Where do I even begin? I’ve been away for too long I don’t know how to write a blog post anymore. When I opened my blog today I was surprised to find out that my last post before this was dated way back in May 30. Have I been away that long?
I could blame my being MIA to being busy with life in general (which is true) but that’s not completely accurate. The truth is *drum roll please* I lost my mojo, my momentum, my drive, or whatever you call it. Reviewing books became a chore and as a result, I have too many backlogged book reviews to write.
But while I took a leave of absence on the blog, my hands were full with writing projects!
This is the part where I tell you what I’ve been up to
First is Camp NaNoWriMo in April. I achieved my goal of writing a 20k word novella. And the funny thing is it took me longer to write a 20k word novella than to write a 50k word novel in November 2014.
Then came the #SparkNA Writing Class sponsored by Spark Books, a well-known publisher here in the Philippines. The class lasted for two months. As the name of the class suggests, we were tasked to write a contemporary NA romance book. I did finish on time and I submitted my work to the publisher. Right now I’m waiting for them to contact me and tell me whether they accept or reject my submission. Hopefully I won’t wait for long, and hopefully they don’t reject my story.
The photo below is taken on the last day of the writing class. I had so much fun with this class and it is really great to surround yourself with positive and like-minded people who will fiercely cheer you to the finish line.
I’ve always wanted to attend MIBF but it’s too far from where I live, not to mention that it’s on weekdays and I have classes on weekdays. But this year I’ll try my best to clear my schedule and attend. I want to support my fellow Filipino writers who’ll be there and also meet new friends!
I have so many plot bunnies attacking me I have a hard time deciding which stories I should write first! This year I’m keeping a writing schedule where I plan out which months I’ll be writing what story. In this way, I am on track with my deadlines and goals!
I think I’m back to blogging… more or less. I’ll try to keep a weekly post schedule and follow it! 🙂
