I have discovered that although it’s symbolic to start a new project at the beggining of a new year, it really has a good start, because January finds me heavily engaged with exams. This year is no different and right now I am battling a series of tough as nails exams, which promise utter and total annihilation.
Rest assured the real content will come flooding soon enough. Tomorrow will be dedicated to my coroner’s examination of 2012’s decaying corpse and Thursday I will dedicate a whole post on the wonderful work by Jonathan Wood. Then come Friday, Jonathan Wood will speak about his love triangle between love, professionalism and himself. I’m fairly big on professionalism and taking yourself seriously, so the following weeks will have a bunch of writerly people talk about these things.
As I am engaged in writing paper after paper, I have had a number of research topics that simply pop in my head, though I don’t think that I will pursue them any time soon or at all:
- If something is not to be found on the Internet, does that discount its existance in the material world? Thoughts on the significance of the virtual reality and culture on offline reality.
- On the elements of successful corruption of a virtuous character in fiction.
- Why we crave scantily clad women in fiction? A rant on Sucker-Punch.
