by A Metamorphosing from Myanmar
Hello from Yangon, Myanmar,
I have been enchanted by Twine and the flair it adds to storytelling since I was introduced to it at a game workshop this year. The original work of this essay was supposed to be a letter talking about my experiences during the coup, but as I was writing, I realized none of the paragraphs connected to each other. Though this attempt at playing with Twine maybe lowkey making up for bad writing, it’s a fun maze to go through and connect the dots. At least I hope you think so.

မိုးသောက် or ‘moethauk’ literally translates to ‘drink of rain’ but is used in the Burmese language to refer to the early morning or dawn. The participating scholars in this section of the blog are from Myanmar and chose this name to reference a new beginning, starting over in the wake of the damage caused by Covid-19 and the recent military coup in Myanmar.
