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.
Hello, Internet! This week's been alright. I'm feeling OK about how things have gone. Before I dig too into it, though, I'd like to highlight a cool tool I found online - Inkarnate.com. It's an in-browser program that lets you build nifty maps. It's easy to use, and has a free version and a yearly … Continue reading Weekly Update – 4/18/18
Hello, Internet! This week's been a bit of a mixed bag, I think. I've done a ton of reading, but I haven't spent the time I'd like on my writing. Reading My plan last week was to be reading from Ursula LeGuin's Planet of Exile and Walter Burket's Greek Religion. I've done a lot of reading this … Continue reading Weekly Update – 4/11/18
Hello, Internet! Sometimes a book, TV show, or series of films enters my life. Occasionally it's expected (or half-expected). More often, it's a pleasant surprise. In any case, it almost always derails what I had in mind for my immediate future. Such was this week. Reading This week, I spent much of my time reading The … Continue reading Weekly Update – 4/4/18
