How are you? ^_^

Hello everyone! I know it has been a while since my last post and it was all about my book coming out soon. Yes, it has been delayed and I am coming to the reasons why. First reason is I’m sure all of you are all aware of by now and that is my battle with my manic depression. Not a good sight, I kid you not. Second reason is, I got married!!!!! I am now officially a MRS! 😀

My husband and I planned our wedding two years in advance but with school, my bouts with MD, finishing my book; updating my blog suffered the consequences.

Our Spring-themed wedding took place last April 18 at Fernwood Gardens in Quezon City. It was a lovely day despite some setbacks and I adored my gown, savored our food, enjoyed our cake, and laughed my heart out. Most especially, I was giddy with the fact that I was finally marrying my best friend, my partner in crime, and my soul’s mate.


Planning the wedding took up most of my time and it is not without its share of tears, sweat, joy, and triumphs. And, I got to meet Matt’s dad from Ohio. The whole Wisen family (Matt’s mom, older sister, brother-in-law, niece, and nephew) wanted to come but circumstances prevented them from doing so. Thanks to the internet, we were able to share our pictures and Same Day Edit Video with them immediately. Looking back, I could definitely say that it was the most unforgettable day of my life so far. But now that it is done I am finally able to focus on my book and I can’t wait to show you a preview! Thanks for your patience and for not leaving me while I was away for a number of months. I truly appreciate it ^_^

Rambling, ranting…whining. Haha

Three months after finishing my poetry novel Unmasked, I still haven’t persuaded my imagination to come back from its exotic vacation. I don’t know, maybe I overworked it and didn’t give it the loving care it needed? What does an imagination need anyway to feel loved? Loads of junk food? Caffeine? Soda? Pint of ice cream? Forgive me for depriving it but I’m getting married in April and I’d like to abstain from all those kinds of food – until after the wedding of course (come on, let’s not kid ourselves, I’m no health buff :P).

It sucks though, to want to work immediately on my graphic novel (which of course I haven’t mentioned here in my blog – curse you rest and relaxation!) but getting distracted by Sims 3 and the growing pile of books I’ve bought and haven’t read. Yeah, I’m banning myself from going into a bookstore for the next 3 months or so – let’s see how long I can keep it up! Haha!

Anyway, as long as I’m not writing I wish my imagination took me with her to Bora Bora or some other exotic place. An alternate dimension perhaps? That would be really cool!


The writing books I’ve read say that there’s no such things as inspiration or a muse but I guess I’m stubborn that way. I bull-headedly cling to my notions of inspiration and at least it did me some good, I was able to make my first ever book. Yay. But how long will it last? Don’t follow my footsteps. Unless you want to write for a week and stare at the wall for the rest of the month, consider yourself warned. Serious writers do not believe in inspiration. There is no such thing as inspiration. Now repeat that 100 more times while I go back to staring at my wall and waiting for my muse to visit me again.
