I’ll split this post into two sections noted in the title. Reasons for my hiatus: It has been a while since I last posted on this blog, I know. There’s no denying it. But I have my reasons, and good ones too. Just to give a brief update, in early November my horrifyingly long job […]

Hello to all followers of this blog! I hope you have been doing well. I haven’t been posting too much lately, and that is because I have been quite busy the past few weeks. The blogging, even the writing in general for my various projects, has had to take a back seat to other things […]

Toll the Hounds (Malazan Book of the Fallen #8), by Steven Erikson 3 out of 5 (Liked It) It is said that Hood waits at the end of every plot, every scheme, each grandiose ambition. But this time it is different: this time the Lord of Death is there at the beginning… Darujhistan swelters in the […]

Two parallel stacks of books

I mentioned at the end of my most recent book review that I would be having a go at having two books ‘in progress’ as opposed to the traditional one at a time. I decided to give it a try because I found myself in a less than ideal situation in my regular reading experiences […]

Episode 2: The Scandalous Companion

keep-calm-because-shit-happens

I’ve been searching for a new job since just before the summer, and it has been a terrible experience to say the least. Applying to a few hundred places in a dry economy only to hear back from a handful is nobody’s idea of fun. I’m not stressing out or anything since I’ve never been […]

Part three. Here’s part 1 & part 2. This section of the chapter needs the most work for when I come back to it after the first draft is completed. Thanks for reading! Chapter 21 (first draft) Islos Part 3 of 3 (continued) Cirrus was resting in the shade of the ship’s sails, resting and watching as […]

soldier

Part two! Here was part 1. Again, this is Cirrus (the Soldier POV), having just started his practice match with the Aquari 5th Lieutenant, Arturus Mariner. I’m hoping even though it is just the first draft, that I was able to give somewhat of a clear visualization of how the characters were moving. Thanks for reading! […]
