A Toe in the Amazing Land of Solarpunk

Claudie Arseneault/ February 1, 2015/ Inspiration and Ideas, Personal, Science, Varia, Viral Airwaves, Worldbuilding, Writing/ 3 comments

The first time I read the term “Solarpunk”, I got really excited. First before I was struggling to find a genre for Viral Airwaves, and this seemed like it might fit (it kind of does). Second because I am a big sucker for steampunk, and for new solar technologies. But what is solarpunk? It is a genre that reenvisions the future

New Site, New Book

Claudie Arseneault/ January 29, 2015/ Books, Personal, Projects, Varia, Viral Airwaves, Writing/ 0 comments

Hey everyone! It’s been forever since I last came here, but it is time to (kind of) resurrect this site! Mostly because I want a stable deposit of information on my novels, and infrequent news. I might occasionally talk about the writing process again, but not promises. Mostly, if you want more, you should consider following either on tumblr or

The Major and the New Writing Strategy

Claudie Arseneault/ December 23, 2011/ Editing, Personal, Viral Airwaves, Writing/ 3 comments

Great news! Though you might’ve heard, because I’ve been posting it everywhere on the internet except here. I have completed my Biochemistry Major! Hurray! *confettis* I thought I’d feel way more accomplished than this, but this instead feels like the first big step of a not-yet-finished road. Still, proud to scratch that from my Life To-Do List! Meanwhile, I’ve also

Claudie Arseneault/ December 20, 2011/ Excerpts, Writing/ 2 comments

Hey guys! Today I’m guest posting at Sommer’s wonderful blog! So head over for a piece of flash fiction, and how I go about writing those. Oh, and please ignore the typos/mistakes as much as you can. It was written in the mist of three very exhausting weeks, and apparently two rereads did it no good. *SHAME* I hope you

Making the Time to Write

Claudie Arseneault/ December 15, 2011/ Writing/ 4 comments

Every distraction not to write is a good one. Including this blog post. And the truth is, as writers, we often are professionals at finding the distractions. We allow them to take away from our writing time, and at the end of the week, we complain about our lack of progress. I’d know. I spent the entire semester doing that.

Perseverance

Claudie Arseneault/ December 7, 2011/ Personal/ 4 comments

Small hiatus is, sadly, not over! The reason stands in a very simple fact: my boss gave me 30 hours of work for the last 3 week… in addition to my six classes at Uni (regular ‘oh-my-gosh-finals-I’ll-never-get-through’ semester is five classes). Thus, I am insanely late, and tired, and stressed. I did manage a Wicked & Tricksy yesterday. And this

The Immortal Jellyfish

Claudie Arseneault/ August 22, 2011/ Science/ 9 comments

Nature is full of surprises and crazy exploits. Some are pretty and fascinating. Others are mindblowing. Turritopsis nutricula is one of them. This medusa is smaller than your fingertip, but you can bet it’ll live on longer than you. In fact, barring environmental predators, it’ll never die. That’s right. Our friend T. nutricula is an immortal jellyfish. Turritopsis nutricula uses
