Her MC’s Backstory

Stayed up till the wee hours again, CUTTING. Self isn’t sure when her eyes finally closed, but she must have been writing up till the last, for all the lights in her room were on when she opened her eyes this morning. Also, she’s wandering around like a ghost.

Below, a passage she worked on last night, which she decided to keep.

Early Map of the Philippines

Other memories he would have been happier to relinquish: Fiesta. Mantilla. Rioja. His mother’s admonishments. He would surrender to these memories helplessly, sometimes angrily. It would have been better for him if he had not, upon seeing the rivers on Isla del Fuego, immediately thought of the Segura and its esteros. If he had not been reminded, upon seeing a cluster of white rocks, of the Piedras Blanca in the foothills of Murcia. If he had not, on seeing the native women, always thought of Dorotea and her thick, black hair, the weight of it in his hands.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
