Two Practical Ways to Tell a Story

There are only two practical ways to tell a story - third-person narration and first-person singular narration. In the first method, the writer keeps himself out of the picture and tells the reader impersonally about what happens to his characters. In the second method, the writer assumes the personality of one character and tells the story as if it were his own personal experience.

Journalism/Short Story Writing Diploma
Of course there are other methods to use to tell a story - for example, one person can write a story in the form of a letter or a series of letters; or as a series of extracts from a diary. But these are cumbersome methods that present special difficulties and are not appreciated or favored by modern editors on print media and on digital media.

If a story, when written, is a good story, any way of telling it is good. The important point is that the two methods first mentioned are much easier than the others; they can be successfully applied to any type of story and they are always effective. The third-person form is usually the easiest to use and is certainly the most flexible. The first-person singular form is more difficult, although it is very effective when well handled.

Sample of third-person narration

Said Ms. Wings: "It must be teeming. And me with a new hat, naturally. We might as well wait here as anywhere."

"All right, let's," said Mrs. Flaming. "I could do with another drink."

Most short stories are written in this form because it is the easiest to use and is also flexible and effective. It is certainly the best narrative method for the ordinary writer. The above example of third-person narration clearly shows the advantages of the method. The few lines quoted give a very clear picture of the two women.

Sample of first-person singular narration

"A very good cocktail," I said. "Well, there are plenty more where that came from and if you've got any friends on board, you tell them you've got a pal who's got all the liquor in the world."

Stories in the first-person form are often told by the principal character. If that character is to be human and natural, as he must be, the author must not endow the character with superhuman powers of observation and divination. The character must not be made to know what an ordinary human being, in the circumstances of the story, could not know. Yet through the mouth of that one person, the thoughts, motives, actions, hopes and fears of all the other characters must be made clear to the reader.

Source of idea: From my creative writing course lessons when I took up my Journalism and Short Story Writing by mail with the ICS (International Correspondence Schools) in 2000-2001.

Kabayan Kung si Sen De Lima ay Aawit ng Mga Kataga ng Pagsisisi - Siya Po Ba'y Iyong Mapapatawad?

Pagmamahalan Na Humantong Sa Kulungan - Ronie & Leila- Photo Credits: PNP/FB/Senate
Hindi na po ako magpapaligoyligoy pa. Ganito naglaro ang aking isip...Sa gitna ng mapanglaw na sulok ng kuwartong kinaroroonan ni Senadora Leila de Lima - namalas ko na ang lalim ng kaniyang iniisip. Ang kaniyang mga mata ay namamaga na sa pagluha habang nakapako sila sa nakabukas na bintana - at narinig ko na kaniyang kinakausap ang kaniyang sarili at sa bawat kataga na kaniyang sinasambit ay napakalinaw sa aking pandinig - sa ibaba po ang kaniyang awit.

Kung dati ako’y isang Reynang nakaupo
Sa trono ng kasikatan at kapangyarihan
Lahat ng aking ibigin ay nangyayari
Ngayon ako’y isang basahan na pinandidirihan...

Akala ko wala nang katapusan
Ang nakamit kong kaligayahan
Mula nang ako’y sumisikat pa lamang
Na abogado, huwis at naging senadora...

Ang kasikatan ko’y hindi maipagkakaila
Maraming tao ang humanga sa akin
Pinangarap nila na ako’y mahagkan at mayakap
Ako’y kanilang inidolo at minahal ng labis...

Nguni’t biglang nagbago ang ihip ng hangin
Iniwan ako ng aking mga kakilala’t kaibigan
Ako’y kanilang ipinagkanulo’t pinaratangan
Kasabay ang galit ng mamamayan at lipunan...

Ako raw ay protektor ng taong hanapbuhay ay druga
Ako raw ay umaabuso ng kapangyarihan na taglay ko
Kaya ako’y nahatulan ng habambuhay na pagkabilanggo
Sang-ayon sa batas ng bayan kong sinilangan...

Dito sa loob ng masikip at madilim na piitan
Ang kaniig ko’y siphayo at kalungkutan
At mga kaluluwang ‘tulad ko’y naparusahan
Nangagsisisi’t humihingi ng kapatawaran...

Ang kanilang mga hinaing at paghihirap
Ang kanilang mga luhang nalalaglag
Ang kanilang mga nakabibinging pag-iyak
Ay lalung nagpapahina sa natitira kong lakas...

Aaminin ko mahirap ang magkunwari
Ang bawat himaymay ng aking laman
Ay sumisigaw din ng matinding hirap
Nagsisikip ang dibdib ko sa sobrang sakit...

At ang mga karapatan ko bilang mamamayan
Ay kasamang ikakandado sa loob ng kulungan
Ang pagiging ilkaw ko ng tahana’y pawawalang bisa din
Kasama ang karapatan kong maghanap ng ikabubuhay...

Masakit pala kapag napikon ang langit
Nguni’t ‘di ko magawang magalit sa Maylalang
Batid kong Siya ang higit na nakaaalam
Sa buhay ko na minsa'y Kaniyang kinalugdan!

What Magic Spells Senator Trillanes and His Political Party Would Use to Impeach Duterte in May This Year?

Minsan itong si Senadora Trillanes ay naging panauhin sa programa ni Ms Solita Monsod entitled: Bawal Ang Pasaway Kay Mareng Winnie. Sa araw na iyon ang punto ng kanilang usapan ay patungkol kay SPO3 Arthur Lascañas.


NAKAKAGIMBAL! TRILLANES may SAYAD na pala noon pa!

Na ayon sa paniniwala ni Trillanes, ang magiging testimonya ni Lascañas sa Senado sa ikalawang pagkakataon - would lead to the impeachment of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and that impeachment could begin as early as May this year, depending on how the public would receive the former cop's claims.

However, si Trillanes at ang buong LP kasama ang lahat ng Yellow supporters ay muli na namang nabigo sa paggamit kay SPO3 Arthur Lascañas - para sirain ang magandang imahe at pangalan ng mahal nating Pangulong Duterte. Ang una at huling pagdinig ng Senado ay ginawa at tinapos on March 6, 2017 - lumabas kasi sa kanilang pagiimbistiga si Lascañas ay nagsinungaling.

On February 27, 2017 AlJazeera published an article entitled: 93% of Filipinos Happy With Senator De Lima's Arrest - 5% were against the arrest and the remaining 2% were oblivious of the senator's arrest. The said survey was conducted through the top two social media: Facebook and Twitter where 86,000 people online users were engaged.

The above survey tells us two important facts: (1) Mostly of the Filipinos now are happy and confident to the way President Duterte is managing the country. (2) The remaining 7% (5% against the arrest + 2% oblivious) are representing Filipinos na nanatiling bulag sa totoong nagaganap na pagbabago ng bansa under the Duterte's administration.

If Senator Trillanes and his Political Party and their supporters would only hear the true cries of the Filipino majority - para sa tunay at totoong pagbabago na mararanasan under the Duterte's leadership - I am surely sure na mapapahiya siya sa kaniyang panawagan to impeach the president - dahil ang nakakaraming Filipino ngayon ay gising na.

#NoToYellowShit: Twitter is The Newly-Found Hangout of Yellow Supporters to Disgrace Duterte and Marcos Aside Facebook and YouTube

Did you know that the Yellow Supporters have found a new hangout to disgrace President Duterte and his allies? Yes. Twitter is their newly-found hangout where to show their lies and unresolved hates and anger to our beloved President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and Bong Bong Marcos aside Facebook and YouTube.
#NoToYellowShit
These people are called the #LeniTrolls or #YellowTrolls - they are tweeting purposely to demoralize Duterte's administration and BongBong Marcos - they are tweeting lies of 140 characters to attract the International Media of the world.

What are the reasons why #LeniTrolls also known the #YellowTrolls have migrated to Twitter and have to spend most of their time tweeting lies to the whole world that are against the good intentions of Duterte's leadership and as well as to show their great support to Leni Robredo and the Yellow Team?

You might find some interesting reasons I enumerated below based from my own experience and observation every time I am on my Facebook-ing and during the time I am on YouTube watching videos made by the biased media networks in the Philippines and videos produced by the Duterte's government and its supporters such as:


Top 5 Social Networking Websites
  • It is more than 8 months now when President Duterte became the president of this country. For more than eight months, these YellowTrolls or LeniTrolls have used Facebook to show their dislikes to our newly elected president. 
  • They have applied different strategies to encourage the Filipino majority to withdraw their trust and confidence to our beloved president - but they failed it because we, the 16 million + supporters of Digong plus the 14 million + of Marcos have became united to overcome their demonic thinking.
  • Even on YouTube, we, the Duterte's supporters and Marcos supporters are in full force flooded the YouTube comment sections with our insightful comments to support the president and his allies. And these LeniTrolls or YellowTrolls could not overcome the power of a united supports from Duterte-Marcos supporters.
  • The Yellow supporters have changed their mainstream from Facebook, YouTube to Twitter without realizing that there are already thousands of Duterte-Marcos supporters using this online tool Twitter to promote the goodness of Duterte and Marcos to the whole world. Yes. The Yellows have the #LeniTrolls on Twitter tweeting lies for the downfall of Duterte's government but the supporters of Duterte-Marcos are ready and very alive to voice out against their lies.
Below is the top 5 social networking sites where Duterte-Marcos supporters can use them to show their supports and to encounter those lies created by the Yellow supporters such as:
  • Facebook - with 1,100,000,000 estimated unique monthly visitors
  • YouTube - with 1,000,000,000 estimated unique monthly visitors
  • Twitter - 310,000,000 estimated unique monthly visitors
  • LinkedIn - 255,000,000 estimated unique monthly visitors
  • Pinterest - 250,000,000 estimated unique monthly visitors
Calling to all Duterte-Marcos supporters, twitter is open for everyone. You can use this online tool to show your supports to Duterte-Marcos and to protect them from their enemies and the biased media networks of the world. If you were on Twitter don't forget to tweet #NoToYellowShit and add me as one of your twitter's friends - my twitter link: ManOfTwit

Of course, tayong mga supporters ni Pangulong Duterte at Bong Bong Marcos - ang hangarin natin ay hindi para makipag-away sa kaninuman. We are here bilang nagkakaisa para suportahan ang mga magagandang layunin ng ating mahal na pangulo at ang kaniyang mga kaalyado. Dahil sa panahon ngayon tayo ay gising na sa katotohanan. At ayaw na nating mamuhay ng puno ng kasinungalingan at kamangmangan gawa ng nakaraang administrasyon.

Nabigo na Naman si Trillanes at Ang Buong LP Party sa Paggamit kay SPO3 Lascañas Para Sirain Ang Pangulong Duterte

Tapos na po ang pag-imbistiga ng Senado kay SPO3 Lascañas. Ang una at huling pagdinig ng Senado ay ginawa at tinapos na rin on March 6, 2017. It was proven by the Senators that Lascañas ay nagsinungaling at ang kaniyang mga testimonya ay walang value at all.



Salamat kay Senator Manny Pacquiao - ang huli niyang pagtanong kay Lascañas na naging basihan niya para e pakontem si Lascañas kahit man binawi niya ito - doon nagsimula ang agam-agam na tapusin na ang imbistigasyon sa araw ng Lunes - March 6, 2017. At ipaubaya na si Lascañas sa PNP at CHR. At salamat din kay Senator Lacson dahil sa kaniyang naging disisyon na tapusin na ang imbistigasyon ng Senado sa lintik na retired SPO3 Arthur Lascañas.

Ito ang tanong ni Senator Manny Pacquiao kay Lascañas: Kung magpalit tayo ng posisyon - ikaw Lascañas ay ako at ako naman ay ikaw na inimbistigahan mo - dalawa ang testimonya ko - ano ang masasabi mo sa dalawa kong magkaibang testimonya? Sagot ni Lascañas: Ako ay magdududa. Di ba maliwanag na mula mismo sa bibig ni Lascañas ang kaniyang mga sinabi ay walang katotohanan dahil mismo siya ay umamin na nagduda sa kaniyang mga testimonya.

Congrats to BBM For Winning on The First Round: PET Rejects VP Robredo's Petition to Trash BBM's Electoral Protest

This is a captivating news report which was highlighted at Ms Jessica Sojo's State of The Nation Address aired by GMA television network - informing the public that VP Leni Robredo's petition asking the PET (Presidential Electoral Tribunal) to ignore VP BongBong Marcos' Electoral Protest was rejected because the tribunal has found the complaint to be sufficient in form and substance.

VP Leni Robredo
Now I am sending my good wishes and congratulations to our beloved VP BongBong Marcos for winning on the first round and also I would like to celebrate the happiness I am feeling now with the 14 million+ Filipinos who have given their trusts and confidence to VP BongBong Marcos during the May 9, 2016 polls. And if possible, disseminate the good news to other Filipinos in the whole world.

Read the below explanations and reasons why PET has rejected VP Leni Robredo's petition as well as the views and comments of Robredo and Marcos' lawyers.

According to PET, I quote "On the matter of the sufficiency of the protest, the same is already beyond dispute. With the issuance of the summons, the tribunal has found the complaint to be sufficient in the form and substance. The protest contained narrations of ultimate facts on the alleged irregularities and anomalies in the contested clustered precincts, which the protestant needs to prove in due time. ...It must be emphasized that as to the veracity of the protestant's allegations, nothing yet has been proved."

Below is the views and comments of Atty. Romulo Macalintal - Robredo's lawyer, I quote:

"Thus, the PET stressed that, as to the veracity of the protestant's allegations, nothing yet has been proved. This means that Mr. Marcos is just being given the opportunity to prove his case. The case would still go through the usual tedious and lengthy process of revision and recount of the ballots. The ballot boxes and their contents would be retrieved from various provinces to be brought to the PET for the recount."

While Atty. Vic Rodriguez - Marcos' lawyer explains, I quote "We are now looking to the resolution of another pending ex parte motion that we have filed, 'yun po yung pagse-set na ng preliminary conference. Importante yun hanggang mai-set na yung prelim conference upang umusad na nang mas mabilis ang election protest na inihain niya'."

Of course, we all know that to wait for the final results of this electoral protest is a long way - pero lagi tayo nanjan para suportahan ang laban ng ating VP BongBong Marcos.

Open Letter to VP Robredo, Human Rights Watch, 6 LP Senators, LP Congressmen, Catholic Bishops, Priests, Nuns and to All The Yellow Supporters

Honorable VP Robredo, Human Rights Watch, 6 LP Senators, LP Congressmen, Catholic Bishops, Priests, Nuns and to All The Yellow Supporters - may I ask you this each and everyone: Do you hate drugs? Do you hate crimes? Do you hate corruption? Do you really care the children, your country, your brothers and sisters Filipinos? If you all hate drugs, crimes and corruption and you really care your country - then it is about time to be united as one nation. It is about time to extend your true and sincere love, respect, trust and support to our newly elected president and become partners for change!

Hope you are all in good health and everything is fantastic for you Honorable VP Robredo, Human Rights Watch, 6 LP Senators, LP Congressmen, Catholic Bishops, Priests, Nuns and to All The Yellow Supporters.

First of all I just want to remind you that in Duterte’s administration, the human rights are protected in the Philippines, that even the highest man in the land can be called upon for his actions and that every citizen accused of a crime has the right to the due process of law, like the case of Senator Leila de Lima.

I know – you all knew it VP Robredo, Human Rights Watch, 6 LP Senators, LP Congressmen, Catholic Bishops, Priests, Nuns and to All The Yellow Supporters, that before President Duterte take off to Malacanang, you all saw it that the Philippines was a tormented nation because of corruptions, crimes and illegal drugs industry in the country that the former administration of Noynoy has failed to fix them. You all knew it that the presence of this drug in the country has killed people, relationships and dreams.
If there is chaos in the Philippines, it is because politicians are fighting for powers and are using the innocent masses to acquire it. The one who are paying the price for this are the poor people and the country, like what is happening now - "Hindi kasi matanggap ng mga talunang kandidato ang pagkatalo nila noong nakaraang eleksyon."
For me in order to avoid more disorder and chaos in the country, we should let the law takes it course and remain united. That is the only way to save the Philippines and we all should help our legally elected president to run the country. President Duterte is highly capable to lead this country. You all see it that in just eight months there are tremendous achievements happened under the Duterte's leadership compared to the six years of Noynoy Aquino's administration. 
I can still remember President Duterte’s message - his call to the Filipino people during the campaign period, he said, I quote “I am here because the Filipinos are suffering in the hands of corrupt government officials and its failure to protect and provide the needs of its people. I am here to correct and establish order in my beloved country. Many will stop me, many will go against me and many even try to kill me because my principle and dignity over on how to fix this country. This will be my last candidacy due to my age. But if God bless me with your help, I might change this country that you all be proud of and my legacy will extend far beyond next Filipino generation.”

This is my simple way to oppose the call of LP members and supporters calling President Duterte to resign and to the alleged secret plot to cripple Duterte's administration or to impeach the president.

Alin Kabayan Ang Mas-Makataong Hatol Kay Sen De Lima Kapag Napatunayang Nagkasala: Death Penalty Or Reclusion Perpetua?

Ipagpalagay natin na ang korte has found Senator Leila de Lima guilty - and then ikaw has given the opportunity to determine kung ano ang dapat na hatol sa kaniya - alin kaya sa dalawang babanggitin ko ang pipiliin mo: Ang Reclusion Perpetua or ang Death Penalty?
What is Reclusion Perpetua? Reclusion perpetua, or permanent imprisonment, is a crime sentence similar to life imprisonment. It is used in the Philippines. A person sentenced to reclusion perpetua must serve a jail term of at least 30 years and face additional penalties. Those serving a reclusion perpetua sentence can never become eligible to run for public office. Reclusion perpetua is one step below the death penalty in the Philippines sentencing system. 

What is Death Penalty? Death Penalty also known as capital punishment, this is the most severe form of corporal punishment as it is requires law enforcement officers to kill (to cause the death of, to end the life) of the convicted offender. Forms of the death penalty include lethal injection, hanging from the neck, gassing, firing squad and has included use of the guillotine.

Kung ako ang pipili, para sa akin mas-makatao ang parusang Death Penalty kaysa Reclusion Perpetua. Bakit kamo?

Kapag nahatulan si Senadora Leila de Lima ng Reclusion Perpetua ang kaniyang buhay na kaluluwa ay magdudusa sa loob ng kulungan at least 30 years plus other penalties na haharapin niya. Bawa't segundo, minuto, araw at buwan ng kaniyang pagkakulong siya ay dadanas ng kapighatian. Unti-unti siyang manghihina hanggang sa hindi na niya makayanan at mas-gugustuhin pa niya na mamatay na lamang. Plus puwede siya abusuhin ng kapwa niya priso, repin at paglaruan ang kaniyang puri't dangal. Puwede siya mabuwang sa pag-iisip. In short hindi makatao ang parusang Reclusion Perpetua.

Samantala ang Death Penalty kung sakali ito ang magiging hatol kay Senadora Leila de Lima - para sa akin ang hatol na ito ay mas-makatao. Bakit nasabi kong makatao? Ang buhay na kaluluwa ni Senadora Leila de Lima ay maikling panahon lamang siyang mananatili sa kulungan. Kapag sinabi ng judge na after 30 days mula sa araw na siya ay nahatulan ng Death Penalty either by hanging, firing, electric chair execution, injection at putol ulo - at least from two to three minutes malalagutan na siya ng hininga. Maikling panahon lamang ang kaniyang mararamdamang sakit at pighati. Anyway, this is only my personal opinion.

Duterte and Marcos Supporters Get Ready With Your Cameras For VP Leni Robredo's 'Hubaran' Trip

(State-TV.Com) has published VP Leni Robredo's challenge the virtual world she would go publicly strip naked if Senator Leila de Lima is not released within two days. The two days period that VP Robredo said on her statement have already expired. So, if she is truthful with her promise - she would carry it out without hesitation. 



Why would VP Leni Robredo be obliged na ipakita sa madla ang ganda ng kaniyang kahubaran na ayon sa kaniyang pangako? Ito ay dahil sa hindi pagsang-ayon ng Supreme Court sa petition ng mga abogado ni Senator Leila de Lima submitted on February 27, 2017.

Ano ang petition ng mga abogado ni Senator Leila de Lima sa Supreme Court? Na published din ito sa YouTube on February 28, 2017 patungkol ito sa TRO (Temporary Restraining Order) na pabor kay Senadora Leila de Lima kaugnay sa kinakaharap niyang kaso na illegal drug trade. Nabigo ang mga abogado ni De Lima dahil ang gusto ng Supreme Court ay ang komento muna na magmumula kay Judge Juanita Guerrero na nagpaaresto at nagpakulong kay Senadora De Lima.

Nakahanda na po ba kayo VP Leni Robredo na ipakita sa madla ang iyong kahubaran? Dahil ito ang pangako mo na maghuhubad ka kung hindi makakalabas si Senadora Leila de Lima sa kulungan sa loob ng dalawang araw. Would you keep what you promised? The whole virtual world is now on waiting for your live-lustful show.
