since I'm seeing a reader below (shoutout to ms. ermi ), I'm going to post an interesting read of sorts.
I've always thought of being a playwright, scriptwriter, screenwriter, or whatever you call the person that provides storylines for the performance arts. I've never been an actor but always the storyteller. I love creating stories and provide detail as to how it should be told.
One of the things I feel that I should write about is how people equate themselves with money. It's probably known to everyone that every single person has his / her own price tag above his / her head. The girls that post in the spas and MPs (not sure about the KTV girls) have their own price --- a price to satisfy a man's lustful desires, which appears to be reciprocal to that woman's needs, plus excess to somehow k*ll the disgust of whatever she did with a man she never desired to be with in the first place.
Yet, prices aren't limited to women who ask for money in doing sexual atrocities in return. We, too, are guilty of putting prices on our heads. We pick jobs that aren't really worth it IF the price is right. That's why we talk to HRs about our asking prices on salaries. That's why we work for raises and loathe over paycuts.
I was thinking of writing a story in which a young student-athlete has been asked to sell a game out. I've seen reports of game-fixing in the collegiate ranks back when I was in La Salle in 2007 and Paolo Orbeta of CSB had been arrested for this infraction. Yet, I've always heard about this idea: games are fixed, players are payed by mafioso-esque Chinamen betting over odds. What if we extend that story to when this guy turns to a pro. He'd eventually find escorts, eventually lose game, then becomes an entry-level employee. An inescapable cycle to which one has to sell more than just talent. It's personal. It becomes to a point where you sell your morals. Your values. Your idea of who you should've been in the first place.
If I could just find a way to where I'd be in a scerenwriting workshop, maybe I could develop the plot more. Bebenta ang "Benta", don't you think?
