After lengthy deliberation, I am finally taking the plunge.
No, not that plunge.
It’s time for a change. I am quitting my day job!
I am going to be a full-time writer!
I have decided that I will write a book. I have already in contract with Visprint, Inc., the publisher of the widely successful Bob Ong, author of “ABNKKBSNPLAko” and “Stainless Longganisa” among others.
Besides the articles that I have already written on this blog that will be adapted into a book (title: Ang Pagbibinata ng Butiking Walang Dingding), I will also venture on writing fictions.
Why fiction? What qualifications do I have to write this genre?
Consider my resumé:
1. Wrote a book report in high school about an obscure and unheard book, which of course I completely made up. I got an A for the report. Not bad, right?
2. Wrote a case study in Social Science while in college. It is about the struggles of a social deviant in our society, that I interviewed and followed. Except that, that person is non-existent. A fictitious character! I also got an A for it.
3. Published a research paper in medical school about the ill effects of holding a fart, and the benefit to health of letting your gas out unabashed. Of course, the science that back this study is full of air! Sorry for the pun, it is intended. The study was published in a major scientific paper.
So there, I’m fully qualified to be a fiction writer.
And lastly, this article is a just figment (though some may be true?) of my wild imagination.
Happy April Fool’s Day!
Keep dreaming – it may just come true for you. I’v been unlucky…I keep dreaming I hit the big one at Lotto. So far my biggest win is an $8 return on a ticket that cost me $5 grrrr.
Yes, according to Aerosmith: “dream on, dream until your dreams come true…”
