The 22 rules of storytelling, according to Pixar
#1: You admire a character for trying more than for their successes.
#2: You gotta keep in mind what's interesting to you as an audience, not what's fun to do as a writer. They can be v. different.
#3: Trying for theme is important, but you won't see what the story is actually about til you're at the end of it.

do since oDesk cannot be blamed. The projects were done outside their site. I already filed a ticket and received this oDesk notification:“Please be reminded, however, that offering and accepting work and payment outside the oDesk system is a serious violation of our policies. We require users of oDesk to work and pay for services through oDesk as this is how we are able to offer the oDesk Guarantee and protect both clients and contractors. Please treat this as a warning.Due to the aforementioned reason, we can not pursue the non-payment issue anymore.”

dito nagsimula ang byahe ko,
hindi sigurado kung saan patungo.
isang puso sa tren na ito,
ang nag-iisa’t nakahalo sa mga pasahero.
Magallanes – Ayala.
iminulat ang mata sa mga nakikita,
pinilit intindihin ang nakasanayan na.
ininda ang bawat paglikod ng kanyang kalsada
nagpakatatag, wala sa isip ang pumara.
Buendia – Guadalupe – Boni.
sa tren na ito marami akong nakatabi
may matanda, bata, mama, at ale.
mayroong mga hindi nagpapasintabi
at sa paglabas nila, ako’y nasasagi.
marami akong natutunan sa tren na ito.
mga aral na ibinigay ng bawat pasahero.
kaya’t pipiliting kong umupo sa lugar ko,
nang may madala ako pagdating sa dulo.
Ortigas – Santolan.
dito, iba’t ibang mata ang nakatitigan,
mga matang inibig at nagustuhan.
pero may iba silang dapat puntahan
kaya sila’y nagpaalam na lang paglabas ng pintuan.
kalagitnaan ng linya ang istasyong ito.
pwede nang bumaba, at sumakay pa-Santolan o Recto
Magpapatuloy be? yan ang tanong ko.
mukhang hindi na kaya’t ngawit na sa pagkakaupo.
Kamuning – Q. Ave.
hindi ako bumaba, ayoko maging talunan.
isang laro ang turing sa ganitong daan.
anuman ang mangyari rito sa sinasakyan,
nakadikit pa rin ang pwit sa kinauupuan.
sa wakas, sa tagal ng byahe… eto na ang dulo!
nakangiti, ibang ligaya ang nararamdaman ng puso
nasaktan man o nabigo… sa paglabas, alam ko
na handa na muling sumakay ng bus pa-Monumento.

As you’ve probably heard, many computer users will not be able to use the Internet come Monday (July 9, 2012) if their computers are not protected from a malware known as the DNSChanger Malware.
Miami Herald reported that tens of thousands of computers are still infected with this virus and are at risk of losing the Internet.
If you are not sure your computer is protected, you definitely want to scan your computer for the malware. Don’t worry, it’s easy.
Just go here: http://www.dns-ok.us/
There’s nothing to download. Simply click the link and you’ll see the message on the page if your computer is safe or not.
If it isn’t, the page will show you how to fix it.
As for me, my computer’s safe. Now I’m relieved.
