A Discreet Introduction


I go by Makkel. Why that name? It doesn’t take a genius to know that this is not my real name. However, it has a nice ring to it. Note: the pronunciation is as such: “Mac” (as in an Apple computer) – “kell” (as in… the k- sound, and then the pronunciation of the letter “L”). I have had much confusion regarding the pronunciation, and would not like to repeat that confusion.

I suppose I should detail what this blog shall entail. Its main focus will be, quite simply, my rather unobtrusive and inconsequential life, which includes but is not limited to my interests in writing, art, politics, philosophy, and other things. You may see snippets of my writing, sketches, discourses on various subjects, and my opinions on current events (often political in nature). If you are blatantly opposed to slightly right-leaning libertarianism, I suggest you take a read of my political insights, and keep them in mind. If you are not, do the same anyways. My philosophy of life is rather obvious – it primarily follows that of Ayn Rand’s objectivist attitudes, as in the title of this blog.

My writings are mostly science fiction in nature, but may deviate from that, depending on what I find interesting. I often have several projects occurring simultaneously, as I do now. You may also find some brief essays on various topics, including a few nostalgic ones.

I am no professional artist, but I do dabble in most every medium. Most common are simple pencil sketches or doodles, but I do foray into digital art when I have the time.

If you are at all interested in any of my own interests, please, go ahead and follow this blog. If not, that is of no consequence either. Until next time, dear reader.
