“Can I…?” Yes, and you SHOULD.

I’m following the various subreddits, like r/writing or r/writers, among others, and I’m on several writing discords, such as “Tokyo Fantasy Writers”, “/r/WritingHub” or “Indie Writers Ascending”, and what I’ve seen a lot these days are “can I write about” questions. There is a nice podcast by Sanderson about “writing the other”, be it the…

OMG, AI will kill writing! (clickbait title)

I lately looked more into AI, after stumbling over the debate on whether it can and will replace humans as creators in the future, or even now. While there is a difference between images, music and writing, what we all have in common is that our craft belongs in the domain of creativity, a trait…

Project Status

I thought I’d start the new year with a status report of my current projects and some thoughts on what to do in which order. Since my writing projects aren’t all that numerous, this will be a pretty short posting, but I think it’ll be interesting to do it now, and look back at this…

Looking back at ’22

Hello everybody, long time no see. 2022 is almost over, and I’d like to take some time to look back at what I got done and what I plan to do next year. So I wrote, edited and published Synthesis. This was a big one, pretty long (and pretty good, if I may say so…

No Update This Saturday

Hello! I won’t post a new Pendulum scene today. Work was more time consuming than expected, and I need some sleep. I’ll get it ready over the week. Thankfully, I have some time off after this coming week, and can focus on writing again. Sorry for this. It’ll come soon, I promise.

Pendulum Ch. 34: Battlefield

Corporal Hill’s condition declined again. Up and down, back and forth, he descended to the gates of death, only to bounce back. Not he himself, of course. The medibot swarm destroyed a culture here, only to be overrun in another place, and the human body couldn’t withstand an unlimited supply of bots in its bloodstream.…

Pendulum Ch. 33: Another One

What was his name again? Achim called up the team members’ roster and scrolled through the list of unpronounceable strings. Rodaidh O’Beirnei. Another tongue breaker from their Aes Sidhe partners, and, from his last name, a lurikeen. He gave the impulse to open the file, and it disappeared before his eyes. Achim stopped short. An…

Pendulum Ch. 32: Analysis

ITS network was abuzz with traffic. Information packets streamed in, passed connection knots, went through checks for data integrity and redundancy and made it to bigger hubs, where restructuring took place. Over time, it integrated more and more packages, and a picture formed, like a newly formed fledgling outgrowth, connection by connection.IT had erred.The motiles…

Pendulum Ch. 31: The River

The river lay right in front of their small vehicle. Only one of Gliese’s suns was still on the horizon, and the residual light caused fiery reflections on the surface, a million red and orange flames flickering in and out of existence on the black water. The current the Wisp’s instruments had measured were not…

Pendulum Ch. 30 Delay / Announcement

You might have noticed that I was a bit late with the last chapter of Pendulum, and there is a slightly embarrassing reason for this. I’m just finishing my fast while I’m writing this. It’s day 10, and I’ve been living off of coffee and water, and some supplements. Nothing else. While I’m physically fine,…
