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
Hello, Internet! This week's gone well, I feel. I'm almost done with my current course towards my MFA (a class on reading and writing poetry), and looking forward to my next class: fiction! About time. Just two more weeks left, and one of those set aside for revising a poem for our final. Reading This … Continue reading Weekly Update – 1/25/18
Hello, Internet! How was your week? It was good? Good! (I'm going to assume it was good, because I can't hear you. Speak up.) Mine was okay. The bad news is that I didn't hit my writing goal - but the good news is that I do still feel that this week has been productive! … Continue reading Weekly Update – 1/17/18
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.

Reading So Oathbringer dropped last week, and as anyone reading me often probably knows, I'm a HUGE Sanderson fanboy. His Mistborn novels are some … Continue reading Weekly Update – 11/22/17
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
Milo Yiannopolis is an egotistical asshole – but an entertaining one. A self-proclaimed “internet supervillain,” Milo is most (in)famous for catchy, offensive slogans such as “Feminism is Cancer” or the headline of his recent college series, “The Dangerous Faggot Tour.” Now, Milo has entered the world of self-publishing with his first book, Dangerous. Unfortunately, I … Continue reading Review – Dangerous (2017)
The Immortal Throne is the strong and satisfying sequel to The City (2013) which substantially improves upon the original, adding greater depth and answering many questions and loose threads left behind at the end of previous book. Together, the two books contain a broad and sweeping narrative telling the tale of the City and the Serafim, its otherworldly overlords. 8/10.
