I had four articles published these past two weeks, one about velfies, one about data safety, one about Thuli Madonsela’s media address about Nkandla (South African politics), and the seventieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Here are the links:

Forget Selfies — Velfies Are the New Social Media Craze

5 Top Tips to Keep Your Personal Data Safe

Thuli Madonsela’s Media Address in Brief

Hiroshima and Nagasaki 70 Years Later

I also just want to say thank you to those readers who click through to the articles every week — I really, really appreciate it!

Camp NaNoWriMo of July 2015 is Done

For July I put my word count goal at 20 000 words and completed it on 23 July — going into the month I thought I would have a last minute dash on 31 July to get it all done. I ended up writing about 25 000 words for the whole of July and I want to keep up with doing that amount of writing. I worked on a bunch of projects, as I’ve written before, including a bunch of short stories. These now need to be locked away for a while before I look at them again. As always, they are extremely upbeat and all have happy endings…
