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 – 3/21/18

Hello, Internet! It has been a week. That is accurate. Reading This past week, I finished re-reading Tolkien's The Hobbit, and I've begun the next book in my anthology of Ursula LeGuin's science fiction, Planet of Exile. I'm not sure I have any new and thrilling insights about The Hobbit this week. The only thing which particularly stuck … Continue reading Weekly Update – 3/21/18

Weekly Update – 3/14/18

Hello, Internet! Sorry for the skip last week. I work nights and have a fair amount of unstructured time, so I usually write. However, last week work (and life) caught up on me a bit. Many apologies! While I still didn't meet my goals from two weeks ago, I have continued to chip away at my … Continue reading Weekly Update – 3/14/18

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 – 2/21/18

Hello, Internet! This last week has been productive, and it feels good. I'm just gonna jump right into it. Reading Last week, my reading goal was to finish the first portion of Ursula LeGuin's novel Rocannon's World, "Starlord." I ended up finishing the whole thing. Like a lot of LeGuin's work (and unlike a lot of … Continue reading Weekly Update – 2/21/18

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
