newly released sequel, The Forbidden City (both by Deborah Wolf). I've also made some slow, but solid progress on my short story revision. I'll be … Continue reading Weekly Update – 5/30/18
Hello, Internet! Just gonna hop into it. Reading So last week I set a focus on reading The Silk Roads by Peter Frankopan, and then The Dragon's Legacy and The Forbidden City by Deborah Wolf. I've gotten through The Silk Roads, and I'll mostly be talking about that this week. I'm also about a third of the way through The Dragon's … Continue reading Weekly Update – 5/23/18
Hello, Internet! Been a while, hasn't it? Some days (weeks, months) life catches up on you in an unexpected way. Between editing, school stuff, work stuff (the "pays the bills" kind of work) and family stuff, I've struggled to find time to hammer out a bit of blather on the blog. So unsurprisingly, I do … Continue reading This Is A Post
Sorry all, no post this week. Busy editing.
