Kind's Kiss finally has a cover...

I finally settled on a cover and a pen name. So now both my writing related websites are up-to-date. Unfortunately I haven't released the story yet...

Well, I have to start somewhere ๐Ÿ˜‡

Photon (1997)

Review.

You'd be tempted to think I watch loads of anime... but I don't. These are old reviews I wrote over the years, most for Dapper. I promised to post something every Monday, and I have been a bit busy, work wise, so here's another review of something old.

Photon then... Six episodes... Drawing style is somewhat childish, plot is somewhat illogical, purpose is somewhat undefined, it's all somewhat... vague.

Typewriters... (re)live the experience!

Writing. Column.

Do you remember good ol' typewriters? Man, the horror! ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

I don't think there's anyone who has good memories about typewriters. I'm certainly not one of them.

Xara / Magix Designer Pro - Love it or hate it?

The Xara Designer Pro software package is quite nice, and capable of incredible things. It never got the traction it deserved, and has been picked up and then abandoned, more or less, again and again.

Book and chapter sizes

Writing.

The optimal chapter size is driven by your audience and publication platform. Which means you either have to adjust your chapter size to the target, re-chapter before publication, or simply don't give a damn ๐Ÿ˜

Ranma 1/2 (199x)

Review.

Revisiting the past... ever heard of Ranma 1/2? Boy meets girl, which appears to be just another fiancรฉe. Credits to daddy. Girl meets boy. But boy is, sometimes, a girl.

Don't go and look for anything politically correct, or any LGBTQ+ sensitivity. This dates back to the early nineties, and is slapstick anime comedy, aimed at younger teens.

Wallpaper - Beach

We had -17ยบ degrees a few days ago... as in one real week of winter. I wonder if we'll ever see it again with all that global warming...

Nevertheless, it was warm inside, and I couldn't help myself from thinking about warmer weather, and walking on the beach...
