Hi, my name is Erin and I'm a weaver of words.

Weeks have already turned into months and I've still been constantly ravaging for more writing gigs in every way I could. Ever since I decided to do work from home, it's been a struggle for me to keep a steady job. Even though there is a lot of editorial opportunities online, not all of the offers are lucrative and some simply just don't compensate with the skills that I could offer. Some clients change their minds in the middle of the project, and sometimes, I change my mind, too.

Pursuing a career in the writing field is not easy at all, especially for me because it is not related to my educational background. This is why I really need to prove that I can stand on the biggest life-changing decision in my life.

All I could do is to take things slowly — but surely.

Over the past three years (or so), I've already been writing for different publications, both online and print, some are paid while some are pro bono. For now, my aim is to build a good writing portfolio and just get my name out there. I'm taking my time because I have a good feeling that all of my hard work will pay off in the end.

What most successful people say is true: great things happen to those who actually work for them to happen. And although now's not yet the end and I'm not the greatest at what I do, I'm really grateful that I've been given the opportunity to speak my mind through written words. Aside from my writing jobs here and there, I am also a regular contributor of feature articles and short write-ups to the following publications:

1. Feature Shoot, where I interview high-esteemed photographers and feature their best works.
2. Lost at E Minor, where I feature stuff that I'm personally interested in.
3. When in Manila, where I cover concerts, promote local brands, and hold giveaways.

I also write for other platforms occasionally.

Today, I am happy to share that after publishing a couple of my articles, Shooting Film invited me to officially join their writing team. And since it's been a while since my last analogue photography series, I am really looking forward to contribute again to my favorite subculture.

On top of all these, I am also brewing a personal project that I've meaning to do since I stopped working for Lomography Magazine. (That's a hint!) It took me a long while to gather my own thoughts about it (and brainstorm alone!) but what got me really started was when I asked myself the usual-but-effective question, "If not now, when?"

I will be launching this project very, very soon and I really hope that people (who I love, used to worked with, read my works, and you) would support it! I'm really excited to share it with everyone.
