AH: The Art of Slow Writing

Hullo, world! It feels like such a long time ago since I typed those words, it’s honestly making me feel elated and despondent all at the same time. Well, I’m officially back from my hitouts and hope to stay back, so thank you for being patient with me! Some highlights (?) since I was gone: I did not win NaNoWriMo…I wrote a grand totalé of 8,848 words. Some of them were hand-written, some of them were typed.  I’m almost done with the first term of uni! I have a final exam coming up, except it’s quite sacrilegiously on a Sunday […]

(Belated) Hitouts Notice Through November…

Hullo, everyone! I am so sorry I have not been able to consistently post through October. Just to give you a rundown of last month, I had to write two really controversial papers in college and slogged through midterms (for the first time in forever). Preptober sort of fell sideways so I’m feeling oddly underprepared for NaNoWriMo, but I’m excited about it! On a side note, I’ve also been re-thinking about how I want this blog to look like…I mean, I love it the way it is & have a lot of ideas stocked up. At the same time, my […]

AH: Bird By Bird

I got a chance to go out with my wotaku friend, which always cheers me up… But to be honest, this week has been rough. I don’t know why. I cried a lot, stared at a lot of blank screens, skipped more meals than I should, and have overall been in a tough place. (Not to mention I didn’t post last week. I do so apologise about it!!) Insert Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott.  A book that’s been […]
