For those who have been following Maine Mendoza, she has always expressed her love for writing. The phenomenal noontime girl-turned-primetime actress has been blogging her random thoughts and personal adventures way before she rose to stardom. If you will remember, Maine is behind the lyrics of Imagine You and Me, the official theme song of her 2016 film with AlDub partner Alden Richards. She has also been vocal about being a fan of romantic novels and poetry (Lang Leav, one of her favorite international writers, made a poem for her and Alden in 2016!) and expressed her wish to write her own stories. In fact, in her blog is a sample of her love story writing – a prologue of the novel she used to work on but never got to finish. It looks like she’ll be able to finally complete something soon. The writing project may not be a novel, but Maine revealed she’s working on her own book chronicling her personal stories (yes, heartaches included).
In her latest blog entry before leaving for the US last Saturday (She, Alden, Jose Manalo, Paolo Ballesteros, and Wally Bayola are now in the States for the KS (Kalyeserye) sa US shows in Los Angeles and New York), Maine shared that in the midst of her busy schedule juggling tapings and endorsement shoots, she’s squeezing in writing for her book. She said that even in her quick US trip, she will have to write to meet her weekly deadline.
Excerpts from her blog:
“Okay so I changed Sunday currently to Saturday Currently, just this time! Just so I could post something before I leave for the States tonight (for KS sa US). It’s been a long while since my last blog entry and I hope you understand how busy I am the past few weeks! Destined To Be Yours taping thrice a week, endorsement shoots, Eat Bulaga live show, and… writing. Okay as much as I want to keep it a secret, huli na ang lahat.. So yes, I am currently working on my book. Another reason why I find it really hard to make time for myself and other things because I have weekly deadlines for the book! (Parang college lang!) Actually kaya dala ko itong laptop ko kasi magsusulat pa din ako sa Amerika! *sigh*”
“Writing: a part of my book about heartaches. How to deal with heartbreaks and breakups. Odiba may ganun! It might help some of you who cannot seem to find the strength to let go of the past. Para move on move on na sa life!”
If her magazine features sell like hotcakes, it’s only a matter of time when her personally written book hits the bookstore shelves and becomes a bestselling hit.
