On being a contributor..

Being a seventeen year old writer(then) who wants to become a great writer is tiring to be honest. I have to find readers, people who are actually interested, then I have to balance school and my dream. It's a great thing that my degree program is related to my dream, or else everything might go kaput. Anyway, this year has been awesome so far, and I can almost taste my dream coming into a reality. I've been guest blogging, publishing my works wherever I could, and slowly these efforts have been paying off. I have been chosen as a contributor for two magazines!

The first one, is a local magazine here in the Philippines. This magazine features Eastern Visayas, which is where I came from. It features those who came from our group of islands and made a very obvious footprint on the big world. It tells stories and shows people that everyone's dream can come true. So here's my first article on said magazine which was published last April:


It was really a great boost to my dream, because they wanted me to write in the magazine again! So just this October, the new issue came out:


And it's really exciting! The second magazine that asked me to contribute was called LDR Magazine. So far, this is a new mag for long distance couples. For those of you who have read my article on long distance couples (read here), it was actually the one that attracted the editors to my blog! And so I've been asked to write articles, and when they updated their site, I saw it! (read here)


So it's really exciting! Now that I'm eighteen, I can enter more blogs and magazines because I'm legal :) I do hope I could reach my dreams one day! So I hope some of you could help me achieve my dream of being a full-on writer by either subscribing or recommending me to those interested! 

I also want to thank all of YOU who read my blog. Without you, well, I'd still be writing with less than fifty views per day. <3

  7. Yay! Congratulations!! I can see you becoming a big author in your own right. You write some amazing work and that's not just me saying so. Your stories really reel in the reader and I'm always left wanting to read more. The first book of short stories you publish you need to let me know because I want a copy.
