This was not the post that I had intended to write this week. Rather, this is the post I intended to write at the end of the month. However, given the circumstances I have currently going on in my life and in the general world, I find it wisest to call the shot now rather than later: Continue reading
August has come and gone, and it was a month that had a lot of meaning. On one hand, for many people of the Asian American community – myself included – it was a celebration of the releases of numerous films where Asian Americans were the stars of their own stories and/or were taking charge from behind the camera. On the hand, this month had an added level of depth to it for me, as it was truly a busy time both as an author and a playwright. Continue reading
While a post like this would be more so expected on any other day, it’s otherwise atypical for me to make announcements like this on a Saturday. But given the magnitude of what I’m about to reveal, I feel that these two announcements deserve the spotlight of my regular Saturday blog post.
So August is actually going to be quite a month for me as both an author and a playwright. To be able to be present in different events where I get to embrace these identities of mine in the same month really uplifts me, even amidst the struggles I’ve been experiencing as a writer recently. At this time, I’m going to go ahead and break down just what you can anticipate from me this month: Continue reading
Maybe this is happening because I made the decision in indefinitely put my third novel on hiatus. Perhaps it’s also that I’m working on a screenplay right now that has me thinking in the scheme of what I would want to write in the form of prose. Continue reading
This is something I’ve noticed in recent time. With the stories and short plays that I have written within the past year or so, I’ve noticed how some of the subject matter I’ve been exploring is the same that I have touched on before in previous works. I’m not saying I’m retelling a story I’ve told before, but rather, I’m revisiting the same themes and topics. Continue reading
The title alone speaks for itself as to what this post is about, and to be quite frank, this has not been an easy decision for me to make.
Since my update about my third novel from back in January, I unfortunately still haven’t made a lot of progress with writing it. My most recent update on it is that I’ve managed to hammer out a fairly long chapter in it – and by recent, I mean that this was a little over a month ago. Continue reading
So you might notice my homepage looks slightly different as of recently. You might see how there is a button on the right hand side that says “Buy Me a Coffee.” If you click on that button, that will take you directly on over to my brand new Ko-fi page. Continue reading
Yet another hashtag has emerged throughout the past week where we social media navigators are encouraged to look at our favorite films and/or TV shows and see if we can find ourselves in them, to some capacity or another. That hashtag is #FilmStruck4. Started up by @FilmStruck on Twitter, this hashtag is to celebrate the four films that “define you.”
In the past, I’ve gotten to share with you all three fictional characters that I can describe myself in and the first times I saw me. This latest hashtag is all about storytelling, so you know I had to participate. Here are four films that define me:
I filled out another journal last night. This is an occurrence that is always set to happen the minute I put pen to paper with any journal I start. At the same time, it’s one where each time it happens, it leaves me feeling both fulfilled and constantly wondering. Continue reading
It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post centered around my birthday, and with my birthday having just happened yesterday, I figured that I reflect on that. Now normally I try to avoid writing about myself unless it’s within context of the particular subject matter being addressed for the day, but with what is going on right now, I feel that now is a wise time.
