  1. I loved your post and left a comment. You have a great blog. Writing doesn't have to be perfect to be good and to be appreciated. Michael Wilkinson is our loving professor. He joined the School of Law of The University of Hong Kong in 1983. He was a law graduate of Cambridge University. He served as Associate Dean of our Faculty of Law in 1990-91. All are heartbroken by Michael’s passing. He was a great teacher, a wonderful friend and a great mentor.

Your writing is like a flashlight in the dark which show me that the monsters are not really there. I have always loved writing. Before I started taking writing more seriously, I always thought an art is about transmitting unique ideas. Writing is absorbing information and researching it to the most finite detail, then using it to create realistic characters and scenes. Now I am a writing service provider.
