Writing 201: Trust

Day 3 is here — and so are questions of trust, acrostics, and internal rhymes.

Seriously guys. This is SO embarrassing. When I signed up for Writing 201, I thought I could complete and publish my works right before the day ended. I was wrong.

I got busy on work, and we’ve been time tracked. Due to that, I wasn’t able to focus on the assignments. I wasn’t able to think about what to write.

Anyway, I had some spare time a while ago, and I grabbed the opportunity to write my entry for the third day of Writing201. I’ll still answer the prompts, even if the classes are already over.

I hope you’ll find some spare time to read and criticize my new poem, as a prompt to third day’s assignment.

Word: Trust
Form: Acrostic
Device: Internal Rhyme


Back on the pack, waiting while whining;
Those memories and lyrics were totally depressing.
Singing, dancing, playing, and sleeping;
Those joyful moments were instantly rewinding.

Restless hearts, fearless thoughts;
That unimaginative feeling you have taught.
Finding peace, searching keys;
Trying to move on from you sweetest kiss.

On that day, I might said ‘bye’ with a smile;
Yet the pain I hide might linger for a while.
I’ll go and you’ll definitely know,
How I cared and loved and told you so.

Keeping stuff, losing love;
Trying to convince myself I’m your only one.
Now I know you’re not always right;
And that I held on your promise too tight.

Everything’s gonna change this time;
Me on this corner and you’re at her side.
It wouldn’t change how I felt for you;
Even if you don’t feel the same way too.

Now, after two years that quickly passed;
I’m still waiting for answers to clear my mind.
I’m still broken and you’re answers will fix me;
Even if you’ll never be with me, like we thought it should be…



Writing 201: Journey

On the menu today: Journeys, limericks, and alliteration.


Stepped on a stone, caught in a storm;
Actually don’t know how to follow the norm.
Should I do what I want?
Or listen to their rant?
I’ll just sing my favorite song.

I wish I could sleep soundly in a starry night.
Forget all those tragedies with all my might.
Can I flee from their glances?
Must I grab that second chance?
I’ll just call my courageous knight.

It’s never easy to live my life.
No matter how hard you’ve got to try.
All those choices.
All those noises.
I think you’d rather die.


Writing 201: Water

Today, let’s write a poem about water. And/or a haiku. And/or use a simile.

First and foremost, I am so sad ’cause I can’t join the Commons. Maybe because I registered a different email from the email I use with this WordPress Blog. Hmm. Can I still join the chat? I hope someone could help. Thank you!

Well, this is the first time that I’ll be writing a haiku, and I hope you’d give your thoughts about it.


Your Love

Fresh, sweet, and lovely.
The love you gave overflows.
Like river water.


Why you are Alone on Valentine’s Day!

Another well-written post from the Opinionated Man!

I believe one person here needs to read this. Hahaha! If only we’re close enough, I’d send the link to her. LOL!

No date on Valentine’s Day? Why don’t you ask your parents out? Take your family on a picnic or a movie time. You don’t necessarily need a boyfriend/girlfriend to be happy during the Heart’s Day.

Or, you can just sleep the whole day and the whole night. XD


Blogging 101: Make Your “About” Page Irresistible

Today’s assignment: create and publish your About page, and adapt it for a widget on your home page.

Hooray for the second week of the love month! Guess this is the right time to give love on my about page, yes? Hahaha!

I wanna hear your opinions about it. You can read it by clicking here.

I just gave a simple description about me; snippets about what I want, what I do, and who I am. Well, my posts will reveal more about me, so I won’t give much details in here.

I posted that photo on my about page ’cause that’s the best photo I have in my gallery about a huntress. Hmm. Maybe I need to ask Google images or Pinterest about a huntress who looks like an owl. Hehehehe! That suits who I am, and the work that I have.

I’ll be looking forward to hearing your comments, good or bad. Thank you so much!


Blogging 101: Identify Your Dream Audience

Today’s Assignment: publish a post for your dream reader, and include a new-to-you element in it.

Welcome to my page! Whoever you are, I want you to expect something big, great, and entertaining. I want you to think of me as a great writer that you’ll be following and you’ll be loving for the rest of your life. I want you to start smiling as you know you are special to me, and I am so thankful for additional stat you could give me. I want you to continue reading, and unfortunately, get disappointed.


Anyway, I started reading Heartland written by Neil Cross. This is the first time that I read an autobiography, and I can feel the heavy emotions of the first chapters. Hmm. I hope there would be a turn in the emotions of the story, or I think I won’t be able to finish this. I’m not pretty patient at reading novels with sad beginnings.

While reading, I’ve been entertaining myself with some upbeat songs. One of my new favorites, Lips are Moving, plays again and again in my playlist. I guess I could memorize that song immediately. Hehe!

PS: I don’t know if my post makes any sense. Hahah! Anyway, I wanna call those who ever read Heartland. What can you say about the story?

PPS: Do you have a Spotify account? What’s your favorite song or favorite playlist? :D

I highly appreciate responses.


Blogging 101: Say Hello to the Neighbors

Today’s assignment: follow five new topics in the Reader and five new blogs. A blog is just a diary unless there’s a community — start building yours.

First of, I would like to greet myself a “Happy anniversary!” Haha! It’s my second year anniversary in this company, and I honestly don’t like the feeling of being here for that long. It was exhausting. Every shift was very draining. It’s time to move on. I just hope I could find a job as soon as possible. Well, wish me luck!

Back to Blogging101…

Here were five topics I followed today and why I followed them:

1. Writing

Yes, this is a general keyword, and you hope I could’ve searched for something specific. However, it’ll be easier for me to find blogs I could read, with varying genre and literary type. When I checked some of the blogs today, some were about poetry, stories, book reviews, and many more.

2. Poetry

Something specific, right? I admit; I can easily relate to a poem than to a prose. It’s nice to see poets and their passion for poetry as they post their blogs. Looks like I will be a busy bee when I start checking out poems in here.

3. Short Stories

Another specific topic. Who would have thought that a romance novelist would follow blogs under short stories? Let’s just it’s easy for me to get inspiration to short stories than reading a novel. I could easily think of possible twist and turns in my plot as I check out stories, whatever its genre would be.

4. Baking

Unfortunately, I’m not a baker. It just happened that I want to learn, and i wish I could find blogs that could teach me how to.

5. Cooking

This is my current obsession. I am really addicted to cooking these days, and I know it’s time for me to get new recipes. I’m pretty sure bloggers have more ideas than recipe books out in the market. Heheh!

I’d like to spend more time checking out blogs before I follow them. For the mean time, let me share five blogs that I love visiting, though I never leave any message or sign that I was there. Hahah! (Now you know that I am a silent reader, fellas!)

1. The Last Reader

She was one of those bloggers who joined the BookBlogWriMo last November. I love how she writes her reviews, and how she creates her articles. I’ve been visiting her page from time to time, especially when I plan to buy another book.

2. Interesting Literature

A blog about everything and anything about literature. They even blog about history of words and author’s biographies. I bookmarked one of their post; the one about online resources to improve writing.

3. The Fickle Heartbeat

I love their tagline! The blog talks about different situations of love and relationships. I just wonder if the author was a teenager, or an adult who learned all those lessons based on his/her experience.

4. Romance Novels for the Beach

I mentioned that I was a romance novelist. Their post gives me ideas about steamy scenes, even if I know I still can’t write one properly. I’m getting some ideas from their post, especially if I’m starting to write another romance article.


The author is a very nice guy. I always look forward to read his post since I really learn something from it, especially when he talks about money.

So that’s it! I hope you’ll be able to find blogs that you’ll love, and I hope you’ll learn from them, too. Have a great day!
