Creative Writing Workshop with the Davao Bloggers

Earlier today, I attended the Creative Writing Workshop which was organized by Davao Bloggers. The speaker was a writer, SunStar Davao columnist, Toast Master, and former educator, Rene Lizada. The workshop was an enlightening experience and it made me realize that I still need to improve my writing skills. We were taught how to create "ideas" out of nothing and how experience and inspiration has become the stepping stones of becoming a good writer. 

As a trainer, the workshop has also helped me realized the proper use of words when writing technical articles and manuals. As a blogger, it helped me realize that I should be careful on what words that I should use to avoid being "misunderstood". 

All in all, the money and time spend was really worth it. It made me realize that I could become a better writer for as long as I keep on writing. And that's what I'm gonna do. 

Adding Criminal Minds on my TV series list

After the unfortunate cancellation of Numb3rs, I'm planning to add another police procedural TV series on my long list of US TV series, and I decided on to follow Criminal Minds. For those of you who are not aware about this TV series,

Criminal Minds is an American police procedural drama series that follows a team of profilers from the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) at Quantico, Virginia. It differs from many criminal system procedural dramas by focusing on the criminal rather than the crime itself.

I have seen some episodes of the show during the time when CSI show goes on a weekly break and I found the series very intriguing because how the the agents analyzes the "unsub". With that said, I'm gonna start by downloading the very first season, one episode at a time.

NUMB3RS TV series has Finally Ended

I've been following Numb3rs since the very first season and I was disappointed that CBS has end it run with it's final episode last Friday. However the show ended on a very light note. Charles and Amita finally got married and possibly moving to London, and Don has found the answer to the question about his life and proposed to his long time girlfriend Robin. Well as they all say "All good things will come to end".

I will miss this show a lot and I thank Rob Morrow and David Krumholtz for giving us fans six wonderful seasons of NUMB3RS
