Mona's Musings:Devil's Fist and Lion Rock

【明報專訊】A few weeks ago, I received a writing assignment about Lion Rock. Little did I anticipate the stress this would entail due to the complexity of emotions attached to the subject.

As the deadline approached, my page was scattered with mundane sentences-safe on all fronts, inspiring on none.
