WWII or Star Wars — which happened first? [FU3]

Fortnightly update 3: 06.01.2020 to 19.01.2020

While I’ve kept a crude text file diary for a few years now, I’m now going to summarise the happenings of my life in fortnightly blog posts like this one and share them to both Facebook and LinkedIn. This will allow me to be consistent with how I share my progress as a writer and editor, while also improving my reflection process. I’ll post the fortnightly updates on either Sundays or Mondays, though if anything dinosaur-huge happens, I may still make separate posts about it; these fortnightly posts are more about my fortnight-to-fortnight triumphs.

Geetsly’s (Star Wars)

While I write mostly for The Front, I also started preparing to write for the popular Star Wars YouTube channel Geetsly’s. FYI, The Front and Geetsly’s were both founded by the same guy.

A big part of my preparation is watching The Clone Wars, though I also listened to a Star Wars: Darth Plagueis audiobook. It was incredible. Do yourself a favour and at least listen to the sample.

The Front

I write scripts for the popular YouTube channel The Front.

While we only uploaded one video this week, I finished the script about the Polish people in World War II and wrote scripts about McNamara’s Morons (Project 100,000), Britain’s MI19, and the true strength of the French people in the war.

I also started managing The Front History Facebook page and The Front History Instagram account (which is brand new) and made unique posts to both. I’d love for you to follow both!

Hitler, friend to all animals 🌍 . When Hitler rose to power, he saw that existing animal protection concerns in Germany, specifically regarding kosher butchering and vivisection, were adapted into formal law. His right-hand man, Hermann Göring, even threatened to "commit to concentration camps those who still think they can continue to treat animals as inanimate property." This is but one among many examples of Nazi sympathy towards animals, though the topic remains controversial. Much of it may have been propaganda, basically conveying that the Nazis must be "good blokes" because they love animals, and the Jews "obviously hate animals," as their traditions require them to be slaughtered in the most inhumane of ways. In some cases, however, it may have had nothing to do with pro-Nazi propaganda and antisemitism. Hitler, for instance, kept several dogs, and it's also suggested that the Führer was a vegan… when it suited him. #thefront #ww2 #ww2history #wwii #wwiihistory #war #history #military

Project Bronze

Project Bronze is coming along nicely! Roderick Fernandes actually worked on the cover art during an art course held by industry professionals. It’s not done, however, so I’ll wait until he’s happy with it before I share it with you.

Perhaps the biggest update of all, Project Bronze, our semi-secret D&D project, will now feature goats. Try to contain yourself.

fiction_shots

This fortnight, I posted two fiction_shots pieces on both Instagram and Twitter.

The first was about a witch.

And the second was inspired by the Twitter #vss365 word #langour.

Conclusion

My energy was scattered every which way this fortnight, but that’s the way I like it. Monotony is the bane of the creative. Though, in saying that, all I really do is sit in front of my laptop and occasionally go out for a Guinness.

Thanks for reading. May the Force be with you.
