It was one year in the making.
Remember how we were holed up at the Writer’s Bar at Raffles last year, reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child over copious cups of tea?
Well, a few days after that, a new batch of theatre tickets to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child went on sale, and much as we bellyached over the content of the screenplay, we decided to join the online queue for a shot at the much-coveted tickets… and before I knew it I was on a trip that snowballed into me fangirling all over the UK.
It’s been a couple of weeks since I got back, and I’ve been tackling the pileup in my workload (and my hallway library is in disarray), but I have so many stories and photos to share from this trip, so let me start with this one.

Hope to see you there!

I’m baaaack! There’s a reason I’ve been remiss in blogging this past month, and it’s called Inktober.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I had a “past life” as an illustrator but hit a major roadblock that pushed me into quitting drawing (almost cold turkey) for several years. It got to a point that I felt like I would never draw again, followed by a fear of starting over, and then a series of false starts that didn’t really lead anywhere.
So when I saw the Inktober drawing challenge on my feed one day (Sept. 30, to be exact), and I thought it might help. I haven’t really been drawing until recently, and I was scared of putting my work out there, so I said I would do it if I had friends who would do it with me. I didn’t think they’d take me seriously, but then they did, and I couldn’t take it back (hahaha).
