Writing Update #18

Well, first things first: [TT] has an official working title now! So from here on out I’ll be referring to it as [SOPAB]. And no, I’m not going to explain what it stands for 😉 I whittled my list of 16 possible titles down to six, after which I asked some people to choose which ones would entice them in a bookstore, and gave them a quick rundown of the major themes of the story. There was no clear favourite, but their feedback helped me choose the one I’ve gone with.

The Black Lung Captain is the second novel in the Tales of the Ketty Jay series by Chris Wooding. I raced through this one in a day and a half, so that’s an indication of how much I liked it.

Frey thinks it’s dangerous, and too good to be true. But what’s a broke captain to do?  Continue reading

Review: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine

I’m just going to come out and say it: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is my favourite game of all the games I’ve played so far since I got my PS4. I have the strange penchant to start with the third installment of game series (God of War, Diablo, Dragon Age), and this time it was no different. I never played the previous games, but I owned The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski, and I read that immediately after starting up the game. I bought this game at the end of 2015, beginning of 2016, and though I finished the main quest of Wild Hunt somewhere in 2017, it wasn’t until yesterday that I finished the last of the two DLC.
