If you have read a few of my works here, you would probably notice that I write at midnight. I just think my brain works harder during this time of the day. I’m not entirely sure of what I want to tell but I just realized that I feel more authentic writing in English. I tried making a draft in Tagalog but I felt foreign after reading my own work. Not that it’s entirely bad. I also think that it can be a way for me to apply Roland Barthes’ concept in his work – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Death_of_the_Author
Now that I am having this blog for months already, I like to expand the purpose of making one. At first, I thought of this as my online journal. This may sound creeepy but it can be a way of leaving a legacy when I’m gone. People can read my works and it will always be on the internet. But now, I’d like to use this platform to make people feel that they are not alone. To be honest, that is is my ultimate purpose why I wanted to be a writer for films. How nice will it be when people can personally relate to the movie that they are watching through the screen?
Anyway, that is still a gloomy possibility in the future for me. I just shared it so I can go back to this post if the universe aligns the stars for me. Three more days and this gruesome year will end. I want to let you know that this wordpress account has been my safe space. I will be here for a very long time, that’s for sure. I hope we can all have calmer 2021. And I promise to write more next year.
Advanced Happy New Year!
