Marina is obsessed with medieval fantasy. While her dream is to be an author, under the pressure of her family, she goes into mathematics and science, which leads her to create a virtual reality system that allows the user to import their own worlds and live out their fantasies. Then, of course, Marina has to try out her own creation and ends up in a fantasy world that she has written and published herself. Unfortunately, though, she spawns in as an enslaved person. No big deal, though, as she can just exit the game, right? Right?

Unable to get out of the game, Marina is forced to take on the role of an enslaved girl disguised as a young man named Rino. Using her knowledge of the world and the story and her scientific and mathematic prowess, Marina seeks out the protagonist Edward Allen Dihas and offers her skills to him to become the emperor. Will she be able to help her male lead achieve his ending? More importantly, will she be able to find a way out of the virtual world?

Manhwa Review | This Villainess Wants a Divorce! by AhBin

Title: This Villainess Wants a Divorce!
Author: AhBin
Artist: AhBin

This is a good old reincarnation story. A young Korean woman is reincarnated into a novel, and the person she has taken over happens to be the villainess of the story Carnelia Easter. She just so happens to reincarnate right after her marriage to the crown prince Caesar. If the original novel were to play out as it should, she would marry the male lead Caesar under the direction of the empress in an attempt to weaken Caesar’s claim to the throne in favor of her own son. Caesar would eventually go off to war, return a hero, proving that he is worthy of the throne, fall in love with the female lead Gracie Lancaster, who Carnelia tries to get rid of only to cause her own execution resulting in Caesar being free to marry Gracie and to take over as emperor.

Not willing to set herself up to die this time around, she makes a concerted effort to help Caesar thwart his stepmother’s plans as well as grow closer with Caesar. She does her best to ensure Caesar still achieves all of his goals while she cheers him on from the side, in hopes he will grant her an amicable divorce so she can live out the remainder of her days in peace. But unfortunately, not everything goes to plan as Gracie and Caesar don’t seem interested in each other, and Carnelia herself begins to fall in love with the prince instead. As a result, the story starts to change. Will Carnelia be able to keep herself alive in this unpredictable story, or is she destined to die no matter what?

Manhwa Review | Beware the Villainess! by Berry

Title: Beware the Villainess!
Author: Berry
Artist: Blue Canna

Melissa Foddebrat is the villainess of the novel All the Men That Loved Her, but the Melissa we are following is not the actual Melissa from the story. Instead, she is a Korean woman who has somehow reincarnated into this novel. Having read the story herself and knowing that her fate is to suffer and die, Melissa is determined to defy the world she has been thrust into and forge her own path.

In doing so, she rescues the female lead from her own fate at the hands of the men that vie for her attention, earns the trust of her family and employees, and even befriends and gains the admiration of an abandoned werewolf. All the while, though, the main plot of the novel continues. Will Melissa actually be able to defeat fate? Or is she destined to fall?

Personal Post | Goals for the Year 2022

I really want to make more of an effort for myself this year to go into things much more purposefully than I have been. I typically do things on a whim, especially with my writing. I’ve had pieces that I’ve worked on them on and off for years with the intention of one day finishing them, but this past year has put everything into perspective. I have had health issues throughout last year, and my sister had multiple strokes, so the concept of death and mortality took the forefront. I quickly realize that I am not young anymore. I don’t have the time that I used to. I want to achieve more before I die. I know that sounds exceptionally morbid and a bit cliche, but it is something that seems to have just dawned on me. I have decided to make more of an effort and be more productive this year. The first step is to publicly put out actionable goals for this year to hold myself accountable. As selfish as it sounds, I hope you all will also help keep me accountable, and I will do my best to do the same for you all. Please feel free…
