…ON A FREAKIN’ NEWSPAPER! LIKE OMG!
Okay. First things first, this post is long overdue. An excerpt of my story entitled On the Sidelines got published last March 26, 2017 (Sunday) on the Super Section of the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
To be honest, I didn’t really expect it. I just tried it out (Big thanks to Ms. Mina!) and I had no idea that my submission would be published on that day. I was out the whole day and when I got home, I tried to check the website of Inquirer to know whose story would be featured that day. Ever since Ms. Mina encouraged us to submit for this one, checking out the website every Sunday became a habit already.
Anyhow, long story short, I found out that I got published a little late in the evening. Around 9 pm I think? So yes, I failed to buy a copy of the newspaper. But thanks to the Marketing Department of my office, I got to have a copy of the Super Section the next day. Woohoo!
On the Sidelines was a short story that I wrote for the #WriteBreakUpSongsAbout prompt which was initiated by Ms. Mina. I originally submitted it for release through Buqo but right now, I am giving the story a overhaul and I might be releasing it through Amazon in the near future. For now, you could read the excerpt here.
