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

The End of the Year Post

Hello, Internet! We've collectively completed yet another trip 'round the big glowy blob, which means that once again I have acquired the obligation to babble about the voyage. The last few weeks have been a little bit of a journey in their own right - driving 350 miles south, then flying about a thousand out … Continue reading The End of the Year Post

Reading I've not had an enormous amount of reading time this week - at least, freely-chosen reading time. I spent some time with Plutarch and Thucydides while wrapping up the article for my Master's, … Continue reading Weekly Update – 11/29/17

The Power of Ten Thousand Words

It is November 7th, 2017. One year and six days ago, I started writing the first draft of my very first novel, The Rule of Iron. I'd dabbled in writing fiction before, but nothing substantial. Nothing significant enough for me to say "I'm a person who writes!" I'm sitting in the same black chair I sat … Continue reading The Power of Ten Thousand Words
