I return from the ashes

Like the phoenix, Scorched Amalgamation returns!

The last time I posted on Scorched Amalgamation was back in 2012. Back then I primarily used this blog as a place to publish my poetry while I was working on my Masters degree in Creative Writing.

In the subsequent years, I have changed and the things I want to discuss have changed. But I find myself in a place where I would like to blog again. I want a place to express myself. I have opinions that I want to get out there. But I don't necessarily want to publish creative writing anymore. For one, I haven't really been doing any creative writing. But I do want to write, just about topics that interest me, not necessarily poems and short stories.

So, I am taking the blog back to the root of its name. An amalgamation is a mixture, a fusion. It is the action, process, or result of combining or uniting. So this blog will, more than ever, become an amalgamation of the stuff I love. 

  • Discussions of anything and everything board game related
  • Discussions of topics related to education and teaching, especially teaching Secondary English
  • Book Reviews
  • Movie Reviews
  • Scholarly Essays/Discussions
  • Musings
  • Music
  • and maybe even some creative writing
Really the sky is the limit here.

I hope that you will join me as I resurrect this blog. Maybe something I discuss will be of interest to you.
