It’s really gone…

My flash drive is officially M.I.A. and just when I think I’m over it, I think about it and get sad again. I had so much work on that USB: a foundation for a story that I could only dream of finishing. What bothers me the most is that I never knew how much I … Continue reading

I lost my USB Flashdrive

I suppose this is why you should backup everything multiple times because, as of right now, I have no idea where it is and that means all the work I’ve done is gone and might end up in the hands of who knows who (I hope for my sake it finds its way into a … Continue reading

Why do I write?

The question that is almost as deep as asking what is our purpose in life? Some might say, “Easy! I write because [insert some long speech here].” I’d like to think that as easy as that question is, it’s hard at the same time. I don’t often ask myself this question but when I do, … Continue reading

Amāre?

Written April 5, 2011. This poem was another piece I had done for my Creative Writing class sometime ago. It was a Fiction exercise called “Confessions” — we had to write a poem where a character is confessing something. Not surprisingly, murder and thievery were the main topics that people had written about. Obviously, neither … Continue reading

Point of View

When I was younger, primarily in my early teenage years, my default perspective while writing was always first person. I’ve heard most say that that is the case for most writers, especially for beginners but as I grew I found myself in the position in which I am in right this very moment. First Person … Continue reading

You. Suck.

Honestly, I’m a rather modest individual. I do not boast. I would like to think that I’m an alright writer, maybe even a pretty good one…sometimes great (I have my moments, as do we all). In retrospect, I should have a level of confidence about what I pen but I would like to share with … Continue reading

When things are going your way…

and you just want to throw a party and dance on your bed in your underwear because you’ve finally broken the wall of writer’s block (or “being stuck” as I’d like to sometimes call it). A wall more challenging than that of the Great one in China. Today, things are going my way and I … Continue reading

My Paranoia as a Writer

It is not rare to be asked by people if they could read your work. Often times, depending on the individual, I might say ‘yes’…but, they can only read it if I print it out or am sitting next to them on the computer. I am paranoid, case in point. They’ll say, “Oh, just e-mail … Continue reading

B.S.S. – Being Stuck Sucks

Stuck.   I’m stuck.   Stuck. Stuck. Stuck. It sucks when you get stuck.   Definition wise, the word “stuck” means “to be unable to move further” — and that is rather appropriate for the predicament that I am in.   See, it’s weird because I don’t think I have writer’s block. I’m balancing on the … Continue reading

The Fight with the Backspace Key Part II

Okay, I wrote the first post at almost midnight, while in uncomfortable pain, and probably could have articulated myself a tad bit better, especially within the last line. I’m going to go back and polish a few things. “I just have to remember to fight the urge to backspace, SO HASTILY.” Those are two words … Continue reading
