Do you like long pages of text? If yes, too bad---I've actually broken up the old writing projects page even more so that there is less pain in trying to look for specific sub-sections. Tentatively, this page will contain blog lists and standalone writing. NaNoWriMo entries will go into their own page.
Blogs are my primary means of scratching the writer's itch, an itch that had developed since I was 12 years old due to the influence of an amazing English teacher who is probably retired by now. The blogs are largely categorised by their style and tend to be updated ever so often.
- The_Laptop Writes... is my first blog. It encompasses poetry of all forms, mostly of the free-verse variety. It's seeing less action now as my life gets rosier and I run out of angsty inspiration.
- The_Laptop Says... is my second blog. It encompasses observations of the world in prose. It best fits the traditional notion of what a blog is. It did not began life that way though; but now, it has a sister blog to be talked of.
- The_Laptop Scribbles... is my third blog. It encompasses fiction in prose, often in the form of either vignettes or a serial story. Some of those that I like end up as nicely formatted documents in standalone writing.
- The_Laptop Wrote... is an archive blog for poems I wrote in the now defunct forums back in Victoria Junior College. I feel their quality is lacking but it serves as a nice reminder of times past, as well as a yardstick to see how much I had changed over time.
https://thelaptop.info/blog/ will automatically redirect to the flag-ship blog that I am currently authoring. The URL can be considered the canonical path to my blog at all times.
All the writing here are type-set with LaTeX to generate a pretty PDF. They often come from my prose blog with minor editing to correct for spelling mistakes. As such, these tend to be short stories. Like all lists, this one is also in reverse chronological order.

I may rewrite some of these pieces, and if I do, I will make a note of the revised edition here as well. So far, no re-writes though.
