NoInk’s Writer for the Month of October

 What goes on inside a historical writer’s mind while creating a story? How are they able to vividly relive the past and bring it back for their readers?


NoInk delves into the psyche of one of today’s popular historical writers, Binibining Mia.


Binibining Mia wrote her first story at the age of 16. The title of her first story was “My Best Friend’s Boyfriend,” which was under teen fiction category on Wattpad. Though she eventually deleted the story because she thought it was cliché, she used this experience to jumpstart her online writing career.


Mia has always been fascinated with true-to-life stories, myths, legends, and general history. She believes that a good writer is also a wide reader. Nagsimula siya sa Wattpad, nagsusulat siya kapag inspired at stressed. Sa pagsusulat niya ibinubuhos ang lahat.



Her favorite international writer is Lang Leav. According to Bb. Mia, “I really love how she moves me to tears, even a single striking word would pierce my heart. Mahilig talaga ako sa mga deep at malalaim na words na may another meaning, gusto ko ‘yong mapapaisip talaga ako sa idea at concept na gustong ipaunawa ng writer.”

And Paz Marquez Benitez is her favorite local writer for her classic short story “Dead Stars.” She says, “Sa kaniya ko natutunan gumamit ng mga earthly symbols when it comes to relating it to life.”

Delirium Trilogy by Lauren Oliver. Mula pagkabata, mahilig na ako sa mga tragic stories and sad endings. Forbidden love plus ‘you and me against the world’ concept. Pero sa story na ito, sobrang naapektuhan ako, hoping every chapter na maging successful ang mission at maging sila ulit. Until I reached the end, medyo open ending pero I really hope they both end up with each other again. Kahit ngayon lang, kahit sa kanilang dalawa lang.




Ang aking ina, mahilig din siya magbasa at palagi niya kaming kinukwentuhan ng history noong bata pa ako to the point na nakagawa ako ng wish list na gusto kong puntahan lahat ng historical places sa buong mundo. Bukod doon, lahat ng regrets at what ifs ko sa buhay ay inspirasyon ko rin sa pagsusulat. Sa mundo kasi ng pagsusulat, magagawa mo ang lahat ng gusto mo bilang bida sa storya, at doon matutuklasan mo rin ang mga bagay na hindi mo nakita at napansin habang naglalakbay ka. Inspirasyon ko ang aking ina, ang aking mga mambabasa, ang aking pamilya at kaibigan, at higit sa lahat ang aking sarili.





Historical Fiction. Mahilig talaga ako sa history at makalumang bagay. At kahit sa pagsusulat ipinagmamalaki ko ang genre na ito lalo na ang mga related information at scenes sa ating kasaysayan. A mixture of history and love story with a touch of action and fantasy, iyan ang palaging kinahihinatnan ng aking mga akda.





Marami (ha-ha)! Hindi ako makapili, pero depende siguro sa genre. Sa Poetry “The Anthology of Love” by Lang Leav (Lahat ‘yon ha-ha). Sa Romance and Action “Delirum Trilogy” by Lauren Oliver. Sa Teen Fiction “To all the boys I’ve Loved Before” by Jenny Han & “Flipped” by Wendelin Van Draanen. Sa Vampire “Thirst” by Christopher Pike. Sa Fantasy “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” by Ransom Riggs at sa Classics “Dead Stars” by Paz Marquez Benitez & “Noli Me Tangere at El Filibusterismo” by Dr. Jose Rizal.



Everything goes smooth as it was planned but I really have no idea that I’ll be what I am today. I never expected this blessing from God, ang sabi ko lang sa kaniya noon, isusulat lahat ng inspirasyon at frustration ko sa buhay and now, looking back, sariwa pa rin sa’kin lahat. Lahat ng pinagdaanan kong ups and downs makarating lang sa path na ito.




Definitely, a professor or a SpEd teacher. Pero hindi ko pa binibitawan ang pangarap kong maging doktor. Sabi nga nila, mahaba pa ang journey at hindi kailangan madaliin ang mga bagay. Finding out what you really want in life takes time and realizations kaya hanggang ngayon hinahanap ko pa si Self. (ha-ha!)





I am mostly talkative, but quiet when I’m mad and disappointed. Also, emphatic to the point na I always find reason to understand the person I hate. Pero depende rin sa situation kasi kapag over the belt na, minsan lang ako magalit pero I never regret fighting back. And I end up, laughing for what just happened. Medyo magulo talaga ang personality ko, kahit ako ‘di ko rin maintindihan. (ha-ha!)




Optimistic, cheerful and dedicated.




I would rather see my entire future beforehand in order to know if I’m making the right choice with my current life situation. Mahirap magkaroon ng regret but with regrets, we learn.
