When I was a little girl, I swore to myself that one day, I’ll have my own ISBN (International Standard Book Number). I said that I’ll have my own book and I’ll be proud of the first ISBN that will be assigned to it. I dreamed about it because it symbolizes that you’re a real author. That you have your work in the market. That it’s legit.

My book has been released, but still in digital format as of now as numerous paperbacks are pending in the publishing house. In the publishing house’s website, you can read the first three chapters of my novel. It’s just a preview, so a lot of pages are hidden. Then a couple of days ago, finally, my publisher sent me MY COPY of my debut novel in digital format. And when I saw the ISBN, I just felt my heart jumped because this is it.

My book has been released a long time ago, but it still fascinates me how dreams really do come true after all the passion and efforts you’ve poured out. I get to have my ISBN (not technically mine, but still haha!).

And just a couple more days to go, I might get my anthology of prose and poetry as well as a new novel of mine in a contract deal with another publisher. The waiting time is almost over. Cross fingers, hoping, praying. And by next year, through Sir Pong’s help (he’s my Film Appreciation and Production professor), a bigger opportunity is waiting.

The joy in my heart is already up to the brim. I’m looking forward to becoming a writer who won’t be boxed in only one line of work or genre or whatsoever.

2018 has been a wonderful year for my writing career.

To the people who have been by my side all throughout, you know who you all are. I love you!

Just a while ago, James Dashner, author of the hit Maze Runner book series which have been adapted successfully to the big screen, tweeted about a big news for Newt’s character.

Newt portrayed by Thomas Brodie Sangster has been killed in the last installment of the Maze Runner book and film series-  The Death Cure. But Dashner seems like he wants to tell more about the much beloved character. Maybe it’s going to be about his whole story before the WICKED took him. That would be an interesting read and also going to be a great movie if ever they’ve decided to do it.

Whatsoever, all Maze Runner fanatics are excited!

 

Are you a Maze runner die hard fan? Are you Newt’s No. 1 fan? Tell me about your thoughts in the comments section below!

Ending up on the Tiny Buddha site and reading this article is destiny. I typed I’m lost in the search bar and Google gave me tons of links. There are interesting reads, but this one just got to me. Why? The circumstance of the writer is very much the same with mine. Especially on the part where he said that he love writing (although writing a book or telling stories is so cumbersome for him that he looked for an alternative which is songwriting; in which in my case I am writing a book or a story , and it’s really hard like he said, but I’m still continuing because I love it), I really felt him.

This article just made me feel alright.

After You by Jojo Moyes | Book Review

Ever heard the term ‘Book Boyfriends’? Well, we all have our fair share of them, at least if you read books though or have watched their movie counterparts.

Male characters that we love, believe it or not, affect the way we see the opposite sex in the real world. We unconsciously want to see the qualities we adore on those male personas, from the guys in our reality. Most of the time, we end up disappointed…right? But that’s okay! We can still go back to the books/movies so we can relish on them all over again and forget the crappy, real dudes out there. HAHA! Kidding!

In this list, I swoon over No. 3 Jace Herondale from The Mortal Instruments, though I will go for Jace Wayland, his previous version in a movie played by Jamie Campbell Bower. I think the guy featured here is from the TV version.

Also, my ever favorite Will Traynor of Me Before You at No. 12. There’s my hard-headed but cute boyfiee Fitzwilliam Darcy from Pride and Prejudice at No. 10, but I prefer the version played by Sam Riley in Pride, Prejudice and Zombies.

I also like Augustus Waters, Gale Hawthorne, Four, Christian Grey…and look there at Marius Pontmercy! I never knew until now that my idol Eddie Redmayne portrayed him!
