WRITING 101: Questions and Answers

Writers are interpreters of their minds own language. – rosemawrites

Blogging University’s WRITING 101 is now on its Day 3! I am overwhelmed by those new bloggers that I met/read for the past two days. This is indeed fun!

Day 3: One-word inspiration

Prompts come in many different forms. Sometimes, a single word is all you need to get your mind’s wheels turning. Here are six words:

TREASURE

REGRET

HOME

LOVE

UNCERTAINTY

SECRET

Here’s my take on today’s task:

On Treasure: How much is your worth?

No one is worthless. No one has no treasures. Because life itself is priceless. No matter how rich you are, you cannot bring back life once your dead.

You may not have the material treasures of the world. I may not have billions of pesos and assets and golds. But that doesn’t mean I am living a treasure-less life. 

On Regret: When will you try?

After a lot of rejections, I have learned that life is really about taking risks. I have learned not to be afraid of failure because not trying means compiling a lot of life’s regrets. 

I have been rejected, yes. I graduated with honours but a lot of Editors said no to me. I have been jobless for the first seven months after my college graduation.

I was hurt but when I look back, I can say that I will never regret those failures, because at least I tried. 

On Home: Where do you belong?

I have a big family, I have six siblings and I am the eldest. We have an imperfect yet so happy home. We are not rich but it is pure bliss to have a family that you can always call your home. 

On the other hand, I have a friend that made is not as blessed with a good family relationship as me. But she was able to show me that family is not the only type of ‘home’ that you can belong to.

Home is where your heart is. It should be where you feel comfort and utmost happiness. It can be your friends, your co-workers or even yourself.

On Love: Who holds your heart?

Love is such an overrated word. A lot of people have said a looot about this four-letter word. So what would I say?

I have been romantically in love with my boyfriend for more than five years now. But aside from its cheesy and overly sweet meaning, I have learned that love requires hard work. It is a choice that you made everyday.

As Nicholas Sparks said,

On Uncertainty: Where to go?

It is normal to fear that ‘unknown’ because it is comforting to know that you’re in control. Life is not like that, though.

I have learned that it is important to plan but it is equally imperative to brace yourself for surprises. Because sometimes, it is the uncertain events that make us the best versions of ourselves.

Sometimes, I have experienced that myself, life’s sudden twists and turns will brought us to our dream. We may be confused at first, but God’s plan will eventually be clear.

So let go and be brave.

On Secret: What are you hiding?

I am not good in secrets, both in making and keeping them. Maybe that is because I don’t think I should have one.

This doesn’t mean that I hold grudge against people who have a lot of secrets. It’s just that I am a believer of transparency and honesty.

I am done! 🙂

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

  1. On regret, I’m reminded of a quote, “it’s better to regret what you’ve done, than to regret what you haven’t,” (may be not the exact words.) Awesome choice of quotes too. I might be your opposite in making and keeping secrets though. Loved your post.
