Books I Read in 2016

It occurred to me I should put a list of the books I read in 2016. Just so I know what books I have been reading so far. I had looked at my shelf at home, picked one and remember when the last time I read them. So for an easy access, here it is…

On Writing Multiple Stories At The Same Time

Today, I’m at Seattle’s Best Coffee. I didn’t set myself to write outside today. But I was informed two in the morning earlier that I would have to accompany my uncle in the renewal of his license. My uncle came from Singapore and is not used to the places around Metro Manila. So I have…

Long Session Editing

Today, I want to thanked the following: Dunkin Donuts in Shaw Blvd. Wendy’s Greenfield District Bo’s Coffee Makati I want to thank them for the patience they have for one customer who is trying to be a writer and spends time in their place more than a customer should. I especially want to thank Bo’s…

Addiction to Passion: The 15th Hour

          Last week was Easter Sunday so I didn’t get to leave because I have to spend some family time. It was a jovial one.           But today I continued my streak of more than ten hours and just as the title say, I broke and shattered by previous record of fourteen. I stopped…

And I’m not feeling productive with scrolling news feed and catching up with some people. But I opened it to…

Fourteenth Hour Continuation

Hey! Me again. This is still a continuation of my last entry and yes, I’m still sane. In fact, I feel like I’m unstoppable though my fingers are shaking and I’m finally feeling the fatigue. I can feel it in my arms. If earlier I feel vomiting with colds and coughs. All of those are…

The Fourteenth Hour

I’m just so so so tired and sleepy today. I just finished editing, adding and deleting my novel a minute ago. Surprisingly, it isn’t my fingers that are exhausted. It is my head. I just want to sleep and to close my eyes. I think I can’t go home at my current state. I’m feeling…

A Short Note on Finishing another Novel

I am just feeling grateful today. I just want to document it so when I start another one and looked back again I would know how it is like to finish another novel. I just put `the end. ` I didn’t necessarily write an entire novel this time. It was a read through of the…

A Thousand Days in Venice
really liked it
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...
