I reread an old post of mine recently: A Barnacle’s Tale, so I thought I’d narrate it.
Eating a dragon fruit,
with its pink scaly skin and its deep purple flesh,
not checking my phone, nor reading an article,
nor talking to another soul about this and that,
I saw last night that my free book The Girl with the Green-Tinted Hair has nearly 2000 ratings on Goodreads. If you haven’t grabbed yourself a copy, please do.
After several months of wallowing in a dry well of creativity, on the 23rd May I started a draft of my story (the one I’m commissioned to write for the Taiwanese movie director), which I would go on to finish on the 25th June (my birthday).
I have an annoying tendency to edit and reedit as I’m writing my story. I say it’s annoying, but in actual fact I love doing and can’t imagine not doing it.
As is my wont, I stuck in my earphones, and scrolled down my Watch Later list on YouTube, to see if anything tickled my fancy. Something did tickle my fancy…
A friend sent me a nice article about how we can benefit the earth, on earth day, by doing nothing, inspired by Lao Tzu, but I’m not sure if he meant that..
I store my laptop in a small wooden box, that was a prop in the Taiwanese movie Seediq Bale Warriors of the Rainbow….
I’ve just finished what I consider to be a decent draft of a stage play – my first stage play.
OK, I’m just gonna come out with it…
