Gosh, still can’t believe we’re firmly in the second half of the year. It’s been a rough couple weeks personally, though it’s reminded me of just how important it is to focus on the people and things that fulfill you. Fiction from others I’m not sure if this has been a subconscious thing, but latelyContinue reading “Intermittent findings #03”
Hope everyone’s doing well, especially with the intense weather all over the world lately. In any case, it looks like these “findings” will be a monthly affair. Be safe, wherever you are! Fiction from others I was first introduced to the manga “Maiko-san Chi no Makanai-san” or “Kiyo in Kyoto” through the anime on NHKContinue reading “Intermittent findings #02”
Introduction Hi everyone, it’s turtle551 and I’m so excited that you’re here reading our guide for “Return to the Dark Forest.” Being of Red Rider lineage, I was really curious about “Return to the Dark Forest” when it was announced. Okay, maybe more worried than curious, considering how special T.D. Group’s “Beyond the Mists ofContinue reading “A Red Rider’s guide to a Red Riders game: Return to the Dark Forest”
Trying something new! At a cadence to be figured out as we go, I’d like to try sharing some things I’ve found inspiring, helpful, or otherwise cool in the last couple of days. I’ll try to keep things related to SF&F fiction and writing in general. Fiction from others I’m subscribed to Lightspeed and severalContinue reading “Intermittent findings #01”
All right readers, I’ve been just as excited as all of you about the expansion into the Jade Emperor’s territory, and I finally was able to try the new save point at Jade Flute Gate. Not only was it rumored to have one of the most expansive save facilities (200 free slots??!) but also –Continue reading “Jade Flute Gate: A Save Point Review”
The intent behind Map || Memories was to explore how to integrate map and story into something new. I grew up on those epic fantasy novels where there was almost always a world map in the first few pages, but they always were just a supplement (later I would play fantasy games where the worldContinue reading “Lessons Learned: Map || Memories”
The map was not written in a hand I recognized, nor was the paper of a familiar weight or quality. But my fingers had known which corners to untuck, which folds to undo, unraveling the tightly bound packet into a roughly flat surface now on my lap. The hallway was quiet of nurses and patients,Continue reading “Map || Memories”
I’ve written before about the close relationship between kishoutenketsu and music, and wanted to share this video of the amazingly talented Jacob Collier explaining the concept of harmony to five different people, each time in an increasing level of complexity. (Side note 1: Jacob does a wonderful job explaining in not only this video, butContinue reading “Kishoutenketsu Parallels in Music”
On the whole, I had a lot of fun with this piece, which ended up being more personal than I thought it would be. Part of it was because I mined both personal material (ex. Old textbooks, assignments, emails the two times I got bachelors degrees) and existing writing – namely my 2018 project. PartContinue reading “Commentary and Lessons Learned: Snapshot of a desk space by the window”
A short story by JYB A textbook on the lower left hand corner. Fairly worn, the edges of the top right corner curled upwards from use. Several bookmarks are tucked into different sections with alphanumeric codes handwritten along the top edge so they peek out just so. On the inside cover is a note tapedContinue reading “Snapshot of a desk space by the window”
