Work at Home Mom: Writing Offline

The bad news is that it's been almost a month since my last post. Those of you who have been reading here already know why. It's still the same recovery process. Those who are new here, please scroll to my previous posts if you care to read my previous whinings. I don't have to impose my blues on old readers again.

The good news is that I've been doing some writing offline. I finally started actually writing that manuscript for the new project we hope to launch very, very soon. It's still fiction but no longer romance in Filipino. This time I'm writing speculative fiction in English.

I can't say much yet and I can't stay long here, either. I have to ration the creative juices and, apparently, blog writing dissipates the energy somehow. So I'll be writing here only after I've done my creative writing for the day, and will hopefully have enough energy left. Well, today is an exception. I just finished a story yesterday and this is my day off to play around with the plot of the next one.

More good news, though. "Bukal Sa Dibdib," the romance novel I wrote advocating breastfeeding for the Philippine Department of Health, World Health Organization and United Nations Fund for Population Activities, has finally been printed. It is now being distributed for free in communities. Yippeee!
