Hospitalized

Being hospitalized is not fun.

I never liked being punctured with needles all over, and I certainly don’t appreciate having to lay down all day to “rest”. Sometimes I feel my condition worsen just by staying in a hospital for too long.

However, I just spent this week being hospitalized.

This should explain why I was super late at posting the writing prompt results from last Saturday, and my lack of updates through any of my social media (Twitter, Instagram). And if you guys haven’t guessed it, this is also the reason why this week’s blog post is arbitrarily more raw and unpolished.

For that, I apologize.

Everything “New” in 2019

When I said I would be taking a month off blogging, I certainly didn’t expect just how much I would miss doing it.

A lot of things had happened during the month I was away from my blog, but at the same time, I didn’t feel like anything major had happened at all. Sure, there was my friend, Felicia’s wedding a few weeks ago. But being one of her bridesmaids, the whole event drained me of almost all my energy—to the point where I got bedridden out of pure exhaustion.

But now that I’m officially over my month-long break, I was quite troubled by what kind of blog posts should I be writing. You know, last year was all about my upcoming books, writing tips, and some tidbits about my personal life. But I wanted this year to be different—I don’t want to just be doing the same thing over and over.

Maybe Everything: FAQ!

Hello everyone!

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!

UNSPOKEN WORDS Now on Goodreads!

37518064

I had imagined that announcing a new book, after nearly two years of not publishing anything, would be nerve-racking.

And, for the most part, that holds true even now; I still feel nervous when I think that the manuscript I completed in June 2017 would soon hit the shelves and be read by people.

But little did I know that, more than anything, announcing this book could also be very exciting.

Yes, it’s official.

My upcoming book, “UNSPOKEN WORDS”, is now up on Goodreads! You can click the image above to go directly to the page.

Keep yourselves posted by following my Twitter or my Instagram, both of which I’m very active on. Who knows, I might be announcing a giveaway soon….
