Though I want to talk about the book I read, how I came across it was interesting as well. Earlier this year Levar Burton Reads launched on Stitcher. Everyone who was a kid in the 80's should get a twinge of nostalgia at Levar Burton reading to them, but this show is aimed at adults. Levar Burton reads a short story usually by a well-known author and gives it an excellent audiobook treatment. That was where I heard the story, What it Means When A Man Falls From the Sky by Lesley Nneka Arimah.
Nanowrimo is one of the most prominent writing mountains I haven't climbed. I always wanted to be a writer, but since doing it semi-professionally, I all but stopped writing fiction. I pick and play with ideas here and there, which is why I think that the endurance slog is probably the only way that I will force myself to write a novel.
I have some ideas for essays kicking around, but I managed to get much reading done on vacation recently, so I wanted to do a quick media dump. I also went back to Breath of the Wild recently, digging into the new side quests, thankful that I was not pulled back into compulsively playing the game.
I missed July, but this wasn't done. So hopefully I can get my average back and do two of these in August. We're doing yet another media dump. I need to find a new platform for this site as Typed.com is going away in the next year. I'm hoping to export the existing content and to lift it into place somewhere else.
Nothing like remembering that you at least want to update your stupid blog once a month at 10:30 on the last day of said month. I again have been trying to write about politics, but it just turns into repeatedly typing fuck it closing the window.
