Vita Nova

New life. Where to even begin with this? There are few ways I can. For one, it presents aspects of my life and writing.

My love for the language came before I became Catholic and considered myself a student of the classical world and philosophy. That was my Protestant, classic liberal old life. It also can represent my desire to write a novel. Thus a variety of origins.

Vita Nova - The Novel Side

8 Feb 2020 2 minute read 0 comments Iohannes

One thing I'd like to breath new life into by starting this blog is my writing. I have a story that's been paused for some time. It was probably around 2012 that I started to try and flesh out the basic story and write the first few chapters. When I...
