What’s Good Writing Anyway?

Writing good content is a skill. It takes years to master the craft. William Strunk Jr.’s The Elements of Style tells us to omit needless words and be clear. That’s pretty hard, though, right? How do we know which words, phrases or sentences to delete?

I Want to Fall in Love Again… With Writing

That unadulterated kind of writing. I miss those days when all I care about is plain writing. Scribbles. Marginal notes. Journals. No SEO. No tags, meta tags, and title optimization. It’s free writing. I just finished all my digital marketing projects. It’s now 3:30 AM. So, I told myself. “Decide to write again.”

Fresh Start: Back on Track

The first day of October wasn’t really as good as I expected it. But I chose to be thankful despite these awful surprises. “The best is yet to come,” as the optimists would say; and it’s also the same phrase we – Jesus believers – often declare when things are completely out of our control.

It’s been a while since I updated this blog. I missed writing—that freestyle kind of writing where I just do it for the sake of the craft to satisfy myself. I’ve had enough of SEO, keywords, and metatags (and followers). I’ll go for sincere, transparent, and conversational posts from now on

What 2013 Has Taught Me on My Writing Life

There are many things to be grateful for 2013 that it would take me hours to list them down. Most of all, experience has taught me well as a professional writer. The freelancing industry is an ocean for us—fishes in all sizes—to swim in, and if you don’t know how to, you’ll end up frustrated

The Loneliest Profession Ever

“I have never felt so lonely in my life.” I thought about it three days ago while resting my eyes in the middle of my writing project. I felt it was a long and tedious day. I wasn’t effective (in writing with zeal and passion) compared a few weeks ago. What just happened? I was
