All About Writing: How to Write Fantasy (Part 1 of 2)

This is the post I did for Kelly Anne Blount‘s Wattpad Block Party : specifically, how I plotted my fantasy story, RUNE MAGE. There are many methods of plotting a novel. Two methods I’ve used before were the snowflake method and what I call the “There and Draft again” (TADA) method, named after the blog where…

Film Review: Dr. Strange

Hey, a combined Medical Bullshit on TV and Film Review at the same time! What’s next, me reviewing The Good Doctor or Scrubs or Grey’s Anatomy? Hahahahahahaha. OK. I love Marvel. I love Picnic Bandersnatch. I love superpower movies. And this one has superpowers that are so psychedelic it’s mesmerising. I could watch that all…

Critique: Hall of Games by Stefanie Saw

I beta read Stefanie Saw‘s latest version of Hall of Games (the Wattpad version of which is here) and have her permission to post my review/critique of it. Contains spoilers.

How I got my agent

I think this post is long due. It’s been a long journey with plenty of ups and down. Many people have helped me along this journey, and I am eternally grateful for their companionship and advice. So, settle down, grab some Mountain Dew, it’s story time. I first queried in…

Currently Watching: Orange is the New Black (Part 4)

I’m fully caught up to the end of Season 5 of OTINB now. I find it quite odd they (as in, the outside) didn’t shut off their water and electricity supply. If they did, the riot would have resolved so much quicker and wouldn’t risk the leaked footages that compromised the higher-ups’ reputations. Every time…

Currently Watching: Orange is the New Black (Part 3)

Currently on Season 5, Episode 8, the prison riot. I’m still a big fan of the side characters, their individual conflicts, strifes, and backstories, but the story arcs are getting ridiculous. The prison riot/lockdown is possibly the stupidest arc yet. There is no organisation, no planning, just a bunch of adult women playing The Lord of…

Book Review: Lord Loss by Darren Shan

I reread the first book in the Demonata series, LORD LOSS, by Darren Shan, and basically re-lived my book-loving teenagehood. This review does not contain spoilers.

Film Review: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tells No Tales

Growing up, I was a big fan of the hilarious swashbuckling laugh fest that was Pirates of the Caribbean. At the end of the initial trilogy, it was obvious (well, it was obvious by Dead Man’s Chest) the story was running out of fodder and the laughs more and more forced. POTC 5 was no…

Book Review: This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay

It’s not often I read non-fiction as reading and writing fiction keeps my head above water and escape from the world, but when I heard about diaries written by fellow junior doctors in the wake of the junior doctors’ strikes of 2016, plus with me currently being on a gap year away from medicine, I…

Film Review: Thor: Ragnarok

I love Marvel films. I love superheroes. I love Thor. But I have to say this… how do I phrase it nicely… What the fuck did I just watch?! Contains spoilers, duh.

Film Review: Murder on the Orient Express

I love a good whodunnit movie. With this all-star cast adaptation of a well-loved murder mystery classic, I had great expectations — and wasn’t disappointed Contains spoilers.

Film Review: Cinderella

Disney animated films were very much a part of my childhood, so I always have intentions to watch these live-action adaptations which seemed to be all the rage recently. I’ve heard great things from the acting to the costumes, so I was looking forward to watching this during a 13-hour flight. Contains spoilers, duh.
