I just feel so happy right now.
“Maps”. First Prize for Poetry, Palanca Awards.
I posted the news elsewhere first (Twitter and Facebook) and immediately got a ton of love. Thank you so much for all the kind words. The show of support was just overwhelming. I can be quite unkind to myself and to my words, so I appreciate it when people take the time to message me to say that they like what I write, and that I should write more.
“Maps” should be uploaded on the Palanca website soon, and I hope you can read it and give me your comments. :)
