I am Caris Cruz. I am a freelance copywriter in the lifestyle & arts niche. I write fiction with the colors of diversity and the lores of Filipino culture.
I chose HELLOCARIS.COM because it sounds so warm and inviting. Rather than a portfolio, this place is a growing pile of recycled ideas and forgotten words mixed with the new. It’s the bullet journal with unlimited pages I get to open during special weekends. It’s that flimsy old notebook that I carry around and would not throw away. It is the poem I wrote in a piece of paper that I folded into a plane, a song that’s stuck in my head that I keep repeating. It’s messy, disorganized, most of the time directionless, but it’s home.
This blog has been with me since 2014, so you can expect a LOT of old stories and exceedingly annoying typos. I’d like to keep them, to remind them of who I once was, and that there’s always a chance to shape who I will be.
You’re welcome, by the way. You’re always welcome. The world is cold and always in a hurry but here, you can just grab a chair and stay. Stay for as long as you like. I wrote a lot of stories and songs and folly, and you can cry and laugh at it and not feel alone.
