But I suspect that has a lot to do with how I approach writing; with any given project I'll work on half a dozen paragraphs at once, and I generally have that many or more projects on the go at the same time. That way if I'm struggling with one section I can easily move to another and then come back to it later with fresh eyes. Similarly if I get bogged down with a particular story or novel I'll switch to something else; then coming back to it seems to act as a kind of mental reset switch. Of course, not everyone has the time to work that way, but I'd definitely argue against writing linearly. Having a few different points of contact on a story goes a long way towards keeping your brain unblocked.

I love that I get to be a part of that tradition, and that just conceivably someone might come across my own work in that way one day and be similarly affected by it.(less)

Drowning in Nineties Anime, Pt. 101

It's fair to say that not everything has gone to plan with this review series, which is one reason why we're up to a hundred and one goddamn posts and counting.  But it's also fair to say that nothing has gone quite so horribly wrong as with this post.  And it's all the fault of Dragon Ball Z!  Because, you see, the one unbreakable rule around these parts is that posts consist of four reviews apie
