Pass The Torch

I've heard the phrase 'circle of life' many times over but never really understood until I saw the animated film, The Lion King (1994).

The movie is about the father telling his young son how everything is connected and has its own purpose of existence. But more so, the wise king was teaching responsibilities to the future heir to his throne. A nice depiction of life through talking anima*s.

For me, one aspect of that phrase is about passing the torch. A term in sports and became a regular phrase which means to relinquish what you have to the next responsible person.

Prime example of it is the strict education and observation of traditions to maintain the status quo in royal kingdoms like in the UK, Spain, Brunei and others. How about in Philippine business run by few families such as the Ayalas, Sys and Gokongweis to name a few? And who can forget political dynasties like the Angaras, Dys, Lobregats, Tanadas, Aquinos and...

Tumpak ka dyan Pakner. For 11 months na naging member ako ng FSS, nakita ko kung pano nagtutulungan ang writers para mas mapaganda ang kwento. Hindi matatawaran ang dedikasyon na binibigay sa paggawa ng nakakalibog na istoryang kinahuhumalingang ng mambabasa.

Amazona kung tagurian pero malambing naman.

Thanks to all veteran writers, they gave all novice writers an inspiration to compose their own story. Good Luck all writers..

Captcha:famous. (be famous in writing)

If you do not know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else.

Having a symbiotic relationship amongst writers is an encouragement, as it would be beneficial to all of us. It would mean being able to continuously learn from each other. And in the process, it would benefit FSS, the site that we owe so much. FSS has made it possible for us to express through writings another part of ourselves which we want to let out and yet still be inconspicuous. Come to think of it, FSS and its writers has a symbiotic relationship, for FSS needs writers just as the writers need FSS. And in this relationship, it is the reader who reaps the fruits of labor done both by the site and its contributors. The least we can do as readers is to say a simple thank you to these writers, if not for a pretty amazing story, then at least, for the effort.

Precisely a good encouragement.

Tingin ko sasang-ayon ang mga beteranong manunulat sa sasabihin ko. Gusto ko din idagdag na bagaman nasa mundo tayo ng erotica, na nagsusulat tayo ng mga sensuwal na kwento. May kaibahan ang kathang-isip na ating likha sa ating asal. Hindi porke't bastusan ang laman ng iyong katha ay ganon na rin ang asal ng pagkatao mo. Lahat tayo may taglay na libog, pero dapat matutong ilagay sa ilugar.

Isa pa, sa mga baguhan...hangga't maari, wag kayong mahihiya na magtanong, o humingi ng payo sa mga idolo nyo o mga bihasa para sa ikauunlad ng inyong sining.

Pwede din namang maging kaibigan ang inyong mga manunulat. Kung may bumu-bully, nambabastos o bumabagabag sa inyo, mapa miyembro o anuman, nandiyan naman ang kami na pwede niyong lapitan, lalo na si admin at moderator. Hindi kayo mabibigo sa paglapit sa kanila. Gagawan nila ng nararapat na aksiyon anuman iyon.

Do what you love and the rest will fall in its place.
