Originally written for a prompt submitted by @semestakatarsis
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, then you’d know that I’ve had this “writing prompt challenge” thing going on for awhile. To put it simply, I post a question sticker on my Instagram Stories every Saturday, and my followers can submit one writing prompt each to me.
During the following day, I would sort through all the submissions and try to write something for them. The results will vary greatly depending on what I feel like writing. Sometimes this could mean a short story, other times a prose, or poem, or anything else in-between.
The best part from starting this initiative, for me, is that I get to build this small (but awesome!) community. I’ve seen the same people submitting their prompts from time to time, also people who were initially too shy to submit their prompts, but eventually took a leap of faith.
It brings joy to me seeing how my followers could find something in this program, especially considering how I first started the initiative because I was bored and wanted to brush up my writing skills.
So after giving it some thought, I’ve finally made a decision: I want to give back to this awesome community, no matter how small my token of appreciation might be.Continue reading
Hello everyone, and depending on when you’re reading this, Happy New Year!
Since this will be my last post for 2018, I thought that listing down my 2019 New Year’s resolution would be the perfect way to end the year for this blog of mine.
Keep in mind that unlike my usual posts, I won’t be talking about any specific item on this list, but I’m planning to make a response post at the end of 2019 to share with you how I fared throughout the year with my resolutions. I hope it’ll be a good year for me, and for you guys, too! Continue reading
In case you didn’t know, I recently have been making an effort to accept writing prompt submissions from my followers on Instagram every weekend. The original intention was for me to get some writing practice on a weekly basis (just to keep the rusts at bay), but the event ended up being so fun, I couldn’t help but hold it regularly.
I am very sure that some of you hardcore followers already know the rules for this writing prompt submission, but I’m going to write more information about this below: Continue reading
This week’s post is a bit different because I will be releasing a new book soon. For those of you who haven’t followed me on Instagram or Twitter, I’ve been posting quite a lot of buzz about my upcoming book: “Maybe Everything”.
Several days ago, I opened a Q&A session on my Instagram account and received a relatively positive response from my readers. I’ve tried to answer every question I received, but as I tell more people about this upcoming release, I also get more and more questions—not limited through my Instagram account—about the book in general.
Now, since a lot of these questions are similar, I attempted to create a list of frequently asked questions below. Keep in mind that I will be updating this list with even more questions in the weeks leading to the book’s release. So if you have questions I haven’t included in the list, please feel free to leave a comment below, or reach me out on any of my social media. I’ll make sure to update the post with your questions!
P.S. I will be revealing the book cover soon, so keep yourselves updated by following my blog or any of my social media!
Depending on when you are reading this post, it might be 2018 already. I had considered to post this right when the year changes, but decided against it since I would most likely be celebrating the coming year with family and close friends.
And I never liked scheduled posts since it doesn’t feel personal.
So please allow me to say the following:
2017 had been a great, smashing year for me. I got to finish a new book, open my very own Tokopedia shop, and even successfully arranged my own writing retreat. And although some hardships were to be expected, I am very satisfied of what I had accomplished in 2017.
I’m delighted to bring news that my upcoming book, UNSPOKEN WORDS, has an official giveaway going on.
The giveaway period would be from December 22, 2018 to December 29, 2018.
