At yesterday's Story-Writing Workshop by 95% The Writers Academy, we learnt to ask;

What's at stake?

Not just for the character in your story, but what's at stake for you as a writer?


What's at stake in this pilgrimage, this 24-hour journey I'm about to make?

So much.

I travel light this time, with nothing but my clothes, toiletries, a file and a photographer's kit. I wonder if I'll find what I'm looking for.



You broke the bonds
And you loosed the chains
Carried the cross of my shame
Oh my shame, you know I believe it.

But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for.
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for.

2 days ago, i've been gone through the past newspapers [since im 'too busy' with my daily life, i dont even have time to read last month's papers].

then, i saw your name as a winner of MPH essay contest.
today, with a handful of luck, i try to find your blog at blogger.com and finally ended up here.

i dont even know what makes you so interesting at the corner of my eye. maybe because i dont have the chance to feel the same glory since im too lazy to start my own writing for the contest...

just wanna congratulate you...

p/s: i dont even know why but i think this is the longest comment i've ever give to a person... hmm..
