into the breach

Well. it looks like I'm really going to be doing this. Why not? It's an exciting challenge, and at the very least it will help me hone my skills and refine my ideas for my first novel. Only thing is, I'm not really sure what my first novel would be.

I just know it will have to be about the Philippines, and I chose the working title Maharlika because I've been thinking lately about the Marcos years, particularly with the release of the documentary "Imelda." I haven't seen it yet, but I've viewed the trailer and all I can say is that life is truly stranger than fiction.

So yeah, thank God for NaNoWriMo and NaNoBlogMo. Whatever happens, I'm here to enjoy the ride.
