The Boredom

Boredom Writing is boring. I just wrote a short novel before I started editing Stars II. This blog is not about Stars II nor this novel I just finished recently but rather on why I started writing a new story and the amount of time it took me from editing Stars I. Stars I have…

Documentary: Stars Series, “Stars Standards” High Fantasy

          I’ve been hearing from many writers that the average time span to write a book is six months. I wonder if this is real or not. I hope it is. For two months since the start of February and now, to the end of March I have been heavily revising and editing the first…

Documenting Magnus Opus

The Documentation So, I’ve missed logging in journal tracks here. I really get lazy writing blogs, but that doesn’t mean I’m not writing, especially novels. Actually, only novels. I had replaced Bo’s Coffee for a new one and though I missed that place, the usual ambience, familiar music and some familiar faces, it was time…

Writing my First Non-Fiction Book

So, I succeeded in forcing myself not to write any first drafts fiction. I was not scheduled to write any first draft and I’ve been telling myself that for months now, but I just can’t help it. Now, I succeed in not writing first draft. I’m scheduled to join a class, where I think we…

My Messy Revision Style

I have nothing to write here. I’m so lazy to add something in this blog. I didn’t really used any creative juices today because I’m editing for the whole day. But anyhow, let me just share you some of my revision styles. This is not my whole process and I still struggle with revising/editing/rewriting side…

Misinterpreted Requirement

So today is Sunday, but depending on how you view time I think I would say it’s already Monday, 2:30 am. Another full day of writing. Nothing was new so I wouldn’t divulge further into it because otherwise I’ll be repeating same boring routines again every Sundays. Just want to point out though there was…

Excerpt: Stolen Diary

Excerpt: Stolen Diary

  I, her knight in cold winter night. I, her sword in battling rights. In her disgrace, I embrace her tight. In her blindness, she leans to my might. But in my darkening sky, she is my light.     Alec to Philippine Tala

Lurking Premonition

I want to write something. Something that has always been within me but is triggered rarely. There were days where I have this feeling. They call this gut. They call it instinct. And mine happened to be intense. I know other people do have this same instances where their guts seemed to shout. This voice…

A Thousand Days in Venice

The book is designed to be tasted, not just to be read. The story is beautiful and romantic. I categorize it in a romance section with a light, happy,tone vibe.
It's thick with food recipes.

Eleanor & Park
liked it
Y.A. is not really my thing but I'm a little scarce with money to buy a book right now.
So what better way than to crash my sister's bookshelves and break the usual pattern of fantasy with a lot of murder and blood.Pick this novel out...
