Just a penny of my thoughts

Assalamualaikum and greetings.

Dear readers, I know I didn't post here for a long time. I was actually quite busy with my personal things. I know some of you are still waiting for my update. Millions sorry for that. To be frank I feel reluctant to update my story here. As you know, to make a piece that can be called karya is crucial. It takes a lot of effort and time into making a piece of fiction that worth the read. I hope for those who have been plagiarize other people's hard work, please stop doing that. It's very unethical when you simply stealing ideas, work, words and production of other people. Remember, originality is the key of success. >_<

And now let's talk about my contengan-yang-masih-tak-tahu-bila-nak-terbit. I'd like to clarify a few things, so here's a 'timeline' of Kerana Lamaran Itu.

2011: I started to write under the title "Andai Itu Takdir Cintaku" and posted it here.

2012: I changed the title to "Kerana Lamaran Itu" due to some reasons and managed to update a cerpen under the same title.

2013: Finally! I was able to finish up my writing somewhere in March. I submitted my manuscript to one of a well-known publisher and got a replied only after 8 months waiting . I passed the evaluation process (hooray!!!) and they interested to publish my manuscript. A few weeks later I received another email informing my manuscript will be published on January 2015. Due to the long wait and after considering some advice from close friends, family and readers I retracted my manuscript from that publisher and gave it to another publisher.

2014: End of February, I got a replied from the publisher. Unfortunately, my manuscript had been rejected. (It's okay, not my rezeki). Thus, I move on to another publisher.

June 2014: My manuscript is still in the process of evaluation. The editors will assess the manuscript according to the queue (urutan penghantaran). Thank you~

Frankly speaking, my momentum of writing has been declining gradually. Kalau ada yang bertanya Saat Kau Hadir Dalam Hidupku bila nak publish, my answer would be Kerana Lamaran Itu pun tak publish lagi. A million apologies for those who are waiting- waiting for a good news, for Saat Kau Hadir Dalam Hidupku and for the new entry. I know it has been a longgggg time waiting but unfortunately there is nothing I could do. Sorry for that. :(

Kepada penulis baru macam saya, take this things as a lessons (if you read my entry). I pray that what happened to me would never happen to anyone else. For you readers (including silent readers), thank you for your endless support, love and prayers. May Allah bless you and ease everything. : ]

  6. sebagai penulis baru ini lah perlu dilalui ... kekadang rindu juga dgn entry baru tetapi faham mungkin kesibukan menghalang kita. Apa pun Xuanza terus berkarya sebab kerana lamaran itu dan saat kau hadir dalam hidupku sudah hampir ke penghujungnya. Akak harap ia akan menemui sinarnya ....
