The writer’s block

For those na nawawalan ng heart (gana) at “moment” na sumulat, don’t be disheartened. Lahat naman dumadaan diyan, kahit ako. We are artists kasi, hindi kasi trabaho kundi passion, vocation ang writing for us. Kung may ilan na mabilis sumulat, eh ganon talaga. Nagugulat din ako minsan sa mga local pubs na halos linggo-linggo ay may new releases.  Kaya some of them appeared as “hilaw” or recycled fro…m previous novels. Mediocre rate.

As artists, we don’t work that way. Hindi mo kahit kailan mapipilit magpinta ang isang pintor kung wala sa wisyo. Kahit 3 araw yan tumitig sa canvass, nada. As writers, ayaw natin iyong mga “instant”, kumbaga sa pagkain, gusto natin full course meal, gourmet. Hindi puwedeng de-lata lang or babanlian mo lang ng mainit na tubig, luto na. Walang sustansya ang ganon, walang laman, walang lasa.

And surely we don’t want that to happen sa mga works natin di ba? Mga anak natin yan. As mothers, kung maaari lang ayaw nating stillborn ang bata, dahil gusto natin fully developed lahat ng organs. Ilang taon kong nilabanan ang “writer’s block” na yan. May 3 years na din ata. hahaha.   Try to get as much stimuli as you can. Read books. Watch movies and series (I suggest to veer away from Asianovelas for now, ok). Kung kaya ninyo, try to watch old movies, local and foreign. Listen to music. Go out. Discover places na puwede ninyong i-incorporate sa mga gawa ninyo.

Huwag tayong maghilahan ng katamarang sumulat. Let’s lift each others up, okay sissies?

Kaya natin to! AJA!

My Favorite Writer strikes again- YARA ALONSO’s second novel will be out soon!

Yara Alonso writes for Bookworms Realm Digital Publishing.  She gave us a taste of her talent when her debut novel,  Cosmopolitan Series 1 : I Believe In A Thing Called Love became available through pay per view and kindle.  Now, she will will be back to enthrall us with another bestseller and one sure excellent tale of love with her second novel (this time far from her usual chicklit genre as she will give us an action drama packed with kilig scenes) Valiant Brotherhood 1 :  Will You Still Love Me (Lester Falcone).

Teaser :

Is there really such a thing as two hearts drawn together bound by destiny?

Julianna Rae. Celebrated multi-awarded actress. Accomplished singer. She wanted to forget a very tragic childhood. She managed to put all the tears and pains behind, until she met…

Lester Duane Falcone. Special Forces Ally. Unprecedented warrior. He lived and will continue to live for his past. His crusade involved avenging a violent childhood. But how would he carry out his plans if one look at the famous Julianna Rae dissolved everything else but his desire to make her all his?

What if fate had a different plan for them? Will they make a memory worth remembering? Or will they forget what each of them struggled to accomplish for years and will succumb to unadultered passion and sizzling romance?
