What I'm Reading

It's been a couple years since I did my last book review, but felt it was time to restart. This time around it will be a bit more eclectic as many of the books will be what's currently on a shelf (physical or digital).

Oftentimes, it will be a mixture of fiction and non-fiction. Some of them are research for novels, some are what I'm currently using for languages, and still others are ways I'm expanding my arts.

First up: Theater of the Mind by Neil Verma.

(side note: if  you click the book link, I receive a small stipend as an associate).

I bought this book earlier this year because I wanted to learn more about audio or radio dramas. The terms are used fairly interchangeably, but audio is becoming more common only because many of the dramas are on podcasts, not radio.

This is not a book about how to write audio dramas, as it's focus is radio dramas. Verma researched the history of radio dramas from the earliest known dramas up through the 1950s.

The book is divided…

NaNoWriMo 2017

I'm writing this to give everyone a little warning - November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), and I'm participating in it again this year. That being said, the updates for Mederei's storyline might be delayed once or twice.

Mederei's story is progressing quickly, and I'm working on the next steps to begin publishing again. Often times, I feel like it's the picture above - so many paths to take, but at the same point, all of them take work.

Still, working on NaNoWriMo provides the opportunity to work on a novel I've been wanting to write. It's set in Seoul in the not-to-distant future, but follows an alternate timeline. It's a cyberpunk, with a slightly Utopian world as well. In other words, if a character has money or power, they live in a fairly Utopian world, whereas everyone else doesn't.

I've been wanting to write more stories set here in Korea, and this provides a great chance. I'll post a couple chapters in December as…

Chapter Thirteen - Grotto God

This past week was my birthday. I had a wonderful time hanging out with friends, and playing with yarn another friend had sent me. It's when I play with yarn, whether by knitting or weaving, that I feel the most like one of the Gwion. I hope you have enjoyed the chapters. Post comments down below telling me what you think. 

Outside, the prince had gathered a small entourage and all had gone down to enjoy the beach. "He's staying at the castle," a passing girl gushed. "Someone said he's wooing the daughter. Oh. my. word. I'd die if he'd show up at my place." "I'd almost pay to see him show up at Uncle Cynwal's place," Caradoc said. "You have an evil streak," Hugh grumbled. "Mischievous. Just because I don't like him on matter of principle, doesn't mean I wouldn't mind seeing Mederei kick his sorry arse. I can't at any rate without resorting to violence; Mederei could, and no one would be the wiser, bu…
