As the burdens of life weigh down upon my weary shoulders, I find myself with little spirit left to pursue wider interests. I still lift and still follow science news, but feel no motivation to write about them anymore. These are topics that are too broad and vast for me to tackle alone.

 

However, I find my passion for writing rekindling, and have come to the realisation that there are a dozen little things that take up my time in a day that I will never regret missing, but it will haunt me beyond my dying day if I do not achieve something with my writing ability.

 

A life well lived is one of few regrets, and to that end I have started a new writing blog at thewritingthorne.wordpress.com. I post short stories, flash fiction, longer stories, and tidbits of my magnum opus, The Seven Circles. Further, I will put up publishing, editing, and writing advice for aspiring writers.

 

Even if you’re just looking for a casual read to pass the time and tickle the mind, please head on over to take a look.

“Consider that you can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are travelling at 220 km/sec across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not “you.” The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato.

The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don’t just look at a rainbow, you create it. This is pretty amazing, especially considering that all the beautiful colours you see represent less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum.”
