Now Out: Essay 1487 on 拙 (unskillful) and 5 New-Monics

The 290th essay has posted! Essay 1487 on 拙 (unskillful; humble self-deprecation) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

With 拙, you can condemn art as crude, writing as unsophisticated, foreign policy as unskillful, and yourself as incompetent. But 拙 isn’t only about impossibly high standards. The essay shows that speed sometimes matters more than good results. Of course, maybe others won't see your shoddy work that way. Conveniently, the essay also teaches you to say, “I’m screwed!”

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

Also, Ulrike has produced the following new-monics (which are free!):

習 (307: to learn)
羽 (812: feather)
翌 (988: next)
扇 (1492: fan)
濁 (1558: muddiness)
