Welcome to Now.

These are my current projects and updates pertaining to them.

October 2017: Rice & Salt, Blade Runner, NaNoWriMo

1.) Every chapter of Kim Stanley Robinson's The Years Of Rice And Salt ends the same way: with me quietly weeping. I'm not even halfway through it tho cause it contains a lot of unfamiliar material.

2.) Blade Runner 2049 is a wonderful movie with some very troubling problems, much like the original.

3.) I can't tell if I'm preparing materials that will genuinely help me move through NaNoWriMo with ease, or if I'm just discharging creative energy that I should be storing up. I figure the more dead ends I encounter ahead of time the fewer I will have to clean up in the draft. I'm doing up dossiers on characters, locations and magical systems, and am trying to feel out the story itself. I'm also getting better at creating libre office templates.

September 2017: Book Of The Month + Patreon Report + Indie Author Rec

1.) I'm taking a break from Illuminatus to read K. S. Robinson's The Years Of Rice And Salt.

2.) My Patreon has two supporters already and I am working on a super secret digital zine for them! If you join before the end of the month you too will receive it.

3.) I am helping/observing a creator I met on Ello.co prepare for a book launch this month. Check them out here: tablo.io/t-van-santana

Personally, I'm feeling good about the routine I've got going. I think of my day job as just sort of a way to get out of the house and drink tea and sass old people and network with young people. Good luck out there; be kind and pay attention and, if all else fails, observe formalities.
