Liminality who?

Hello! This is your local Lim_bot speaking (not an actual bot, so that title is aspirational ;) ).

I'm a hobbyist writer who enjoys experimenting with a variety of genres. Writing helps me think, and thinking helps me write! I believe starting lots of projects you've not 'finished' is perfectly okay, and I always think the projects I start are like little bottled messages for the me in the future. Maybe I'll find something new in them years later and finish them up then :D

I grew up reading mostly Anglo-American writers (despite me being Southeast Asian, whoops!) but nowadays I read a little here, I read a little there, I read a little everywhere. I enjoy speculative fiction, absurdist fiction and sci-fi/ fantasy, as well as some classic dystopians. When it comes to poetry, I used to be a big metered poetry fan, but in recent years I've expanded out of that into enjoying poetry based on syllable counts, concrete poetry and prose poems. I'm also a fan of reading non-fiction, such as biographies of writers and philosophical works.

Currently reading: Atomic Habits by James Clear
Currently playing: roguelike text-based RPGs, some otome games, and The Witch's Isle
Currently writing: reviews! Trying to get that Team Tortoise :D

Too often we crave the extraordinary in life, without even learning how to cherish the ordinary first. Friend, I promise you this: if you can learn to take joy in the simple mundane things in life, the extraordinary will take care of itself, it'll be on its way, hurrying towards you. But if you skip the first part, it'll ever evade you.
