Thoughts on Writing Historical Fiction

I'm now a few weeks into writing Shield of Fire (my historical fiction novel about the Persian Wars) and my progress has been very slow- only got to chapter 2? I thought I'd talk a bit about how I'm doing with writing historical fiction. Firstly, I want to write this post because of the highly important reason [...]

Short Story- Café Confession

I'd said in a previous post that I wanted to post short stories. Been pretty busy lately (and will be for about two weeks more, since it's major assessment time at my school) so I decided to post a short story I already have. It's a love story called 'Café Confession' and I hope you [...]

On Writing Short Stories

Should I be writing more short stories? As you may have noticed, I call myself a 'writer' but I have never posted a short story on this blog before.

Funerals, Cancer and Death: Memento Mori

Not that anyone very close to me had died, but still, having funerals to attend at the start of the year is not exactly encouraging. I mean, today's January 14th which means it's two weeks, and I've already went to [...]

Remembering the Flood, One Year After

This week I'd went on holiday to Pattaya, a city in Thailand's east, famed for its beautiful beaches and a tourist hotspot. Stay clear away from the scandalous red light streets and a peaceful vacation can be found here. I've been to Pattaya lots of times, and apparently a friend of my mother is an [...]
