Hi, I’m Nate Chen, and as you may have guessed from the title of this blog, I’m an author. This being the Internet age, I’ve naturally decided that blogging would make a good an excellent platform to hone my craft and put my work before you.
I know, a real surprise, right?
My emphasis is fiction, so don’t come here if you’re expecting hard headed opinionating on the latest news. That’s not really what I do. Instead, I plan to structure this blog around a Mon/Wed/Fri update schedule, with each day of the week devoted to something a little different.
Starting in October, Mondays will be devoted to a piece of serialized fiction which I’ll be talking about more in the next few weeks. In the mean time, I’ll be writing about the philosophical thoughts that led up to my writing that story. Yeah, real exciting, I know, but authors live to write their forwards. I hope you’ll indulge me.
I’ll admit to being something of a heavy thinker, but all thought and not play makes for a dull blog, so Wednesdays are focusing on cool things, which is why this post is going up on a Wednesday, even though I’m not planning to officially go live until next Monday, Sept. 3. Because what out there is cooler than this blog?
Don’t answer that.
Finally, Fridays are where I’m going to talk about my actual writing process and the general day-to-day trials of being a writer in a world that thinks of writing as, well, kind of slacking off. It’s a tough life, sitting here in front of my keyboard, and if you should ever feel like joining me you should read some of these posts first. I’ll do my level best to scare you off.
So there you have it. I fully intend to make additional posts as the mood strikes me, but I hope that, from here on out, you can expect to see those three subjects addressed on a regular basis here on this blog. I look forward to hearing from you, so let me know what you think!
