“About this Blog”

“The Blanket Fortress is not only a symbol of protection, but also of comfort and imagination. An essential aspect of childhood, retreating into your blanket fortress is to retreat into your own world and letting your mind take over.”  

The metaphorical significance of the blanket fortress came to me earlier in 2013, and that idea sat, boiling under the radar until I decided to use it as a foundation for this blog. Being the new blanket fortress, this place will be my retreat to that world I’m still trying to make sense of in my head.

Locked Psyches focusses on my literary adventures – muse moments, book launches, and exploring the mysteries of whatever fiction I happen to come across and quill down. Post categories under here include Next-in-Reading (Book reviews & analysis) and Book Bites (Literary events). From time to time, Muse Moments (spurts of writing) and my Wattpad with shorts I’ve been working on will be updated as well.

Dystopian Experiences talks about the parallel universes I end up finding myself in – via the medium of analog and casual gaming. This includes my hobby blog, Blanket Fortress Play (analog gaming & gift crafting).

Life Adventures cover the deeper thoughts I have about my life and the things going on around it, nicely sealed in the waxened phoenix. Post categories under here include Decode: Adventure & Museum Escapades (Adventures with the Crew), Signal Boost (As it is named), Eternal Sights; Spotted Mind (while I wax lyrical), and Updates (on what I’ve been doing in general).

All three sections are reflective of my favourite genres – Mystery, Dystopian, and Philosophical – and my interests in life – Criminology, Museology (Ancient Civilisations/ Art History), and Philosophy.
