The Writer's Creed

Posted on at

This is my Pen. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My Pen is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My Pen, without me, is useless. Without my Pen, I am useless. I must write my pen true. I must write better than my enemy who is trying to discredit me. I must discredit him before he discredits me. I will...My pen and I know that what counts in war is not the number of words we write, the number of keywords we put, nor the number of pages we make. We know that it is the message that count. We will convey...My pen is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its ball point and its ink. I will keep my pen clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will...Before God, I swear this creed. My pen and I are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until victory is Philippines' and there is no enemy, but peace!
