Continuing the way I did it in September, this post will be a summary of my October travels with several photos.
Monthly Archives: October 2018
Daylight savings rant
After a while, I am making a post unrelated to books or hiking. Today, it is the transition from CEST back to CET in EU and, with it, the extremely annoying and no-good necessity to adjust my watches.
Storytelling: hindering the hero
Roughly a month ago, I wrote about the positive traits of antagonists. Today, I am taking it from the other side: how a hero’s traits can slow him/her down from a potentially invincible problem-solver to a relatable character.Continue reading
10/2018 Writing update
It’s time for another monthly update on my writing progress. Even though it might not feel so for me at first glance, there was actually some.
Book review: Resist by M. Van
In April, I first ventured into the waters (more like open space, huh?) of self-published Sci-Fi by reading M. Van’s Recall (review). Now, half a year later, I noticed the second book came out recently and went for it. This review will probably be quite short, as is the book.
Hiking: Look back at September, part two
This post will cover the four-day stay in Slovakia from the end of the month, with a lot of photos.
Going into mountains reaching 1600-2100m ASL in late September is tricky. Weather can go full summer or full winter on you. In my case, it did both. I was prepared for the cold part but less so for the warm part – my summer gear was already deep in the closet and I took thicker socks.
Writing: what to expect from my story
Greetings everyone. Today, I’ll give a few more hints on what you can (or can’t) expect to see in my work-in-progress fantasy trilogy. Spoiler-free, of course. I am really careful about that.
Book Review: Jurrasic Park
This is a read that was in the queue for a while – I bought it on sale around the release of the newest movie. Yet, it was something I was considering reading so I went for it.
Sci-fi thoughts: From human to cyborg
While I am mostly reading fantasy, I read a bit of Sci-Fi here and there and watch Sci-Fi movies more (lasers and explosions, yay!). So, here comes a Sci-Fi post inspired by a discussion on Goodreads about when one stops being human and starts being a cyborg.
Hiking: Look back at September, part one
Before I get back to reading/writing-related posts, I hinted that I wanted to show a bit of where I was in September. In this first part, I’ll share a bit about two hikes with the four-day stay I had at the month’s end coming in a separate post soon.
