The full moon is a bright pearl in the sky,
illuminating
little children while
they carry
lanterns that
light the way.

Today starts my social media hiatus once more.

Don't worry. I will post updates. But there will be reduced presence as I need to give myself a break from social media and its consequences.

Updates.

I seem unable to pull myself away from werewolves and lycanthropy. In this case, Chinese werewolves who cherish family ties, traditions and culture. I have an urban fantasy (contemporary fantasy?) series set in Singapore. Then this story idea crept in – a space opera with werewolf merchant/warrior clans. At first, I wanted a grimdark feel to it, but I think the story took its own form and shape.

I don’t think I will ever write to industry standards or trends. The werewolves-in-space idea might be laughable to some, hilarious to others, but it has been fun writing it and visualizing a world with metal and fur.

Starfang: Claw of the Clan is now serialized on Wattpad and Patreon. Wattpad has a better format and does not screw up layout and wording. Many grateful thanks to my supporters and readers.:)

Did a DW clean-up and re-organization. If I unsubscribe you, no offence. Interests, beliefs and thoughts have diverged.

Subsequent posts will be filtered/friends-locked. Unfiltered posts will only be general updates etc.

Taking out the painkillers for today. Uterus is rebelling.

And happy birthday to the spouse!

It's so warm today I didn't mind standing under the (lukewarm) showers. Outside right now, as the day edges towards evening, the sky is a blue-white, with fierce sunlight making sharp shadows on walls and the construction site next to my apartment block.

It would seem we stand at the threshold, at a liminal moment - perhaps the summer is reaching its peak and we see the wheel of the year turning. At the moment, it is painful and terribly warm - the chinwags talk about global warming. I say we stand at the gates; the choice is ours to step through.

I am going back to work again. In the same school. Only a different subject.

But, at least, it's work.
