After Deadlines is a logbook of personal essays, notes, and snapshots of this journalist who is on a long break to wander and explore the world. A former reporter of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, the author quit her job to do what she has been wanting to do: to travel. She named the blog After Deadlines, thinking that the only thing constant in a journalist’s life is a deadline. After meeting those deadlines, she takes things slow to breathe and take a break.
While it has been a constant struggle for her to maintain a blog so to keep those which weren’t put out to be printed, this hopefully compels her to write more often, not just the usual stories she submits to the news desk, but more of the personal ones.
Writing is fun and writing is improving. And, she shall remain a student of writing, no matter what, as the sources of stories to be written and recorded grow in abundance.
Through this, she also hopes to plough more stories, probably to move and inspire people to take action, or at least share the contagion of happiness brought by the beautiful things we encounter every day.
