What’s got you excited right now? I’m looking for good blog post ideas, so if you’ve got some, go ahead and reply with them! I’m hoping to launch a topic request form on my site soon; I’ll let you know when that goes live.
New Blog Post: Butterfly Prophecies
I’ve been thinking a bunch about prophecies and a story I wrote a little while ago included them, so I thought I’d put together a short article with various thoughts on prophecies and the butterfly effect. Enjoy!
Back in November, I was experimenting with embedded narrative in a novel I was drafting. I mostly did it to fill up some space when I wasn’t sure where I wanted the story to go, but I ended up with some insights I found fascinating.
Not much new this week; I’ve been working on refining my current website and making it more accessible and functional. If you find any issues on my site, please do let me know! I’m trying to get as many as possible resolved right now so I don’t have to worry about them later.
I feel like I’ve given enough space news in the last few weeks (though you should check out the Perseverance footage, it’s awesome!) so instead, I thought I’d list a few fun things to take a look at this week:
William Safire’s Apollo 11 Backup Speech – Did you know that William Safire (Nixon’s speechwriter) wrote a backup speech in case the Lunar Module had a disaster? It wasn’t released to the public until 30 years later in 1999, but you can now find it on the internet. It’s hilarious, check it out (and a very well-written speech)
Learn to Code – If you don’t know how to code already, it’s an extremely useful skill to learn and not hard to pick up. I’d check out free courses like Codecademy, w3schools, and code.org if you’re interested. Let me know if you make something cool!
Green-Purple Inverse – I coded a neat little thingy myself this week; it’s a demo of a circle that changes color to be the opposite of whatever’s behind it. Check it out, it looks pretty cool!
