Recognized by Giants

Today, John Nery praised my writing. The Chief of Reporters at the Inquirer, Tine Sabillo, said I was her favorite. Just like Mary Ann Moll said, I am a great writer. And still, there is no book to my name. My MA thesis was not published. And still, I have no major printed work to take pride on. Perhaps this is about to change. When giants acknowledge you this way, one is meant for literary greatness. And so I will persevere. Stand on the shoulders of giants. Be a giant myself.
