About Me and this Blog

I am a writer planning to specialise in the niche of Chinese fantasy. I will be mainly blogging about my creative efforts under Moonlake’s Writings and what I’ve learnt about the craft of writing along my writer’s journey under Writer’s Craft.

To celebrate what I’ve achieved since the creation of this blog in enlarging my writerly connections, I’m creating more author interviews. So the sub-menu of Writer’s Journey under Writer’s Craft will now feature many author interviews where you can read of amazing stories on various aspects of a writer’s journey. I hope that the stories told through these interviews will be enlightening and inspirational for those with a passion for writing but have reservations of taking writing seriously due to various concerns as well as fellow writers who have already decided to embrace writing as a passion fully and openly.

I am also a book worm so there’s Moonlake’s Reading Corner containing not book reviews per se but rather quick and dirty summaries of my thoughts on various series, standalone books and authors.

Moonlake’s Goodwill currently consists of Moonlake’s Spotlight where I share work-in-progress or published work by other writers that I deem high quality as well as other bloggers and websites whose causes are share-worthy and the Tale Behind Tales where I will be conducting interviews with those showcased on Moonlake’s Spotlight. As the name indicates, this section is powered by my goodwill towards fiction and causes that I personally endorse alone and nothing else. As of writing, this particular blog is absolutely free of affiliate marketing or cross promotion attempts on my part.

As an aside to fiction, the Serendipidity page showcases all that occurred to me that have been pleasant surprises or just right for me at a particular time. Just a reminder of the positives that has happened in my life.

I can never keep up a habit of writing diary entries properly and so I will not be blogging every day. New posts will appear most likely appear on Sundays for Australasians (or every Saturday for those in the US) but I could be posting at whim too *wink*.

P.S. Previous followers will notice that I’ve finally cleaned up my blog and removed most of the non-writing drop-downs. I will eventually relocated to a new separate blog but it might be a while before I finish doing y anng

  1. Fantastic idea for a fantasy setting, I’d love to read it someday!

    I have to say, though, if you’ve started writing then I don’t consider you a wanna-be. You’re a real writer. For me, at least, I find it helps me to be more determined with my work if I think of myself as a writer, and not a hobbyist.

    Anyway, great blog, I’m sure I’ll be back!

    • Thanks for dropping by and the comment itself. You are the first! Well, I have started writing but I don’t really have ambitions to be published any time soon (for me writing is more of a leisurely pursuit though I would like to do high quality writing which is different from successful published work so…). There is surely something in what you say though for now I find it’s easier for me to write with the belief that I’m just writing for myself rather than using writing to feed myself. I get into all kinds of writer’s blocks when I think about how hard it is to publish, find the right niche etc. But yeah, surely welcome to drop in now and then for updates on my progress and other writing related stuff.
