To the right is a photo of what I am calling my “power cave.” It
is all mine. No gym closure can interfere with my training regimen now.
It took me a few weeks to find the space and set everything up, but now
that the problem of maintaining adequate physical activity is resolved,
I have the capacity once more to turn my attention to writing.
My most recent blog disruption is indicative of a bigger disruption in my life,
which I’ll go into more detail about on Monday. That disruption also
caused me to lose some momentum on the backmatter for the new edition of
Voyage Embarkation, but I’m going at it again now, and I think I will
still have it ready for the December 18 release date. I might perhaps
have to push that back a week, but it should be able to stay inside the
month of December. Insomnium’s new edition is ready to go for its
launch one week from today.
There is so much backed up for my blog that instead of doing the summary
on Monday, I’m doing it today, so that all five days next week can be
devoted to more substantive posts.
Monday: Our Current Dilemma, an essay about my recent trials
surrounding gyms and keeping myself and others healthy amidst the
Tuesday: A Carnival of Ideas, some thoughts on the first season of
Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek as a franchise.
Wednesday: The Creation Cycle, an essay on when to pay attention
to what in order to develop one’s skills as a writer.
Thursday: The Typography of Transmutations, my thoughts on the
layout I designed for the 2020 edition of my short story collection.
Friday: A New Edition of Insomnium, some brief thoughts on my
second novel to commemorate the release of its newest edition.
