For Janinna πŸ’•

One of my soul sisters sent this prompt to me. And I just wanted to see if I still got it with writing on the fly. I hope this delivered.

***

She is finally silent, though her heavy breaths could still be heard within the stillness of the four walls of their living room. Her watery eyes are cold, determined, angry. She continues to look at him.

Him.

The man she once promised to love forever. The man she once said she’ll grow old together with. The man who held her heart for the longest time.

The man who she fell in-love once.

The same man that she isn’t in-love with anymore.

β€œI’m done,” she quietly says, sitting down on the couch she remembers as the very first furniture they bought together all those years ago. She chuckles bitterly at this realization. β€œI am just so done.” Continue reading “For Janinna πŸ’•”

Prompted Drabbles

I’ve been having a massive writer’s block lately and I haven’t really gotten back my drive to write yet. I know, I know. It’s been MONTHS, goodness. Though there are times when I really REALLY want to write, I feel its urge. My muse is still there but for some reason, I’m having a hard time getting the drive and inspiration to get my pen and paper (or laptop and word document) and just… well, write.

So I took to Twitter and asked some mutuals for writing prompts that would help me get out of my funk, so to speak. I wrote some drabbles in response to that. See/read these drabbles below.

Vita Et Morte: available in the Philippines πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸ‘€ SOON

Hello friends from the Philippines! πŸ˜„πŸ‘‹πŸ»

Just wanted to let you all know that I’m currently in talks with a local publisher there for my book to be available within the Philippines. It would be easier for everyone to get my book via this local publisher if you are having a hard time with Amazon πŸ˜…

It would still have the same price as Amazon, be rest assured. Shipping fees might vary though depending on where you are located in the Philippines.

I will update you all soon! Tell all your family and friends about it too! 😁

Much love! πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›

Vita Et Morte – Finally Published

So… πŸ‘€ I finally did it πŸ™ˆ I finally was able to publish one of my short stories/novellas onto Amazon KDP.

I didn’t know I would be able to do this, but I did. And I’m grateful for those who believed that I could. 😌 You know who you all are. πŸ’›

Please give it a try! Search for “Vita Et Morte” over at Amazon. It’s only $0.99 or free via Kindle Unlimited. 😁

I would also appreciate it if you would also leave a review over at Amazon. It would help boost my book.

Currently working on getting that paperback for this story done, too! Will update you all once I have it printed and ready for release. Thank you all!! πŸ˜˜πŸ’›πŸ€—
