I've been chipping away at Bram Stoker's Dracula, which I picked up at the used book store for a couple bucks. I didn't realize it was written in the form of recorded letters, journal entries, and newspaper clippings. What's weird is that it reminds me in parts very heavily of Salem's Lot (which I read right before this) and I have to continually remind myself the chicken came before the egg in this case.
Overall it is very engaging so far considering it is a bit passively written.
In other news my work instituted an enterprise wide collaboration system with Blogs, Wiki-like capabilities, groups, and projects. A lot of my creative juice has gone there instead of here in an effort to kick start the site and hopefully build a readership amongst my colleagues and maybe even some influence on real decisions. It's been weird writing only expositions on work-centric themes but a good challenge. I'm really thinking of taking the Intro to Non-fiction Continuing Studies course in the fall because of this.
Finally, I just wanted to take the time to thank Zaynab for giving me the guts to rename my blog, I really am happier with it this way even if I did lose all my comments! Woo, my comments are back!
