WRITER@WORK

Basically, I’ve always been a writer at work. Why? I started writing at the age of 13 and haven’t stopped ever since. I see life with everything in it – people and all – as interesting stories to tell. In fact, I often wake up in the morning with the same anticipation to write something, anything.

            What do I do? I’m a freelance writer and a freelance translator. I’m also a freelance interpreter and a part-time English teacher. I’ve got my first novel published locally in my own native tongue and I’m currently working on for more of others. Sounds a lot, eh? Well, I’ve got to keep moving on, working hard and all. Besides, I don’t just take care of me. I take care of my family and best friends too!

"MONDAY MORNING CRAZINESS"
3/5/2012

I woke up this morning,
an urban zombie half awake.
I had no idea what I was thinking.
I only feared showing up late.

My fragmented thoughts
scattered and regrouped
like magnetic marbles on the floor,
as I headed toward that door.

What did I see?
Oops, I made a mistake!
I showed up way too early.
Now I'm rewarded with this long break.

Heh.
What a strange way
just to start today.
What else can I say?

Maybe I'm a workaholic.
A lot can make me fretful and tick.
With caffeine-fuelled energy,
I haven't been sleeping well lately.

Now I'm going to relax a bit
before the real hours of my shift...
