What Happened Last Week?

What did happen last week? I didn’t do as much work as I should have, watched a few movies, and wrote a few blog posts. Today, I’m creaky and fatigued, as sometimes occurs.

A Good Thing

The University of Nebraska at Lincoln, my alma mater, won two basketball games. At this point in the season, after losing two starters, beating higher ranked opponents is cause for celebration.

Random Links

There’s been a lot about about AI generated content in my corner of the internet (and most corners of the internet).

  • ChatGPT Is a Blurry JPEG of the Web – I believe this piece by Ted Chiang is mentioned in North’s above Twitter thread, but it’s worth noting again.
  • A Concerning Trend – The editor of Clarkesworld magazine on the trend of junk AI submissions to short story markets.

Writing Check-In

Still haven’t finished my novel. I should do that this week. Maybe. Contemplating a short story based on an open call. No word on outstanding submissions.


Writer, publisher. Hobbies include reading, studying magic & illusions from a historical/theoretical perspective, and playing ultimate frisbee.
