Film Review: Pitch Perfect 3

Much as I loved Anna Kendrick and the soundtracks of the movies so far, the character interactions and dialogue have continued to go downhill since 2. It’s awkward, not funny, and drags on too long. PP3 takes us to Spain, where the now-irrelevant Bellas are struggling with their adult lives and try to return to…

Wattpad Block Party August 2018

Once again, I’m participating in KellyAnneBlount‘s Wattpad Block Party ! If you joined us in February this year, you’ll remember how much fun it was and how many giveaways we had!

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 and Medical Bullshit on TV: 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…

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…
