People tell you to travel and expand your mind. Until you actually expose yourself to new places, meet different people and face all sorts of different situations, you’re really quite limited as a creative individual.
I grew up in Manila and I firmly believe when I moved to the U.S. it changed me for the better. When you move from a town with a homogenous population to one as diverse as the Bay Area, your horizons expand. I thought a continental move across the Pacific Ocean meant this particular trip to the Midwest really wouldn’t surprise me that much but I’m happy to report, I was wrong.

Hello, welcome back! Thanks for sticking it out during the short break. My trip was quite eventful and a much needed breather from the intensive hours on this book.

I really hope I’m not allergic to my tablet pen.)
On a better note, YEY! Chapter 2 begins! The ghosts actually interact with Bree! That’s what everyone’s here for, right? Earlier drafts didn’t even have ghosts shenanigans until Chapter 3 which is way too late in the book for me so I’m quite relieved I eventually managed to get it this way.
I think most people number their pages all the way through the book. (i.e. pages 1-180) That’s what I would have done but because I had to revise constantly, I found this was a simpler way of keeping track of the pages on my computer. I hope it’s not confusing.
Lastly, I’ve been looking into more blogging techniques so you might see some more creative blog posts in the future. I hope you get a kick out of them.
Enjoy the new pages!

This was quite fun and I hope to be able to do the same for other artists and future finalists.Read More»
