Progress tho

Finished the draft of chapter nine last weekend. Using an unreliable narrator on top of increasing amounts of metafiction is challenging, to say the least. But I'm sorta content with how it's turning out. I think I want to get the story's skeleton on the page before I start seriously considering big changes, so I'm… Continue reading Progress tho

We Back At It

Finally finished chapter eight. And it's a long one. Probably too long but I'm not worried about that right now. Point is: it's done! I won't lie, one of the big reasons why it took so long to finish this one in particular is that I have a penchant for procrastinating. But the subject matter… Continue reading We Back At It

Write Tunes – Levitate

This was actually one of the two songs that moved me enough to make this playlist. The first being Cherry Blossom by Eternity Forever/Ben Rosett. Levitate is like the low end of my chill spectrum and Cherry Blossom is the high end. So yeah. It's a good song. Probably the most "chill" on my playlist.… Continue reading Write Tunes – Levitate

We Goin’ Clubbin’

So I put together a small book club with a couple of my friends probably about a month ago. But we're only calling it a book club because we only discuss my book and my book only. Kinda just happened out of nowhere. I was talking to both of them individually on the subject and… Continue reading We Goin’ Clubbin’

Dearly Beloved

"Thinking of you, wherever you are. We pray for our sorrows to end, and hope that our hearts will blend. Now I will step forward to realize this wish. And who knows: starting a new journey may not be so hard, or maybe it has already begun. There are many worlds, but they share the… Continue reading Dearly Beloved

What Truly Matters

Another progress update, yay! The writing process is weird. For me, it's like take some notes, really try to visualize it (may take longer than a day), transfer it into prose, go to bed, wake up and read what I've just written, do some tweaking, repeat. Writing a novel is hard. I know what I… Continue reading What Truly Matters

Not too much longer

I procrastinate a lot. I mean a lot. Of course, I'm referring to writing this novel. Admittedly, I can say I'm procrastinating a lot less than I have been lately but it's still like pulling teeth to an extent. It's like I always just say to myself "I'll do it tomorrow" but tomorrow never comes,… Continue reading Not too much longer

Balancing Feel and Story

More often than not, I'll forfeit the ability to experience a story with my own imagination via books for watching TV or a movie. It's weird to admit as someone who's studied English for the better part of his life, but I really don't love reading. I honestly never really did. In fact, unless I've… Continue reading Balancing Feel and Story
