Wuxia Novelist: A Writer's Blog

Wuxia Novelist: A Writer's Blog looks at the broad range of issues encountered by me as a novelist working in the Chinese wuxia (heroic fiction) genre. I have, however, a very broad background and this blog will not narrowly focus on one genre of literature, rather I will consider books, movies, and ideas that relate to my life as a writer. For more information about my background please visit my author's website: www.thedragongateinn.com or www.facebook.com/WuxiaNovelist

This is a new blog that will deal with a wide variety of issues that basically relate to writing and the writing life. I should first explain that my outlook on writing is heavily influenced by my rather long background in traditional Chinese culture. I am a medieval China scholar turned fiction writer. So I've had two fields to plow: Chinese studies and fiction writing. The Chinese studies part involved forty years, at last count, and the fiction writing 20 years and still ticking.

This, more or less, brings me to the title of this blog: "Fish Traps & Rabbit Snares," which might seem a strange for a blog that claims to be "A Writer's Blog." But I'll save that for the next posting as it is rather late here and we're getting a new heating system installed early tomorrow morning. Zaijian, for now!
