The way 2021 went did not correspond to what I actually set down as goals at the beginning of the year. I knew it would be a strange year, especially after I returned to hybrid work in August after working exclusively from home since lockdown started in March 2020.

Acts of Speech is now out and in the wild in e-format. The print is a bit delayed due to the pandemic, although I now have a UPS tracking number for proofs, which is a serious improvement over my previous lack of knowledge regarding where the print version was in the printing process. Tracking numbers … Continue reading Acts of Speech Is Out

This is legit happening, so while I usually spend time here offering practical advice about shrine … Continue reading Poetry Project Updates

Proclus is commenting on that part of the Parmenides (at 128d) where Zeno describes how awkward it was to go viral with a philosophical thing he wrote as a young man — someone stole a copy of … Continue reading What Does One Transmit?
I don't usually share things from my other blog, but anyone who is interested in mythology and worldbuilding may find this post fun — it's about gods of writing systems, conlangs, and scripts. About 1,000 words in total with lots of pictures. Over the past few months, I’ve been doodling sentences in Narahji while working … Continue reading Conlang Writing Systems: Narahji — Pangrammatike
