Krissy, writer.

It has a nice ring to it. don't you think so? :p

I have long been wanting to attend writing workshops but they rarely come by. There was one back in August, a 3 days and 2 nights workshop in Tagaytay held by Ms. Tara Sering, but I was not able to attend it because of self-esteem issues. I haven't written stuff for so long (apart from my blog posts) that I really feel that I've lost my rhythm. I was afraid that if I cannot produce anything halfway decent then the workshop organizers will throw me off the cliff or something haha!

Enough about that, now here is something I am excited about! And it's not about shopping! Ö Thanks to Sis Anagon for blogging about it, I waited for announcements from Powerbooks through their Multiply site for this event. Ü

Details are copied in their entirety from Powerbooks' Calendar of Events.

There is a big chance that I would be able to attend those workshops that will be held at the SM Megamall branch. But I need to apply for Vacation Leaves though, and I believe I am already out of VL credits =/ But my manager is supportive, so I really hope he can pull some strings for me.. Hehe. Meanwhile regarding those that will be held at the Greenbelt branch I have a feeling I will not be able to attend those because it's too far. Besides with my work hours of 6am - 3pm I am sure I would be really flustered by then.

I surely wish Sis Ana and I can attend these workshops. It would be a great way to enhance our skills, remember forgotten lessons, and revive my rhythm that I seem to have lost already. Besides this is an opportunity for us soul sisters to bond. Ü
