[Writing Day] 26. Creation In A Dusty Box

Dusty Box

Seems like I’m back to my stream of consciousness poems. Sometimes it’s good to do different things. (You mean, actually write something in one of your Writing Day posts? Why yes, cynical voice in my head. haha) =)


I’ve kept all my main scribbles since I was 11. Found them all

In a box under my bed tonight. We were clearing out old things

To renew the energy, and I found I could not let go of my old scraps

Of writing. Some, I could, because they were meaningless. Some, I couldn’t.


Nowadays it’s rare to write on paper, we mostly write on cold glass surfaces.

If I have a new idea I write on a scrap of paper, my daily planner, sometimes

The Strength in Honesty – Chapter 1

Strength in Hoesty small versionGenre: Gay Fiction, Male-Male Romance, Comedy

Rating: PG-13

Summary: “I would be unhappy if I lied to myself and forced myself to be different purely for the sake of appearance or the approval of society.”

Angela Norambuena’s first book deals with the profound issue of honesty in modern society, a society that focuses so much on appearances, fitting in and having hundreds of friends on social media.

In this novella, James, 20, an introspective Sociology student wiser beyond his years and Benjamin, 22, barista and part-time Accounting-Arts student, learn the importance of being honest with oneself, with one’s feelings, with one’s tastes, with one’s heart.

They learn to understand how important it is to be true to yourself, despite what others may have to say about how you should live your life and be “normal.” Together they form a strong bond, and after many soy lattes and a few mishaps along the way, their happy friendship blossoms into love.

Length: 9 Chapters, 110 pages approx.
