We’re halfway through February. By my count, this puts me eleven months into this odd pseudo-lockdown that New York’s been in as a result of the global pandemic. I saw pseudo-lockdown because indoor dining opened yesterday (again) even though the infection rate has held steady in the city at around 7-8% for the past few… Continue reading What’s Up?
After Wednesday’s attack on the US Capitol, I've seen lot of people saying that this isn’t really America, "this isn’t who we are." The thing is, the images and news you see coming out of it are nothing new. It’s the culmination of years of unspoken truths. People stormed the Capitol and among their flags… Continue reading This Is America
46,109 words. Which means only 3,891 to go before Tuesday. Certainly doable. Just gotta actually do it, work days or not. With my goal of writing around 2,000 words a day (a goal that I normally don't meat, else I'd be well over 50k words by now), I'm finding just how quickly plot can move.… Continue reading Closing In
Despite the nebulous passage of time that has marked much of this year, it continues to be November, and I continue to be writing. I'm sitting right around 34,000 words, which isn't that far from par and 'only' 16,000 to go. Not bad! And I think I've figured out my final act in a very… Continue reading Still Writing
Hey, it's November. Once again, I am, for some reason unknown to me, trying to write 50,000 words in one month. If you're curious, it's a continuation of what I was writing last year, and I think I just might be able to bring it all to a conclusion. I'm just trying to figure out… Continue reading Here We Go Again
Finally. Let out that breath. Enjoy the weekend. Rest deep. Get ready to continue the fight. But for now, celebrate, dare to hope again.
I like having goals in my video games, something to work towards. Something that once I’m done, I’m done. Once upon a time that was catching all 150 Pokémon, every now and then it’s a matter of reaching that sweet sweet 100% completion. More recently, it’s taken the shape of getting that elusive Platinum Trophy.… Continue reading Goals
I like books. I mean, I like reading. But I also like books. The two kinda go hand-in-hand for me, someone who’s considered getting an e-reader, but decided not to because he likes writing in his books too much. The pandemic has given me a deal of time to read, which is really fortunate since… Continue reading Just Browsing
I remember when the biggest problem on Facebook was an overabundance of FarmVille invites and not widespread propaganda and competing political views. Oh, I’m sure the latter was there even in the early days, but certainly not as pronounced as it is now. A scroll through my newsfeed is almost dominated by folks sharing something… Continue reading Social Network
It’s kinda odd to think that we’re still in the middle of a global pandemic. I’ve been called back into work a couple times a week, and there’s a bit more life out there (I’m no longer getting Death Stranding vibes when I go outside), and it sometimes looks like things are going back to… Continue reading Checking In
