Writing Advice

As you may be aware I recently published a first attempt at writing by a young man called NicNac. He contacted me again over this weekend and asked me for some advice about writing. He explained that his problem was that he had a collection of jumbled thoughts and had difficulty in organizing those thoughts on paper.

Blogger Recognition Award

I received a pleasant surprise when I opened up my emails this morning. My good friend Carol had nominated my blog ExpatinBacolod.com for a “Blogger Recognition Award.” It must be said now that I have read and understood the rules that it strikes me as being a blogger version of the chain letter. Having said that, I do appreciate there is value in linking to other blogs and so I corrected my ‘attitude’ and thought why not? And I can’t be anti-social all my life!

Writing is Fun

I recently made the acquaintance of a young Filipino man who left a ‘Like’ on my Facebook Page.  His nickname is NicNac.  It turned out we were both members of the same writers Facebook Page. One of those groups where people hang who have interests in common. I discovered that he also lived in Bacolod so he was a neighbor of mine.   Through Facebook Messenger and emails I also found out that he loved to write but maybe he was lacking in confidence.
