We listened to their tales of how they started writing and the inspiration for their works, answers on how to overcome depression, writer’s block, and other hurdles, and their opinions about literature, writing, and career choices.
Fighting the water has left me tired. Many times, I would rather that the current take me wherever. But I know where I want to go, where I have to be.
While I am sure that I also bought it to be used for an English class, I forget which class. Although I do remember sharing the book with classmates who smiled and laughed while they read the book, specially during those moments when there was a lull in the discussion.
Anvil Publishing Inc. is a local publisher that has been producing books since 1990. They have close ties to National Bookstore Inc., the largest bookstore and office supplies chain in the country. Anvil is the creator of a number of the textbooks that my schools used. Besides the almost 2,000 (and counting) titles they have, they also have gained the title of “Publisher of the Year” eleven times from the Manila Critics Circle.
My eyes darted across the whole room. Because it was practically empty, I had a better look at their décor.

While standing in the middle of the crypt, looking at end to end, I frustratingly searched for signs of the legendary tunnel that led to a church in the province. But the dim lights left me guessing.
Have you ever listened to a song and thought it was a winner? Some months ago, a friend posted “Monumento”, a creation of veteran composer Jungee Marcelo and is one of his two entries for this year’s Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs, a songwriting and music video competition.

Your book made me curious about that particular verse, causing me to read the whole chapter, and eventually the whole book. But that wasn’t the only effect it had on me. The cavalcade of seraphim and nephilim introduced me to the world of angelology, symbology, and numerous Christian legends. And I thought only the secular world had folklore.
And while it’s not as thick, it proved to be a challenge to open while inside a packed train. Despite the struggle, I have enjoyed reading it. And the quizzical looks I received were quite a bonus!
