This will be a pretty short post, because I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m working on a couple of things for this blog. I don’t have all the details yet, but I’d like to switch up my content for a bit.
I’m running out of rant topics, because I’ve sort of reached critical mass of preaching about writing, at least as a sole topic for blog posts. It’s exhausting, and every time I try to write something, I find I’m just repeating myself.
I was looking back through old blog posts, and I realised that I used to do a lot more storytelling on this blog, and one of my most popular posts was that old Treasure Planet rant I posted a while back. So I’m working on branching out, or rather, branching back.
I’ll still post writing rants here, because I do still like that soap box, and I probably always will. I am going back to university for my Master’s degree in a month or so, and I’m hoping that getting back into academia will refresh me on some more interesting topics than “commas amirite?”
But I’m adding a couple of longer projects to the mix now – first, a series called Anatomy Lessons, where I’ll talk about dissecting stories and analysing literature by example. I’ll spend a few posts on each example, coming at each text from two or three different angles, and I’ll be focussing on genre fiction. I’ll try and do a variety of media – books, TV shows, movies and video games, though I’ll do more standalone work than series work, just because of the volume of content I’ll be working with.
The second is a purely creative project – a serial story that I’m not revealing anything about just yet. Further announcements to be made closer to release.
So that was a quick update on what I’m doing over the next little while. Watch this space if any of that sounds in the least interesting, I suppose. But for the meanwhile, the soap box will see a little more use.
