Just Write Just Right

Chips Falling

After nine months and how many days, I ate chips again.This was a decision I made as hastily as I did swearing off chips last year. It’s not an exclusive “no junk foods” anymore pledge, because that category is so wide,… Read More ›

(Non)Writer’s Block

I resolved to write more but I couldn’t. I have these outlines in my head whenever I’m moving: walking, riding a jeepney, eating alone. I am no good writer but years of doing technical writing tailored for diplomatic correspondence made me… Read More ›

Still here.

2011 is zooming by so fast. I can hardly keep up. The first 3 months of the year brought a lot of changes and while they were not all easy, we’re getting by. I have a new office and after… Read More ›
