Post #77 (Or: November Can't Come Soon Enough)
We interrupt this moment of political righteousness to bring you some important news:
I will be participating in NaNoWriMo 2012.
Unfortunately, I won't be participating with my proposed "rebel" novel (Mabel Wilder), since planning for that project fell to the wayside between school, Script Frenzy, and Right Here Right Now (which will also take a brief hiatus in November). Instead, I have decided to write a piece of semi-speculative fiction, which is not only set in the Philippines but features an all-Filipino cast of characters.
(Breathe easy now, Jeremy; none of these characters will look like you, no matter how hard they try.)
Brief synopsis: Evil creative-writing professor in UP assigns her students to rewrite certain moments in their lives. I can't predict where this story will go - there may be a romance; there may also be a murder - but the title says it all: Cada Veces (Spanish for "every time," and often Tagalized as "kada beses") refers to seeing - and doing - the same mistake over and over again.
Read more about Cada Veces on the NaNoWriMo 2012 site - and if you're also doing NaNoWriMo yourself, don't forget to add me as a writing buddy!
Wish us all luck! :)
