Expanding Kaiser Lore

One of the most annoying things about fleshing out these World War II inspired factions is that there isn't enough territory in the setting to go around. I mean we've got America, the UK, Germany, France, Japan, etcetera. There are only a handful of habitable worlds,...

Thumbnails Finished

The thumbnails for the Admiral Hipper, Cosmo Messer F2, and the KM-3s missile are finished. A bit rushed but they all look decent enough, especially the F2. Have a look. I also squished the frames a little to give the subjects more screen space. Once again, I think...

Two Books?

by | Jul 21, 2022 | Books, Journal

I mentioned it before but I haven’t been reading Dune everyday and I’m nowhere close to finishing it. Even today has been more of a ‘figure out Fresco’ day. Unless I take two or three days to focus solely on reading, I won’t catch up enough to finish by August. That really only matters because I want to read at least one novel a month, at the very least start a new one each month. Dune doesn’t ready quite like what I’m used to so I’m slower with it on top of everything else.

Either way, I don’t like the idea of speeding through a good story just to meet a deadline. I do this for fun as much as for consistency. So that leaves me with one prevailing thought: two books? That does sound like a bit of a choking hazard, but this 12 books a year goal is completely doable and I don’t want to let it go by the wayside if I can help it. I’d rather just tackle both books at the same time and still round out the year with 12 reads. I can do that; as bogged down as I am I can do that.

Assuming I go this route, I haven’t decided on the next book yet. Probably something shorter. The Legacy of the Force books don’t look that long individually. Spice and Wolf Volume 2 is also an option.

Begin (2024)

2023 ended weirdly abruptly for me, but I got the shot in the arm I needed in order to hit the ground running in 2024. This year's going to be absolutely crazy, but for me personally, I feel my worst years are finally behind me. I'm ready to stop drowning in a sea of...
