Last Sunday, I had my very first Radish Live Chat for my story The Billionaire’s Game. It was so much fun! I didn’t expect so many readers would be there from places where it was either too early in the morning or too late at night. Thank you so much.
The Live Chat was exclusively for readers who read my latest update of TBG, chapter 56 “Tea and Company”. As I promised, I held a Radish coin giveaway. I posted eight questions about TBG and picked the best answers. I said the winners would get 10 coins each, but after giving it some thought, I changed my mind and awarded them 12 coins instead.
Q1. What do you think happens in the next episode?
Obviously I already knew what was going to happen in chapter 57, but I thought it would be fun to find out what the readers were speculating.
So we’re doing a Live Chat on the Radish app at noon (Manila time) on Sunday, September 16. Everyone who joins the chat has a chance to win coins. I’ll explain how!
Guess what? I have a scheduled chat on Sunday, September 16 and the following Sunday on September 23. Yes you and I will be able to chat right after I post a new chapter of my story The Billionaire’s Game.

What is a blurb? A blurb is a short text that is usually found at the back of novels that gives a potential reader an idea of what the book is about. In Wattpad, it’s the story description.
I’ve decided my free writing-related posts on Patreon will be going up on Wednesday every week. Writing Wednesday! It did not get off to an auspicious start, as I barely made it yesterday — I published the post five minutes to midnight. Oh boy.
I didn’t want to wake up one day and find out that the platform I’ve worked hard to cultivate and get followers to is suddenly gone and there was no way my readers could find me. Twitter and Facebook and Wattpad are owned by companies — we have no control over their business decisions. But my website? I have control over that.
It’s Day 2 of National Novel Writing Month! Have you been able to hit your daily writing targets? If so, congratulations.
It’s Day One of National Writing Month! Are you excited to start? Did you stay up till midnight last night to start writing? In this episode I give suggestions on what activities you might want to consider giving up for the month of November to help you achieve your 50,000 words. Plus some things I think you shouldn’t give up, not even for NaNoWriMo.
Today’s episode is outlining. This is not a lesson on how to outline, no. But I do try to argue the merits of outlining, and how a pantser (like me!) can ease into the process of working from an outline.
