Weekly Update – 10/19/17

Hello, Internet! I find I've been somewhat unfocused this week. I've spent a lot more time reading than writing (or researching or pre-writing or whatever else falls under that loose heading). Finding a proper balance between the two is difficult, but necessary. This past summer I wasn't reading much, and my work suffered. This past week … Continue reading Weekly Update – 10/19/17

Weekly Update – 10/11/17

Hello, Internet! Books books books, books books. I'm going to talk about books. Reading I finished my re-read of The Way of Kings sometime on Monday, and I've started re-reading Words of Radiance in preparation for when Oathbringer drops in November. Considering The Way of Kings is about a thousand pages, and I'm a few hundred into Words, either I … Continue reading Weekly Update – 10/11/17

Weekly Update – 10/4/17

Hello, Internet! Honestly, I don't have a lot to report this week. I'm easily distracted, and was distracted by game stuff this week. I've been playing in a RuneQuest game now for about a year, year and a half, but I haven't run a tabletop in some time. A few friends have been looking for … Continue reading Weekly Update – 10/4/17

Weekly Update – 9/27/17

Hello, Internet! How's your week been? Good? (I can't hear you, so I'm going to assume good.) Mine's been good too. I finished a short story, and I'm almost finished with the first class of my MFA program. Most of the courses are two months long, but a few are just a month (including this … Continue reading Weekly Update – 9/27/17

Why You Should Try NaNoWriMo

What is NaNoWriMo? NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, which is the name shared by both a nonprofit charity dedicated to writing and literacy as well as the contest they run. The goal is simple: write 50,000 words in the month of November. Okay, maybe it's not that simple. It's a big task, but the … Continue reading Why You Should Try NaNoWriMo

Weekly Update – 8/16/17

Hello, Internet! Less successes this week than last, unfortunately. Sometimes, I'm just too easily distracted by other, less-productive projects. This week, I ended up spending much of my time on some materials for RuneQuest, a game I play with friends every Friday. It's similar to Dungeons & Dragons. There's a bunch of editions of RQ, … Continue reading Weekly Update – 8/16/17

Weekly Update – 7/26/17

Hello, Internet! This week's been pretty productive! In addition to wrapping up & publishing my review of Milo Yiannopolis' Dangerous, I got some good work done on my maps & setting for The Rule of Iron. Well, let's get to it, shall we? Reading I completely blew through Percy Jackson & the Olympians. I think I read the … Continue reading Weekly Update – 7/26/17

Weekly Update – 7/12/17

Hello, Internet! Let's get to it, shall we? Writing I've been... middling productive, this week. I honestly haven't spent much time working on Rule (or any other piece, for that matter), and this upcoming week I'll be out of town for about 4 days, so it's unlikely that I'll be productive. Now, the good news is … Continue reading Weekly Update – 7/12/17
