NaNoWriMo 2020 Ramblings #1

November 9, 2020 | Comments

Day 3 of 100 Days to Offload I’m stuck. I decided to do NaNoWriMo this year, just so I could get my creative juices running through my brain again. I’ve had a story in my mind whirling through my head since earlier this year (around February 2020). I stumbled upon David Foster Wallace, by accident, on YouTube. I watched an interview of his and was weirdly awestruck. I’ve always been drawn to thinkers (maybe because I try to compensate for my own lack of intelligence) so it was no surprise to me that I was immediately smitten.

Art is Work

If you have to find devices to coax yourself to stay focused on writing, perhaps you should not be writing what you’re writing. And if this lack of motivation is a constant problem, perhaps writing is not your forte. I mean, what is the problem? If writing bores you, that is pretty fatal. If that is not the case, but you find that it is hard going and it just doesn’t flow, well, what did you expect?

Inspiration from Fictional Worlds

January 25, 2018 | Comments

My last semester was extremely busy. So busy that I spent my commute on the train sleeping everyday instead of my usual reading. I’ll admit, most of my reading is done when I’m on the train. So other than the occasional manga or cookbook, I hardly read the last couple months of last year. Which is devastating. This year (like every year), I resolved to read more. I started out the year reading two non-fictional books about personal finance.

Not Another Love Story

May 26, 2014 | Comments

In a way, I don’t want to read stories about (romantic) love anymore. Too much emphasis is put on love, whether it be on screen, in print, or just in life in general. Not that I’m saying that love isn’t important, because it is important. How a character approaches love can speak volumes about their personality. But I just don’t want it to be the main plot, or even a sub-plot.

Conversations Over Text Messages

Long weird sappy feelings. So much sap and cheese and this sounded better in my head because I kinda read it in a certain way. Man, I just don’t know. Also, for the love of gulay, the end of a line does not mean “pause.” Punctuation means “pause.” Yes, you’re supposed to run out of breath (I’m kinda slightly asthmatic though, so). i’m sorry, but i won’t ever text you again
