I kept the fast this year. Perhaps the hardest year that I have kept the fast. I was without community, without those to keep the fast with me. That was difficult. However I emerged. Soon homestays will begin. Will not have access for a while.
All the best

|Writer's Block: Going Without
Have you ever fasted or done a cleanse?
Twice a year, on Yom Kippur, and Tisha B'av I fast the required 25 hours. I would fast more routinely, as there is a certain mental clarity that comes from the fast, and as I move on in my life, I know that there will be more fasts required for any number of reasons.

|Thoughts on The Middleman
Yesterday, after starting on Tuesday, I finished The Middleman. I thought it was a fun series with wonderful characters (Wendy, Sensei Ping, Lacey...the list continues), and had an interesting premise. While I am not likely to write any fanfiction, I want to recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fun show. In my opinion, it is very much like Dr. Who, except just a bit more with the humor.

|Start of a LARP
After combing my brains for things to write, I have finally started on writing a LARP, tentatively titled "The Business in Belfast." As of yet All I have is a basic premise and one character sheet. As this is my first time writing a LARP, I think some nervous tension on my part is justified. As I develop more of a back story for the entire LARP, a list of characters, things of that nature, I will keep everyone advised. At the moment, I'm not seeing this being much more than a ten to twelve person game, small compared to some of the other LARPs I have heard described, but larger than others.
I just hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew...
All the best

|End of the Alphabet
At long, fucking last it is done. I have written twenty-six drabbles about the Sewing-Life alchemist, coming to (most likely) just over two thousand plus words. While this might not seem a lot compared to some of the other stories out there, it is a lot of energy focused on a character who is far from sympathetic for most of the time that we know him. So the question becomes, what drove me to write about Shou Tucker above all of the other compelling characters in Full Metal Alchemist? One of my friends said it best, I happen to be very good at writing characters that happen to be rather difficult to sympathize with. Previous examples include: Irene Adler (blind pre-cognitive), Shepherd Book (mysterious preacher who has no issue shooting people in the knee), Souji Mikage (ghostly psychologist who specializes in bringing people to the darkest parts of their mind and keeping them there), and Dream of the Endless (immortal personification of Dream). I have other characters that I have written, and would like to think that I have written well, but Shou Tucker was perhaps one of the most challenging I have written to date.
The challenge with Tucker is that there are moments when I as an author absolutely hated him. There were moments when writing these drabbles, I had to stop and literally walk away from my computer to focus on something else. There were other drabbles in this series that I wrote very quickly (in the span of ten minutes or less). The main difficulty of Tucker was trying to keep him true to the series and to show all of his humanity, both his positive traits and his faults. Granted, it was often times easier to focus on his failings, but I don’t think that I would have attempted this had I not seen some of Tucker’s positive qualities. There are moments when I definitely felt sorry for the character, and there are clear moments in the series that show just how flawed of a being he is.
Portraying these flaws was perhaps one of my driving desires in writing these drabbles. It is also these flaws and the fact that Shou has moments of great humanity (such as when he comforts Edward in episode 5) that drew me to the character. However now that I have finished writing this series of twenty-six, I do not think that Tucker will make an appearance in any more Full Metal fan-fiction that I will be writing. As fun as some of these pieces have been, I am relieved that I no longer have to focus on this singular character. After over two thousand words dedicated to him, I have nothing left to say.
