I Write Good Words

Hi, I'm Sek Han. I do corporate legal work in the daytime and write short stories in between. 

"How do you manage?" I don't. I try to not write bad words and then hope people agree the words are good. 

I've also co-edited two anthologies where I help people write good words. I do translation work (Malay, English and Chinese) where I get to look at other people's good words.

If you like words that are good, feel free to reach out via sekhan.foo@gmail.com
