So... What entails for November?

1. Edits for Fire Heart.

2. Writing a glossary for Fire Heart to accompany field guide.

3. Yule Mice (if possible).

4. Launching Dragon Physician on Radish.

5. Going away for a break.

Why going away for a break? I am exhausted. This year has been great writing-related, but my emotions are wrecked. International news are not helping. We are going into dark times and the world feels it.

I might also take the away time to think about my future, health-wise. I might have to see my therapist/psychiatrist again. November is also where they pack all my important medical appointments together. So you get the blood tests, the mammogram and the liver scans together in a week! Goddess knows how I am going to cope with the financial aspects of all these tests... But I am crossing my fingers.

So... This is November for me. :)

And Merry Beltane to the Southern Hemisphere folks!

Also: I am now a verified Radish author and I will be launching my YA fantasy serial about dragon racing on 7 November.

RIP Jin Yong.

I have grown watching wuxia drama serials based on his books. He is a legend and will still continue to be, having inspired so many writers.

Renewed DW account. Scaled down to paid, not premium.

Likewise, Samhain/Halloween (or Beltane) card draws are on until end of the month. The deck is inspired by/based on Southeast Asian/Peninsular Malaysian fauna.

A couple of things I worked on got published/greenlit. An anthology of international spec poetry will be out on the 4th of December.

And if things will work out, fingers crossed, I will be writing serialised fiction.

I am still feeling the remnants of anxiety, spillover from last week which was not an easy week (it being exam results week for Cub/my eldest). I haven't written anything. Instead I baked bread, drew stuff and made pumpkin soup from scratch. I am considering taking another break, since I also feel the onset of PMS. :/

Light your candles.
Fill your bowls with candy.

And remember those
who have gone before you,
who are in your heart.

It's Beltane!

I lit candles in lieu of the fires last night. It's May now - the Wheel is fast moving into the next season.

And this. Diversity is only a cool buzzword if you don't put it in action.

Whatever you are celebrating, be happy, be merry and also remember those who have gone before us.

In the home stretch for the release of Obsidian Moon, Obsidian Eye.

May your autumnal equinox be filled with plenty and joy.

It's a time for reflection and general inventory time before Samhain.
