[blog post] may recap

Hello lovely readers~ How the hell is it June already? Now that we’ve reached the centrefold of the year I’ve decided to partake in the monthly recaps that are so popular among bloggers, if not for the sole purpose of having an excuse to update this thing.

[teaser 01] the morning of

  Ami watched the sun rise over the swell of mountains on the horizon. The golden arms of morning spread dawn’s embrace across the sleepy castle town below.

[blog post] the countdown is on

One week until Camp NaNoWriMo July 2015 officially gets underway. I’ve not had much luck with the NaNo experience, having quit partway through last year’s November haul.

[short story] a table for two
