I made a good amount of novel progress, partly fueled by some excellent critique from quufer. I got addicted to Instagram, bookmarked an absurd quantity of Nanjing photos, and picked up some mutual followers from around the world. I rebooted my personal website as a one-stop shop for the best of my artwork and article-suited ramblings. I reviewed a few local haunted attractions and conventions and brain dumped some advice on writing.
And I finally finished the writeup of China, which you can read here. Please do. It really was a great trip.
