To kill or not to kill?
Another artwork of my OCs. So far, I've only drawn them being silly and dorky. I think this picture better shows their true dynamic.
My plan of writing book reviews regularly in the new year fell through. That's okay though, here's a combined post of everything I've read so far.
Remember that post where I bemoaned how boring I'm finding my story? Well, I'm here to say that the feeling hasn't improved much. But at least it's gotten to a tolerable point where I can write down words for the sake of writing down words.

Musings after reading DILA last night.
Every time I open up my document (like I did just now actually), I would just not have the energy to write. My mind would go blank, even though I already wrote a thorough outline of the upcoming chapter. It's not even writer's block, because I do know what to write -- I'm a planner. I know what the characters have to do next, I can imagine them doing it in my head. I just don't feel like physically writing down what I imagine.
Half of the second semester is almost done.
A mutual on tumblr suggested I draw my OC's dancing, and that's when I realized that I didn't really know any precolonial dances. Yikes! Because my story is set in precolonial times (well, inspired by precolonial culture at least), consider this artwork an AU.
I have some good news! My submission to this year's Philippine Speculative Fiction anthology was accepted! This means that this year, I will see one of my stories published for the first time!
This book is quite meta-fictional. It's a book about books, about the power of books and the stories they tell. What if books are actually magical objects? And not just in the metaphorical sense?
