Nasubukan Mo na Ba?

Nasubukan mo na ba?

Nasubukan mo na ba?

Mahigit limang taon na ang nakalilipas noong mapasama ako sa grupo ng mga kabataang mahilig makipag chat at makipagsosyalan o makipagkita sa mga taong hindi kakilala — mga taong akin lamang nakausap sa internet.

Sa kanila nakita ko ang malaking pagbabago sa sarili ko
— ang magbihis na hindi ko kadalasan ginagawa,
— ang magsayaw na tila wala nang darating na umaga maging,
— ang uminom na tila wala ng alak na mabibili pa.

The Ever-present Signs

I’m re-printing below, a slightly revised version of an article which got featured in WritersWeekly.com as a Success Story four years ago (December 17, 2002 to be exact) when I had just started freelance writing. It’s sort of my personal reply to the question, “How do I know if I’m really meant to be a writer?” It can even be applied to the perennial question, “How do I know my real purpose in life?”

Tips for the Different Stages of Feature Writing

by noid ( | | )

A few months ago, I started freelance writing again and finished writing three feature articles for two publications. In the process, I have learned or, perhaps more accurately, re-learned a few things. The gist of what I "re-learned" is that writing features consists, at least for me, of stages. In this article, I will share with you these stages of writing as I re-discovered them and also share the things that I have "re-learned" during these stages.

Around five years ago, in 2001, after a video business with friends went bust, I was trying to come up with other ideas to generate income. I had decided to look in the field of my truest passion, writing. But how? I tried scriptwriting for TV but wasn't lucky enough to be given the opportunity. So I was looking into other types of writing for inspiration. Finally, I realized that the answer to my problem was just under my nose, just waiting to be discovered.

Recitation 1 in Filipino 2

Sa kwentong POLDONG  MANUNULAT, aking napag-alaman na sa buhay ng tao meron tayong tinatawag na inspirasyon na nagbibigay sa atin ng lakas ng loob at kaalaman kung bakit tayo nabubuhay sa mundong ito. Ito ay dahil sa mga mahal natin sa buhay, na parating nandyan para umalalay at gumabay sa atin. pero minsab kasi meron yong mga ibang tao na hindi nila nakikita yung mga tao sa kanilang paligid na kung saan matatagpuan nila ang mga kasagutan sa kanilang mga iniisip sa buhay. Masasabi kong, base sa aking nabasa, si Poldo ay isang nagaling na manunulat kung tutuusin, pero hindi nya agad napansin ang kanyang pamilya na syang isang mahalagang bagay na maaari nyang pagkunan ng magandang ideya tungkol sa kanyang isusulat.
