The Definitive Landing

My “first” post, and on the purpose of this site.

You want something strange, I’ll give you something weird. This is the second and final iteration of the website. It will get updates I’m sure, but mostly it will be what you see here before you. I have no extensive background with web developing so I chose the easy route for convenience. Jekyll static site generator coupled with the most awesome theme for it I could find. Now a little bit about on some updates regarding myself.

I’ve gotten new energy to write lately, and that has led me to continue my stories, specifically a novelette. I have other book projects brewing as well. I’m also releasing weekly chapters on an on-going science fiction story in WattPad. So there’s certainly no shortage of what to write. Ah, and then there will be my philosophical masterwork. But that will be years in the making, and is still on its planning stage.

I opted for writing the majority of my texts inside Emacs, on the GNU Guix system. Not only for the tremendous nerd-value, but because I like using them for productivity and developing. Also, fucking yay for Org-mode! It lets me plan my schedule with relative ease, and it is no-nonsense pure text writing in its simplicity. I can then export the text files as ODT openoffice documents for LibreOffice for advanced formatting and layouting.

The only downside is when I really get into writing is the fact that my other interests, such as digital painting gets left on the sideslines, but it can’t be helped. Because I also have gaming, and philosophy as my interests. It’s a hard bargain, juggling between everything. I also write poems, some of which you can already find on this site.

Speaking about the site, you’ll notice that it has some pretty nifty things, such as darkmode among others. I’m also going to incorporate commenting on my blog posts in the near future and a newsletter for the latest scoops. But if I was the visitor, I’d rather opt for the RSS feed which I think is sufficient enough. But that’s my own preference.

I think that’s the most relevant points I can think for the time being. I will release the same stories I do in other places on this site too, so that the reader won’t have to hop between websites too much. All I will say is, stay tuned for some weird and strange content!
