Moonlake’s Broadening Horizon Reads

This is a new commitment that I came up with this year, in hopes of advancing my writer’s craft. Specifically, it involves reserving 2 of my annual 20 reading slots for: 1) a book completely outside my usual genres of fantasy, mystery, historical fiction and any possible combos of the 3; 2) a book withinContinue reading “Moonlake’s Broadening Horizon Reads”

Fiction writer with Aphantasia: So What?

So nothing, I reply. What are you talking about, Moonlake? Well, let’s me go back to the start. One of my FB writer friends pointed me to this article: https://www.facebook.com/blake/posts/10156834777480504 Briefly, the article talks about the condition called aphantasia which is basically an inability to visualise things in your mind. And guess what? I’ve gotContinue reading “Fiction writer with Aphantasia: So What?”

Moonlake’s Book Discoveries- April 2018 (2)

Other than the 2 books in the first half of this post, it was really another Christie splurge… Passenger to Frankfurt by Agatha Christie So apparently I had read it before and then picked it up again from my local library and I think it’s okay, I didn’t particularly like it but there’s nothing toContinue reading “Moonlake’s Book Discoveries- April 2018 (2)”

Moonlake’s Book Discoveries- April 2018 (1)

I clearly had enough of just light reading so I changed it up a little by branching out to a new sub-genre: historical fantasy. This coincided with my decision to join a historical fantasy book club on FB. The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley This wasn’t that engaging a read in that there’sContinue reading “Moonlake’s Book Discoveries- April 2018 (1)”

Moonlake’s Book Discoveries- January 2018 (2)

The Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie This is one of the so-so books in my opinion from Christie. I don’t think it’s badly written per se but there’s just nothing to make it memorable for me. Death in the Clouds by Agatha Christie This book has all the necessary suspense attached to aContinue reading “Moonlake’s Book Discoveries- January 2018 (2)”

Moonlake’s Book Discoveries- January 2018 (1)

Bad girl me had left this series by the way-side for too long! But, to be honest, I haven’t been reading as much so I possibly could in the past, since reading does compete with my writing time. And I’ve also been doing more of what I consider light reading too. But that’s enough preamble,Continue reading “Moonlake’s Book Discoveries- January 2018 (1)”

Where have you gone, Moonlake?

I went off to outline the first book of a Chinese fantasy series that I intend to debut with under the name of Moonlake (I am waiting until I have more materials before sharing details but stay tuned!). Yes, you heard me correctly, I’ve been outlining a book for almost 2 years now and IContinue reading “Where have you gone, Moonlake?”
