Through luck and a little bit of misfortune, I spent over 10.716667 hours editing the second draft of A Story About Self-Confidence: What’s In A Name?, a month~long story at Eville Medical in the Sammohini Arc of “The Story.” That excludes the 2.2667 hours of continuity editing and 3.4167 hours on the final day re-reading, editing, and commenting as much as I could until fatigue prevented me from going further and I’d love to do that more often.

[2019 Novel] Emptiness Without Fiction?

Now that my first novel, A Story About Self-Confidence: What’s In A Name?, a month~long story at Eville Medical in the Sammohini Arc of “The Story,” is done, everything feels quieter.

[2019 Novel] If You’re Fired?

There might have been the subtlest change from Chapter 9 forward. I thought I was going to be fired from my job for a reason I could not know: anonymous complaint. What was the complaint? They …didn’t know. It was broad enough of a behavioral concern, but specific enough toward me, that it was like being told I was being fired. That stress loomed over me. I dug deeper into writing. If anything could save me…
