Some kind of restart

It’s officially the middle of 2020, and it seems like a good day to revive this blog! Hello there! I wanted to say that “I meant to blog here” but I realize that’s kind of a lie. I never really meant to blog anything in the past months after my last post. I thought about it, but let’s be honest: it’s easier to write Instagram posts and tweets, and long-form seems like a lost art in some way? *looks at my long-dormant mailing list* The main reason behind this is I have been so busy writing. Unfortunately, it’s not fiction–all… Read More »Some kind of restart

Hello, 2019

Happy New Year! I wish I’m blogging this after a slew of posts for last year but as it turned out, I only managed two posts. I don’t have any excuses – I just didn’t really make that much time for this blog because of the usual things: work, life, and maybe a crippling sense of self-doubt with words? D: I did a review of 2018 last night and while I think the year wasn’t bad (my family is in good health, had a great year in my day job and had a great time with my different groups of… Read More »Hello, 2019

St. John Paul II’s Letter to Artists

I think it was from The Crunch podcast where I first heard about St. John Paul II’s Letter to Artists. I searched for it, found the actual text and a video, so of course I clicked the video first: And I started blubbering like a little girl. In the office. So now I went for the full-text, loaded it into my Kindle (along with other Papal letters, exhortations and encyclicals – Pope Paul VI’s Humanae Vitae, anyone?), and started reading. For such a short piece, I think it took me weeks to go through it because I have to stop every now and… Read More »St. John Paul II’s Letter to Artists

Hello, 2018!

Hey look it’s 2018! Hello, how’s the first day of the year treating you so far? 🙂 2017 was very eventful, more in terms of #romanceclass events than the actual writing. We had several events for the community in the past year that I’ve actively participated in the behind-the-scenes (and I only got to recap one, haha) that it feels like I’ve spent most of the year with them. That’s probably true, and I don’t mind. Oh, and I got my books live read twice this year, and nope, the feeling still doesn’t go away. (And I’m getting something read out… Read More »Hello, 2018!

Hello, 2017!

Happy second day of 2017! So, like everyone else, 2016 has been an eventful year for me, too. I wrote a general recap of it in my personal blog, and most of the things I put there were book things and #romanceclass things because there were just so many of them that I want to remember. But if you’re too lazy to click over there for the recap, here’s a quick list: AprilFeelsDay Book # 1.5 – It’s a Match Book # 2 – Keep the Faith FeelsRushIn #romanceclass lectures Manila International Book Fair FeelsFest, this live reading of Keep… Read More »Hello, 2017!
