Few days ago when I have posted that I’ll be attending this year’s Philippine Literary Festival and I am so happy that I was able to be part of it 🙂
My weekend was filled with insightful literary discussions, book launches, signings, exhibits, and everything in between, hosted by National Book Store.
It was a 3-Day event which started last August 28 (Friday) until August 30 (Saturday).
It was held at the Raffles Makati.
I was totally clueless of what will be their discussion.
On the middle of the talk, Sir Dean Alfar told us that Nikki is her wife and I was like 😍 #RelationshipGoals
That was the only time when I realized that the word “Writing Fiction: Together and Apart” refers to them as married couple slash excellent writers!
They have discussed some important points like what is good and what is bad in writing fiction as a married couple.
According to them, the GOOD side of it are:
- Healthy Competition
- You win even when you don’t win – meaning, in every competition, one will lose and one will win
And the BAD side of writing fiction together are:
- When one is sick, both are sick 😂
- Spousal Distraction
Their discussion lasted for 1 and a half hour and I have really learned a lot from them! I became more inspired and it was really highly motivating. 😊
My Favorite Spot! 😄
I came at the venue late because of traffic jam and I still have another appointment before that. Anyway, I think what matters most is my thoughts on their discussion 😊
Since I came late, I missed Pammy Godoy’s talk 😔
“There is no moral or immoral book; only bad and good written books.” – Bambina Olivares-Wiser
On the last day of the event, there were several authors who have their book signing.
There were also art exhibits..
and some souvenir items given.
As a conclusion, I really enjoyed that event and I can’t wait for more upcoming Book-related Events ☺
Before I finally end this one, let me take a shot! 📷
