TIPS ON BECOMING A BETTER WRITER – DAY 11

It’s amazing what you can do when you set your mind into it. Even with a small aberration yesterday, I made my goal. I was able to put in 1,899 words, making my total 21,737 words so far. I was too exhausted when I typed in the last word but I’m proud of myself for pushing myself.

The tip for today is:

11. Write what you enjoy reading.

I enjoy reading historical fiction and so I write historical fiction. I enjoy WWII stories especially those that happened in the Pacific Theater. The market is saturated with stories in the Atlantic Theater but not much were written about the Pacific Theater especially in the Philippines. I have heard numerous stories about events there during the war but never seen them in print. It was the main reason I wrote “BAHALA NA (Come What May)”. Talking to local people who were witness to the events was a better source of information and so the stories I heard from my elders became the inspiration for “BAHALA NA (Come What May)”.

My book suggestion for today being it as Veteran’s Day is Day of Infamy by Walter Lord. It is an account of what happened in Pearl Harbor that led to WWII in the Pacific. It was the same day the second Pearl Harbor happened. This time it was in the Philippines and it was a part of the story in “BAHALA NA (Come What May)”.

Day of Infamy by Walter Lord

I salute our veterans who fought for us so we can have the freedom we enjoy today.
