NaNoWriMo 2017: Week 1

NaNoWriMo 2017 has officially kicked off! I have a loaded schedule this month, so I’m not sure how much I can actually get done, with two friends visiting separately from the other side of the world and six days’ exams at the end (and I still need to study for it!) but we’ll see. March…

Cover Reveal for NaNoWriMo2017 and the Next Project

NaNoWriMo2017 draws near, as does the start of my second project. As promised, the cover reveal for my sequel to 2014’s NaNoWriMo, a science fiction-fantasy combining the ethics of simulated reality, human experimentation, and doing The Greater Good. Welcome to March City: The Rebellion of the Gifted.

All About Writing: Fantasy Politics

Politics and fantasy might seem a peculiar combination. After all, one associates politics with real world conflicts, uncertainties, impending war, back-handed dealings, and lots and lots of unsavoury mud-slinging by politicians all around the world.

Film Review: In Time

I watched in time, a dystopian sci-fi, to gain some more inspiration as I plot March City 2. In Time follows a future where everyone stops ageing at 25 years old and their internal clock starts to tick, and that clock is used as currency. Time is life. Cue cries for justice and overthrowing the…

Completing March City

28 November 2016 marks the upload of the last chapter of March City: The Land of the Gifted, my first attempt at NaNoWriMo back in 2014. This story took almost two years to complete simply because of the long hiatus I took not long after the 50k, so that, along with Seeker: Demon Killers, are quite…

March City Resumes

So as I’m making serious progress in continuing my NaNoWriMo 2014 project to completion, I’ve started posting March City again on Wattpad. It’s strange delving back into Ari’s world again. Everything is so familiar and I even remember the depression and lack of motivation coming back, which was why I didn’t want to start posting…
