For decades, as literary editor, I have followed the growth of our creative writing in English. In my Solidaridad Bookshop, half of my stock consists of Filipino books written in English and in the native languages.
I actually started writing it because I was inspired by my own personal growth.
Writing is like gardening. Planting, watering, and weeding are not enough. You have to prune if you want growth.
Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together.
James Cash Penney
Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader - not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon.
E. L. Doctorow
