Weekly Update – 4/11/18

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

Weekly Update – 4/4/18

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

Weekly Update – 3/28/18

Hello, Internet! This week's been fairly successful, I'd like to think. Not a lot of reading done, but plenty of writing. Turns out games can be work, too! Reading This past week, I've continued to spend time reading from my anthology of Ursula LeGuin's science fiction novels. I'm still chipping away at Planet of Exile, the … Continue reading Weekly Update – 3/28/18

Weekly Update – 2/28/18

Hello, Internet! I'm gonna go ahead and rate this past week as an O.K. I got things done, but didn't get a lot of things done. At the same time progress is progress, and while I'm not satisfied, I'm not upset with the last week's work either. Reading This past week I've been re-reading The Hobbit. In … Continue reading Weekly Update – 2/28/18

Weekly Update – 2/14/18

Hello, Internet! This week's been okay. I've made decent progress on my goals from last week, and in addition I've been working on a large map of the storyworld Jiharel is set in, Akhelas. (That name may look a bit familiar...) While I don't think I'm a skilled enough artist to make visual content for publication, I … Continue reading Weekly Update – 2/14/18

Weekly Update – 2/7/18

Hello, Internet! I'm gonna go ahead and call this past week an "almost" week. That's how it feels, for most of my goals set in my last post. That's not particularly disappointing for me. A new class started this week for my MFA, and I'm adjusting to the change in workload. My last class, a seminar … Continue reading Weekly Update – 2/7/18

Weekly Update – 1/10/18

Hello Internet! New year, same me. I've given it a whole 30 seconds of thought (lavish, eh?) and decided that YES I do still enjoy doing these posts this way, so welcome to another year of me blathering words onto a screen and then screaming them out into the Void. As usual, I'll be blabbering … Continue reading Weekly Update – 1/10/18

Weekly Update – 12/21/17

Hello, Internet! A new week, a new post. Life moves on, and on, and on. Next week I'll be on vacation for the holiday season, so I may or may not post. I'll decide sometime next week. In either case, I'm currently planning to do some sort of larger End of 2017/Start of 2018 post … Continue reading Weekly Update – 12/21/17

Weekly Update – 12/14/17

Hello, Internet! This week's been better. Last week felt sluggish, felt like I wasn't getting things done. There's still improvement to be made on that front - but when isn't there? Still, I'm glad to say that I feel this week has been an improvement. Reading I spent most of this week finishing reading The Dragonbone … Continue reading Weekly Update – 12/14/17
