The 296th essay has posted! Essay 1384 on 叙 (description) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

From autobiographies to mystery novels to epic poems, stories take many forms. But all involve narration and description, and 叙 drives both. Learn to say, "I will describe the incident as it happened.” Find out about inverted descriptions and inverted mysteries, as well as a "Gulf War novel." Also discover two manga artists, including one who created a Fred Flintstone look-alike.

Using the accompanying game on the Character Home Page, you can practice the vocabulary in the essay after reading it. 

Also, Ulrike triumphed over jet lag to produce the following new-monics (which are free!):

握 (999: to hold)
衷 (1585: innermost heart)
堤 (1620: embankment)
倒 (1643: to topple)
披 (1726: to open)

Finally, we're updating the privacy policies for both Joy o' Kanji and Kanji Kaimono in preparation for the EU's General Data Protection Regulations ("GDPR"). Find out more here.
