Harmonic Waves Retrospection (+ Recording!)

🗓 12 Jun 2017

Here I am again with the recordings! This is the second of my additions to the novels. How to Stop Wildfire it felt natural to have a preface to explain the journey to it and explain it. With Harmonic Waves, my thoughts lingered on the content and what it meant rather than the journey so I chose to do a retrospection that is at the end of the novel. There are some spoilers within which is all the more reason it needs to be read following the book itself. Read...or listened to. Yep. I recorded myself again. Enjoy!

The Recordings

🗓 09 Jan 2017

My day-job is software development and as part of my rite-of-passage to attain that position I had to start a programming blog and write posts about it. For awhile I wrote plain posts doing just that. Vaguely snarky things just going over what I had learned and all that dull jazz. Then I read a series of programming posts called the The Craftsman Articles. I was inspired, which is never a good thing. A devious idea came to my Neraq (mind) that was rather insane but totally me.

Other crazy stuff happens along the way and it gets derailed as usual, but there is code there! Some nuggets of actual wisdom! Personal experiences in the land of software woven into a sci-fi/fantasy/comedy narrative. The result was...

Confessions of a Shapeshifter: Short Story on Shapeshifting

🗓 05 Jul 2015

I was inspired and wrote a first person POV short story set in the same universe as How to Stop Wildfire. Asides from the universe there is not much connecting it. It is basically a monologue from a Shafien. You can read it on Medium or download it here. It is not much but I had fun writing it. The first-person was interesting for me because I usually do not write in it. And the character was someone wholly new I made up. Someone who read it felt like it was an allegory for modern identity-crises, such as gender/sexual identification in a LGBTQI angle and coming into one's self. Acceptance and all that. I don't know if I meant to do that, but I see how it can be interpreted as such. Work takes a life of its own. Anyway, back to writing book two, which is most definitely going...

Short Collection of Thoughts and Stories

🗓 12 May 2015

I used to run a blog where I posted random short stories on dreams and the mind. I ran out of time to update it consistently, so I am turning all the posts into a short collection that I am going to offer for free. Right now I am just editing it and cleaning it up. Estimating it to be ready and done within a week to two weeks.
