Watching “UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN” during my high school days let me foresee and day dream of what my opportunity will be.”
Just for a short idea about the film? “UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN follows San Francisco writer Frances Mayes (Diane Lane) to Italy as a good friend offers her a special gift — 10 days in Tuscany.
Once there, she is captivated by its beauty and warmth and impulsively buys an aging, but very charming, villa. Fully embracing new friends and local color, she finds herself immersed in a life-changing adventure filled with enough unexpected surprises, laughter, friendship, and romance to restore her new home — and her belief in second chances”

This lets me reminisce the actress whose role is a writer which I remember she always carrying with her a writing journal that she uses to note down important thingamajig that could contribute to her story.
Similarly, as what Roslyn emphasized in the lecture video: “She discussed about maintaining a double-entry journal which it is very important and useful tool in improving our writing. It could help us record our initial thoughts about writing concerns, then later we can go back and do a self-reflection then record it again on the left-hand page of our thoughts on what we have written earlier. “ (This idea comes from Roslyn in her lecture video at MOOC)
Before I don’t believe that I could do it, but I guess due to my perseverance and positivism, I was able to contribute articles both in print and in blog (Please click the bottom links).
I always believe everybody can be a writer if he or she is enjoying the inner peace within, and the wonderful nature outside. One should note that to go on a writing assignment, one need not just think that it will only take one seating alone, but it takes a lot of time, days in revising the manuscript and improving the magic of grammar to make the story more thought-provoking.
Applying these ideas refine my writing adversary to positive sequel despite the bullying experiences I felt in my work before.
I managed to publish online by clicking these link of the following articles I authored: http://journals.worldnomads.com/ritchiebasilio/ and http://definitelyfilipino.com/blog/author/ridodirected/
