What’s this? I’m blogging about my work on a weekly basis – a simple way to track and archive whatever it is I spend my time on.
With the first draft of my novel, the TNO magazine I helped out on and my VARA ARG reporting done, last week I tried to turn it down a notch.

Besides that, on Monday, I wrapped up The Spiral with a final blog post, which was published a day later.
On Monday night, I did a Skype interview with Jon Mak and Shaw-Han Liem, the developers of
On Tuesday, Merlijn Doomernik came over to take the portrait photograph that will be on the back of my book.

I’ve also been playing Mark of the Ninja: both are ‘player-centric’ stealth games in which you get some degree of freedom to reach your goal. One is 3D and big-budget, the other is 2D and relatively-small-budget. I’m having a ball with both.
