Hooray for summer book sales! Finally got the first volume of a local comic (which would be a big help on the post I'm writing on Filipino comics for FONSFAQ Philippines--I'll be posting this soon I promise) and a hardbound, previously owned (but still in really good condition) copy of "Heart-Shaped Box" by Joe Hill, both for less than P200. (I heard that the "Heart-Shaped Box" was pretty good and creepy over all. Is that right?)

Meme time!

How often do you write? Do you have any writing rituals? Say, certain locations, beverages, background music, times of day, target word counts, etc.?

I try to write at least once every week. I used to set target word counts per week (1000 word at least) but found that wasn't really effective for me, so now I just write as much as I can, with less pressure on myself.

Writing rituals? Hmm. I find it easier to type directly instead of writing a draft down first, and I like writing on our dining table. (I think the smell of food inspires me to write, hehe.) I also realized that I am able to churn out more words when I write in the evenings.

One weird writing ritual that I have is sometimes when I'm completely alone, I actually act out scenes from my stories. Reading the dialogue out loud helps them flow more naturally somehow.
