This site was bult on the Hugo framework to fulfill two purposes: create a place to write some short fiction, and have a simple flat flat website to experiment on different hosting set ups. I’ll update where this site is available as things develop.


The minimalist, design, lightly edited to conjure the idea of a government form of some sort uses the Ghostwriter theme by JollyGoodThemes and was ported to Hugo by jbub. Anything buggy on this site is down to me, not them. I chose Ghostwriter because the set up accomplished the most without me having to do too terribly much. The appropriate theme name is just a happy coincidence.

The liner notes

Here are some resources help me tweak this site to my liking. Maybe they help you, maybe they don’t. What? You want to fight about it?

Aligning images in markdown is greatly helped by’s blog post on the topic. Editing text files and writing content is mostly done in Brackets. Tweaking CSS and processing Sass on the fly is made really easy with the Scout-App. If you ever want to work on image styling without loading a bunch of generic images that you’ll later need to purge, then placebear is the thing for you. More tool sharing as tools emerge.
