Finally! Thank you!

I finally got my WordPress app working on my phone. It took me months before I could even log in. My laptop has been a total pain in the butt, so simply surfing the internet is already a big task. I’ll hopefully be able to post more often now. I’ve been swamped with schoolwork and other responsibilities.

I still write every chance I get. Stay inspired in this chaotic world of ours and always inspire others.

NaNoWriMo Update!

How is everyone and your bubbling novels-to-be?

My novel writing for the month has been going well after two days. I’m doing my best to stay above the average number of words we need per day. It helps to stay on track, especially when there will be days I won’t be able to write enough. I didn’t really plan this novel I’m working on, but I’m surprised how easily the story is coming out.

Did you guys take a lot of time to plan it or are you just winging it like I am?

I’m just wishing everyone the best of luck and inspiration for this month of vigorous writing. It will be worth the challenge. Just believe you can make it.

On All Hallow’s Eve

Yes, every post is most likely to be about this ghoulish holiday, but I’m not really focused on that at the moment (maybe a little later).

It is also the day before NaNoWriMo begins and I think I will be joining and finishing. This is going to be my first attempt and I’m a bit shaken up. It’s all about setting goals and loving the idea you have in mind. I’m also not too keen on joining the threads and forums at the moment, even though I want to. I am fully aware of my old post on the anonymity of the internet and how it provides a free ticket to confidence and self-building for introverts, like myself. Honestly, I’m terrified with what reactions I might get if I post anything there. It’s childish, I know, but I still feel that way.

I know I gotta build up the strength to be more open to others freely. It will greatly help me in making friends and reaching my goal to get 50,000 words uploaded in my entry for this month long writing spree. I’m positive at one point (or maybe even more) I will be needing help and ideas. I’m hoping to get a great experience out of this. This will be hard for me to juggle with my classes, but I will get more done before school starts.

Is anyone joining NaNoWriMo? Maybe we can be Writing Buddies? My NaNoWriMo username is pagechanger22.

Now, on a different note…

Is anyone or everyone excited with Halloween? Do horror writers love this holiday like I imagine? This is a night of creativity and the sky is the limit when it comes to the written world. We see weird and odd costumes up and about and they may all inspire something in our creative spirits. I enjoyed Halloween as a kid and I still do. I now crave to stuff myself with sweets, but that’s not totally feasible. I could get away with it as a kid, but not so as an adult.

Happy Halloween!

Happy writing for NaNoWriMo writers! The climb begins tomorrow! 😀

Always be inspired!

A Week of Events.

Well, it’s Monday again and a new week of school/work(for others) begins. Let’s just say there’s a lot of things happening for me (and one for the world) this week.

  1. Yesterday was Father’s Day (which I wasn’t able to post on, so Happy Father’s Day to all fathers and soon-to-be fathers!)
  2. Today is my grandfather’s death anniversary. It’s been 8 years since he passed on to the next life. We miss him a lot, but at least he’s in peace.
  3. Tomorrow is my dad’s birthday. He’s still in the US, so I miss him a lot, but we call him almost everyday.
  4. The next two days (after my dad’s birthday) are the birthdays of my two cousins, who are in a different city as I am and it happens to be far from here (a whole lot far).
  5. This week, my schoolwork is going to start kicking in, which will have me busy and on my toes again, so I hope to still manage this as much as I can. Even if it means just putting up some flash fiction of whatever I happen to imagine in my head.

Have a great week everyone! Be inspired! Be creative and productive!

What Charlie, Jacob, and Hadley Taught Me.

You might be wondering if I actually know people with these names, but to my misfortune I do not. These are characters from three books I managed to read in the two weeks I was recuperating from my recent minor surgery. Even as a bookworm, I never expected to read two out of three of these books, but yes, I was able to do it. I don’t regret reading them because they were very enjoyable.

Do you guys have any guess to what books I’ve recently read?

Well, here they are…

  1. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
  2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
  3. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

I will do my best to make book reviews on these three during the week and maybe up to next week. It’s my first day of class (again) and I’m gonna have my hands full again. I know I promised before to make a film review of The Hunger Games, but I guess I don’t have much experience with critiquing films, since I’m not much of movie-goer or not that much of an enthusiastic and critical one.

I’ve been feeling better as each day passes and my creativity is on the prowl once more. I’m still working on my second manuscript and my contest entry, which I feel is going good. I hope to get a lot of writing done, despite the hectic school work heading my way.

I’m still very lost on making my queries and synopses. I start, but then I suddenly feel extremely uncomfortable. The kind of feeling you get when you’re in front of a crowd of people and you have to deliver an impromptu speech with your mind completely blank. I know, it’s very silly, but I don’t really have anyone nearby with experience to give me a shove. Reading how to make those things is easy, but doing it yourself is like trying to drive without any lessons or going somewhere without directions. Yes, I’m apparently that lost. Writing the story is always the fun part, but getting it off the ground is something else.

I’m not chickening out of my dream to be a writer, but I guess I’m at a rough patch. I just need to vent for a while. It makes me nervous. I’m still young (just turned 21 two weeks ago) and I have a lot of chances to do this. I won’t let this slip away.

This is the first post I’ve made in an internet cafe, since I make my posts at home.

Be inspired to make art and make a change!

Sorry!

I dearly apologize to those who follow and read my blog. I am well aware that I haven’t updated in more than a week. It’s all because I’ve been very busy with school work and since we’re in a summer term, everything is so very fast paced and filled to the brim with work. I hope to put up new stories and updates as soon as the semester is over, which is about next week Saturday. That would be just in time for a short story.

Because of this summer term, I had to put a lot of my creative work on hold, but I promise to get back to them as soon as possible.

Be inspired! Love life! Make beauty!
