And then, there were these...
Sometimes, I create special series of stuff that form a thematic framework for my writing assignments or for my own personal chuva. Thought of gathering them here, for easier reference.
Feel free to share.
This is the soundtrack of your lez lovelifeA Valentine month special (February 2012) for POC Pinoy LGBT channel, interspersing song lyrics in nonfiction narratives with slightly fictionalized events, a technique I often use since I began my literary career in the late '90s. The idea was to chart the evolution of a love's journey, but not necessarily tracking one story alone.
Trivia: I got the inspiration for this while waiting for my flight to Singapore, to meet the inspiration of my current love status. And well, alam na!
Status: Love hanging
Status: Love hoping
Status: Love found
Status: Love lost
Why 89Since I was away during the crucial months prior to the May 2010 elections, I decided to help campaign for my partylist in the best way I know how: blogging.
As I wrote in the footer then: Why 89 is a seven-part series of creative nonfiction narratives I will write as a countdown to the upcoming May 10 elections in support of my partylist, Ang Ladlad.
Of course, today, it's now known solely as Ladlad. And yes, I will still be supporting when they will run in 2013. Hey, so should you. Read up why. Still relevant.
