Liminality who?

Hiya!

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.

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: Miscreants: Inauguration, a messy and long-winded fantasy story about a guild, a Queen's court and lots of flower symbolism


*If I don't share your awareness or visibility post, if I haven't read your important authors of the year, and if in general it seems like I'm a quiet person, that is because I am. Being constructed entirely out of gumballs and candy floss, I'm incapable of being aware of much at a time, much less of letting people know I am aware using words, and that doesn't mean I don't care. Thank you for understanding. \(OwO)/

The most important thing is to preserve the world we live in. Unless people understand and learn about our world, habitats, and animals, they won't understand that if we don't protect those habitats, we'll eventually destroy ourselves.
