Noodles, Temples and Cable Cars: A Trip to Hong Kong

I'm just back from a trip to the buzzing metropolis of Hong Kong! It's not my first trip to Hong Kong- but since my first trips were when I was young, innocent and unable to remember much- this is kinda like a first trip. Hong Kong is an ex-British colony, made up of the Kowloon …

The Novels I’m Starting…

It's been some time since I had time to write a real 'new' post on this blog (eg. not taking old content and posting it again)...but I'm back! I am still a rather busy person (and will continue to be for the rest of my life...I guess) but anyway first off I want to talk …

Sestina Poem- A Glorious Massacre

I haven't posted in some time- I've been in a flood of homework recently. I'm going to be having my term break soon, however, so I'll finally get around to writing again soon. Anyway, just to have some new content here, I decided to post a poem I wrote for English class a few days …

Short Story- Just a Dream

I've been incredibly busy these past few weeks. Barely had time to write anything new at all. So, I'll take a never-published old short story to post here this week.JUST A DREAMJames teared the envelope and slowly pulled out the paper inside.

Cutting Back, Freeing Time

We live incredibly busy lives and I'm no different. 24 hours is all the time that we're given in one day. And the 24 hours is partitioned up so that there's barely any free time. We'll do the math. Say, we sleep for at least eight hours. That leaves us with 16. I go to school from …

Rewriting Novels?

As you may or may not know, a while back (well, a long while back) I finished my novel, Revolution: Rise of Darkness. To recap, here's how I summarized my novel:A group of teenagers go on a school camping trip into the national park. They go off to the forest, and return to their camp simply …

WordPress vs Tumblr: Where Should I Blog?

I'm having a bit of self-doubt on whether WordPress was the correct place I chose to blog. Now...ugh oh my god I can't get over starting all my sentences with 'now'. Anyway, I'm coming to a point where I'm considering moving from my long-time blogging platform, WordPress, to Tumblr. It's not like I don't like …

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 …
