In other news, I'm on chapter 24 of my novel, and I'm aiming for about 30 total chapters. So the first draft will be done soon, and after a round of editing I'll be looking for beta readers. I'll post more on that soon, but get in touch with me if you'd like to help -- I'm looking for people who have opinions about things. If you do some honest self-analysis and find that you genuinely don't have opinions, this is probably a serious medical condition and you should be evaluated by your physician.

Otherwise, the month of June has been spent finally tackling Latin, which has been a long-standing interest of mine. Last Christmas, my girlfriend bought me an immersion-style coursebook written entirely in Latin that I've begun to steadily work through. Also, failing to avoid heated facebook arguments has become a favored pastime of mine in the month of June (not that it ever wasn't). I've become quite addicted to reading facebook and article comments, especially when the subject matter is controversial. The level to which people can be unreasonable is fascinating.
|My sincerely held beliefs require me to write exclusively in cursive Latin from now on.|
Tonight I'm traveling to PA to be with family for the holiday weekend. I hope everyone's 4th of July is filled with an abundance of fun. Until next time.
