March 2016 Summary

Writing

Where did March go? I only wrote 3560 words!

Dispossessed is a Battletech short story going through a second draft.

Drone Syndicate is on hold.

I did a little world-building in my post-apocalypse world.

I started another first draft story called Crimson Eyes based on a prompt at a writer’s group I attend.

Reading

I read CTRL ALT REVOLT! by Nick Cole.

I’m reading The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson.

Over spring break I started Dust by Hugh Howey.

I haven’t made much progress in either Stephen King’s On Writing nor Organized Crime in Chicago: Beyond the Mafia by Robert M. Lombardo both of which I had started in January (or earlier).

Film and Television

I’ve been watching The Walking Dead.

I saw Mockingjay, Part 2. Both episodes of Mockingjay seemed rushed, even though they had two episodes to tell the final book. I wish there had been more background involved. I haven’t read the book, so I can’t speak to what was or was not left out.
