Let’s pop the bottle and celebrate for yes, I maybe a few months late, but finally, I have written 50 love poems! It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, but it wasn’t as easy either. The lure of doing other things was great and constant, but I’m glad I didn’t give up. Soon, this will come out as a compilation entitled, “Love, Talaga” (roughly translated to “Love, Really”) which will (fingers crossed) be launched this coming September at the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF)! Weee! I’m so happy and relieved that things are falling in place and I can now see more clearly where all this work is headed to.
I love writing short stories for my daughter, who, on the other hand, loves editing my work. I survive my full-time job by writing make-believe worlds and poetry on the commute to work and crafting on the weekends.
