I am a filipino writer, and I have walked astray from my calling since from when I was in high school. Writing is my calling, and when the chance was given for me to respond to this calling and take the road which will take me to it came, I squandered the chance. I did not respond to this calling, and trudged the road that led me so far away from it. Because of this, my soul was lost, and I became a zombie. I was breathing but not alive. I walked astray from the very thing that makes my heart beat, and so in very endeavor that I did, I failed. I became nothing, and was almost non-existent, till I came to decide to take back the chance I squandered, go back to where this death of mine started, find my soul, and follow the road to where the reason my heart beats.

NBDB Seminar for Authors; Market at Witman Publishing Co. (H.K.) Ltd.by noid (English | Writing | Market | Publishing | Job | Paying)
Got a tip from a fellow writer that the National Book Development Board will be holding a seminar for authors at their office at UP Diliman tomorrow November 15, 2005. Called them up even if it was already six in the evening, and luckily Ms. Asena Galang of their research department was kind enough to entertain my call. It turns out that there will be two seminars. One will be about Print/Publish On Demand to be given by CentralBooks, and the other by McGraw-Hill (she was not sure of the details). Although the seminar is for registered authors only of the NBDB, I might still drop by tomorrow morning -- the seminars are scheduled at 9 o'clock and 1 pm, but Ms. Galang said that usually they start at 10. Ms. Galang also suggested that I tell the organizers that I will register later so that hopefully I can be accommodated.
