Essays and editorials

This site is mainly about fiction. I do, however, opine with some frequency about various topics. These opinion pieces take the form of short blog posts, as well as full-fledged essays.

Many of the short blog posts are ephemeral in nature, and I have no qualms about letting them disappear into the deep oblivion of the daily feed. About once or twice per week, however, I’ll write an opinion piece that deserves a longer shelf life. These are organized and hyperlinked below.


Languages and language-learning

Television and film

Books, writing, and authors


Advice, memoir, and philosophical musings (i.e., miscellaneous stuff that doesn’t really fit into any other category)
