November is fast approaching. And lots of stuff happens in November. Thanksgiving and election day are the noteworthy American events. (My fellow Americans, don't forget to vote!) But another event happens in November, one I'm sure some of you will recognize.

Hey, how's it going?

cleverpun's reading journal: Mistborn: The Final Empire · 6:38am Apr 19th, 2022

Long time no blog. Been writing a lot, been busy with work. But I've still found time to read. And what better thing to blog about?

I recently finished Mistborn: The Final Empire, the first of Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy. I avoided it for a long time: as a fan of Sanderson's writing, and because of the sheer number of book in the series, I knew it would take up a lot of my time.

Does Anyone Know of Recently Published Medical/Science Thrillers? · 7:23pm May 3rd, 2021

She's writing a medical/science thriller. The comparative book can be a little loose, but ideally not that dissimilar. The comparison can not be;

Happy International Asexuality Day! · 9:48pm Apr 6th, 2021

I discovered/realized/admitted I was asexual this year. I've always been asexual, it's just that now I have a word for it.

Asexuality is a complicated topic, and I'm hardly an expert. But feel to ask any questions you feel like in the comment section. I won't be offended.

And to start you off, here's some questions I've fielded in real life so far (mostly from my family).

  • What is asexuality?
