Blessed Bliss

bliss blows
blessings, breathes
so sweet mist of
joy to hearts
hurting, like
frozen buds
waiting for
warmth of
spring, coming
with the weightless
strands of
white dandelion
dancing, feel
the rhythm
of my patient
fingers, tap, tap,
tapping, bliss,
come, be
my blessing.

BLOG-A-VERSARY: Agony turns into Bliss


After a year of taking that leap of faith to end my AGONY, now I feel pure BLISS. It was all worth it. – rosemawrites

It was August 28, 2014 when I first published A READING WRITER’s first post, Agony.

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” – Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

My first readers know that I am Journalism graduate who really want to chase that elusive dream of being a writer.

A year after I started this blog, I can now call myself a WRITER. A PR writer, yes. Not a newspaper writer, yes. But I am now living the dream that I thought was not possible.

(Sorry for getting too sentimental, guys!)

I am just so happy to have this blog and to have those more than 100 followers. Yeps. I know 100 followers is not a big thing, but I am still thankful for that.

As my way of looking back on my blogging journey, expect more BLOG-A-VERSARY posts on the coming days!

It was such a great feeling to overcome that AGONY. But it was the best feeling to know a lot of book bloggers who I can consider as my virtual friends. It’s just pure BLISS!

And now, I am nominated for Liebster award, an award to be given by my fellow bloggers. I’m giddy! I am just a ‘newborn baby’ blogger and it is really a surprise to know that my words are noticed. It is an additional bliss when I saw my name after all those bloggers that are far more experienced in blogging than me. So thanks a lot paperjasmine! ~

Here are the questions I was asked:

I have a lot of favorites actually and mostly they are written by my favorite authors,  Mitch Albom  and  Nicholas Sparks. I will name one novel for each (this is hard!), for Sparks it’s Message in a Bottle and for Albom it’s The Time Keeper.

2. Do you read poetry? If so, who is your most admired poet?

Poetry isn’t really my cup of tea but I have read some sonnets written by William Shakespeare.

3. What makes you do the thing you love the most, be it writing or anything else?

Faith and love make me do thing that I am fond of which are reading, writing and singing.

4. What song lyrics mean the most to you?

“If I have you.. I have everything. But without You.. I have nothing.” – Always Enough by Kari Jobe

5. Books or films?

Books. (Don’t judge the book by its movie. 🙂 )

6. Who is your favourite Harry Potter character? (assuming you have one…If you don’t, just your favourite fictional character, or even historical hero, etc).

Sorry but I am not really a fan. 🙂 For my fictional character,  I love Alice of Twilight Saga. She’s just some compose and demure yet she’s powerful and adorable as well.

7. What’s your favourite book cover?

That would be the cover of Have a Little Faith: a True Story.

8. Have you ever read manga? If not, will you ever?

Not yet. I think I will read the Manga version of my favorite Korean series, Endless Love Winter Sonata.

9. What is something you always take everywhere with you?

My phone because it has my music and my books.

10. What is your favourite adaptation of a book?

You mean movie adaptation right? It’s the Breaking Dawn Part 2. That is the ONLY movie than is better than the book.

11. If you could be anywhere right now, where would it be?

In Jeju Island in Korea. 🙂
