This photo is when I first received my authors copy in late January 2015. I remember being so happy when I was finally able to hold my book in my hand. Something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time. This is the first book of many books I am intending to writing in the future.
I cannot speak for anyone but myself but I think at times writing and getting inspiration can be a challenge. Especially, when your inspiration does not come regularly but in spurts. I think I already said something about this in one of my earlier posts, but I only write or do anything when I have the right inspirations and I am in that right frame of mind which comes whenever it wants to. But, when it does come it can be either a very short spurt of inspiration or sometimes, which this does not happen very often, it can even overflow. Does anyone else have this challenge when it comes to writing?
Anyway, I have noticed that when I am taking a shower this is time when my inspiration usually comes. There has been many occasions where I had to rush out of the shower to write down my jumble ideas and words. Actually, it even happened just yesterday where I received inspiration to write about a certain event that occurs in the second novel I am writing, The Forlorn One. And I stayed up until after 4 a.m. getting all my thoughts together and typing it all down. Of course it does not happen all of the time but it have happened so very often that I am lead to believe this.
My guess is ( and this is only my guess) but I am more susceptible to ideas and inspiration because during this time is when I am the most relaxed. The one thing I enjoy more than food and sleeping is taking a shower. And therefore, I am more open during those times. Though it may seem really weird to say that I get most of my inspiration while I am taking a shower, it is what it is, lol. Or maybe it’s not so weird. Please tell me your thoughts. I think it would be really interesting to know how and when others get their inspirations as well. Would you mind sharing?
I wonder how many of you know about Saba? I’m guessing maybe a handful of people. Even though Saba is an entity of the Dutch Kingdom, I’ve met a lot of people who had no idea that Saba even existed or was even part of the Dutch Kingdom. Poor Saba. But everyone knows St. Maarten of course, lol. Continue reading
Hello, dear friends! As you all may already know, my name is Angie Ignacio. Nice to meet you or as they say in Japanese: hajimemashite/ はじめまして! I am originally from the small Dutch island in the Caribbean called Saba. I am 25 years old and attend college in The Netherlands. I am studying Communication Management and currently in my third year. So almost finished, whew!
I like doing a lot of things although there are times that I overwhelm myself as well. So I may sometimes stop myself and slow down which I have been doing for a while now, lol. Some of the things I do is write poetry whenever I am in the inspirational mood or what I like say “Whenever the mood hits me”. The same goes for my novel writing and song lyrics writing. I need to be in a certain state of mind to achieve all of these things. If I just write without having a purpose for it then it will all be for naught. Continue reading
Hello everyone! As you all may already know, or not, my first poetry book was published on January 8, 2015. I have been waiting for the day when I would get the chance to publish my work and I am really happy. No words can describe how happy I was when it was first published. I will be displaying one poem from my I’m Only Human poetry book called ‘I love you‘.
This poetry book expresses some of the emotions I have experienced growing up and those I have witnessed in others. These emotions may include love, self hate, contentment and more. This is why the title is called I’m Only Human. If you would like to read more of my poems please purchase the book. This book is available in both e-book and printed format. Continue reading
