Some Stuff I’ve Written Recently

I’ve been trying to write more recently, and trying out new types of writing. It can be hard to find time around work, but I managed to find some time in the evenings and weekends. I’ve even tried going out to cafes at weekends for a change of scenery.

A couple of things have been published recently so I thought I’d do a roundup. Boring post for everyone except me then.

I wrote a couple of articles for the science section of Warwick’s student newspaper, The Boar. One was on the space rock Oumuamua (or spaceship!!?), and the other was on Warwick’s inclusion in Sloan. In the new year I’m planning to try to branch out into other sections (or at least science other than astronomy).

I wrote a short story which was published in another student publication, The Dodo (they put it online as well as on paper, and it’s here on my website as well). I’ve always liked the Dodo, they publish short stories and poems and it comes wrapped up like a scroll and sealed in wax.

And the regular Astrobites posts are still going, most recent one here. I thought it seemed kinda popular on Twitter this month — surprised me as it was a right pain to write.

Oh and a one-tweet flash story of mine was retweeted by Here Comes Everyone, which totally counts as well.
