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! 🙂 

Love, Stella
