9 Lives of Eril

Link to new story:


Alright, here’s the new story as promised on facebook fanpage.

Although chapter 1 was written few months back, it wasn’t posted as I wasn’t sure where this story would take flight to. Initially. the purpose was only to understand the long running character “Eril” more, in the novel that I’ve been working on for a decade or so, as a different approach to character development and history.

Then, I realised this could very well be the backstory or starting point leading to the events of “Part 1” (to be renamed later) and even better, building up a fictional world as a base to write on for future stories of the same world.

Currently the story is stuck at Chapter3 with broken scenes but that should be fixed as soon as time becomes a luxury for the soul. It may sound impossible but more holidays are on the way ~


Repost: iCat–living with a cat was never easy

Today’s repost is iCat; the story of a cuddly feline who walked into the protagonist’s life and the funny things that happen in-between.

iCat’s inspiration came from stories of various cat owners and their experiences. I personally don’t live with one, sadly, not that it is an issue. That said, when you let a cat in the house, you aren’t owning the cat like you own a dog. Sadly that’s what most people think they are doing and when they realised cats aren’t that easy to take care of, they abandon them. Then again, some dogs suffer similar fates.

Taking in an animal pet, whether it’s cats, dogs or rabbit, one must always do sufficient homework to prevent any mishaps. Sure, I’ve always enjoyed walking through a neighbourhood with roaming cats but pet abandonment is a very cruel thing to do.

There is a common misconception that cats inherit their hunter instincts from their ancestors thus they are self sufficient. That isn’t entirely true for having the instincts to hunt doesn’t equate to successful hunts all the time; this is especially true for older cats which are no longer able to find their own food.

Cats, like humans are also prone to illnesses, mental distress and really really bad days. Throw all these factors together and you’d see that although cats are still hunters by nature; they aren’t exactly fed well in these urban areas if not for the feeders commitment.
