Weekly Update – 9/21/17

Hello, Internet! I've got about twenty minutes to tap this out, so I'm going to try being quick and brief (like that's gonna happen, right?). Here we go! Reading As promised, I continued to procrastinate this week in reading Schlock Mercenary. I've caught up with the comic's archive, and by and large it's been a fun, weird … Continue reading Weekly Update – 9/21/17

Weekly Update – 9/6/17

Hello, Internet! Been a very read-ey week. Spent most of it plowing through the Codex Alera by Jim Butcher, and I'm going to be selfish and just try to speed through this post so I can get back to finishing the last book. Reading As just mentioned, I've been plowing through the Codex Alera. I'm inclined to … Continue reading Weekly Update – 9/6/17

Weekly Update – 8/30/17

Hello, Internet! My week's been swell. Got an absolute boatload of reading done (some of it not exactly on purpose), so it's obviously been a good time. I managed to get through both of my goals from last week - although they weren't particularly strenuous - and I heard back and was accepted to an … Continue reading Weekly Update – 8/30/17

Weekly Update – 8/23/17

Hello, Internet! I feel I've been middlingly productive this week. I've been delayed or distracted by some outside factors (such as applying for online courses, and a friend visiting from out of town), but I'm still pleased with the work I've done. So, haven't been super productive on my writing, but I think that some … Continue reading Weekly Update – 8/23/17

Weekly Update – 7/5/17

Hello, Internet! I'm gonna try something of a different format this week. Use headings and things, see if I can organize this as opposed to my usual word-vomit. Writing Week's gone alright, I feel. I spent a few hours typing up "How the Thrun Earned His Wings" and sent a couple copies off to interested … Continue reading Weekly Update – 7/5/17

Weekly Update – 5/24/17

Hello, Internet! I'm actually on time this week. Like, really on time. Like, on Wednesday as I've intended. Weird, eh? Feels good. That being said, I've honestly not been terribly productive this week. It is what it is, but I wish I had gotten more done. Entirely my fault - I'm easily distracted by video … Continue reading Weekly Update – 5/24/17

Weekly Update – 4/19/17

Hello, Internet! First off, I'd like to apologize for not getting an update up last week. Not too sure what happened - it just slipped my mind. I'm not sure there was anything particularly exciting going on, but nonetheless. My apologies. Spent a bunch of time working on research and architecture-ing these last few weeks. … Continue reading Weekly Update – 4/19/17

Review – The Shadow of What Was Lost (2016 Edition)

James Islington's debut novel, The Shadow of What Was Lost, begins as a deceptively stereotypical coming-of-age fantasy. However, it doesn't take long for the story to develop, and breathe fresh life into well-used tropes of the genre. Even with a slightly unsatisfying climax, I deeply enjoyed this book as a whole. It's a good fantasy, and a great adventure. 8/10.
