There’s gotta be more than this

I was eighteen. I was three semesters away from graduating college. I just survived one of the strongest typhoons ever recorded. I had an amazing family, and I was in an awesome relationship. The plan was to graduate college, work abroad, make a bunch of money and live my life that way. But even with that, even with everything in front of me, I took a step back and looked at my life and asked, “There has got to be more than this, right?” When you’re about to die, they say that your life flashes before your eyes. And when […]

To write, or not to write?

I think we all have those days. You look at your computer and all you see is that stupid blinking cursor, just taunting you. Waiting. Just waiting for you to fail to get a word out of your head. Just waiting for you to just give up, close the window and get sucked into watching another season of something your friend recommended. Just waiting for you to check your checklist and put an “x” on “write a f*cking chapter” But then it’s worse when it happens for a week. And then a month. Little did you know, you haven’t written […]

Love, love, love <3

There is so much love in the world right now, don’t you feel it? People who have waited for years to be wed can now have each other’s last names. In my hometown they’re celebrating our fiesta and my Facebook feed is full of happy greetings. Even with the news talking about the other side of it, why listen? Why open the news to hear about bombs or death or of a fire? It is good to be informed, but why depress yourself with something that you have no control over? Beautiful things are happening, why ruin it? I have noticed […]

Long Distance Relationships and Other Disasters, #1

I hate long distance relationships. I’ve hated it since I was a kid and my dad would always go to another country for work, leaving my mom and my siblings, thus the first long distance relationship I could ever have. Whenever he would come home I’d ask when he’d leave again. Little did I know years later that I would be the one who was doing the leaving in my relationship. Let me go back from the beginning. “Hi. Nice to meet you. I’m Anthony.” It was love at first sight for him. At least that’s what he told me. […]

All My Favorite Words is done!

There’s an achievement that every writer crosses over that just means something. For some reason I skipped the usual achievements. I published  a short story collection before writing an actual novel. But today I have proudly finished my first ever novel! All My Favorite Words was a short story collection turned into a creative non fiction. 😀 I just wanted to share that and document it here. So there you go! Also, the first author I launched has her book at 44% discount this weekend! Check out her book here: My Best Friend’s Brother

There are a few

There are a few who see talent in its raw form. There are a few who encourage it, to see the caterpillar transform.   He taught us the Chuga dance, and even how to make a siopao He’s driven and ultimately awesome, Ready to help his students with every chance he can get.   To the first teacher who helped me find my voice, who have done it to others a thousand fold, Happy Birthday Sir Stephen Esber, You are one of the few who see beauty and help mold it, Thank you to wherever you are in the world.

Why so short?

I write stories as if they were one night stands. Boom. Kablam. Thank you ma’am. You go in, you meet this sexy little thing, you get to know about it, read it, then something happens inside you and you just dive. Moments later that person walks out  the door and you’re either feeling satisfied or empty, depending on how the sex -in this case story – was. If you fell in love with the character or not and if you hated the story or you want more, you can’t do anything about it. The story walked out of your life but […]

Talking about myself…

I don’t like advertising myself. Really. It’s just weird and awkward and I’d rather be talking about someone else, but that won’t make my books get read. So for at least once a month, I’ll talk about myself. Haha. Anyway! My 5th book of my Less Than Three series is now FOREVER FREE on Amazon! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’d know that I signed the publishing contract last July, and got my first book published last October! And now the fifth book is Free and is even available on Google Play! I’d LOVE it if […]

I am a Gleek : Double Wedding episode

  I have been a victim of bullying. For those who have been reading my blog since it was imperfectprincess.blogspot.com, you’d know this. But then I had Glee with me ever since I was in high school and I’ve been singing and dancing without a care in the world. And now this. The two favorite OTP’s have gotten married and I’m just the happiest little Gleek in all the world. For those who don’t know what Glee is, shame on you. Lol. I won’t go into details because then I will launch into total fangirl mode, but Glee is a […]
