I am intending to work on new writeups for:

I am thinking about working on:

Difficult projects that I may try to tackle later:

As you may have noticed, my first major writeup was Candide. There are lots of things about Candide that are interesting but I haven't yet found a way to fit into a writeup:

  • The thing with how everyone dies multiple times but comes back to life again (with no explanation given)
  • A complete list of numbers (edit 1/22: okay, this is probably impossible and not going to happen, esp. because this guy does such a better job of it.)
  • A better mention of the secondary characters: Dr. Pangloss, Maximillian, Paquette
  • The differences between the Hellman and Wheeler books, and how that influences discussions of Candide as a whole; also, differences from Voltaire's Candide, or Optimism

Suggestions most welcome.
