May 18, 2007 ... Could you do three newspaper type columns per
week? That is how much a full time newspaper person has to submit.
If so, or even close to that. I know a guy at T&G I would introduce the idea
I first want to thank you, I think the implications
of this question is that maybe my writing is become closer to pro grade,
therefore I will say, thank you, and I do appreciate the compliment.
I have a sincere, gut level, get down to nature
desire to enjoy my life. I am trying to choose my word, I think maybe I have
traveled so long, I have lost the need for public approval, or even the idea
that it is real. I do want your approval, and i seek the approval of friends, I
want their respect.
I have fell in love with writing, but I am not in
love with the audience. I think I have become like an artist, they paint a great
work of art, and some critic says this or that, and they think in
arrogance, "What do you know, I am the artist."
Yes, I could easily write articles per week, and so
could you for that matter, however, there is a problem. I already have a job,
the boss is cool, he makes no demands, and I can do anything I wish, I write as
I wish, and the editor approves everything. I write for myself. In the back of
my mind, I think, yes, I could write some great piece of work for the newspaper,
the New York Times would pick it up, then CNN would call me, I would give
interviews, and life would be wonderful. Then, after all the time devoted to
that, Iwould leave and go on Vacation to Togo.
Good writing is good writing, whether with an
audience, or never read by anyone, and destroyed, therefore the satisfaction I
need is by the writing, not by the delivery. Always in the back of many writers
minds is, I want to say the words that will change the world, I think maybe a
God would do that, and I am not God, so if there is God, then he will use my
words as he wishes.
I write for the internet.
100 percent justice.
My writing only succeeds on the merits of what I
write, the hard part to accept, and difficult to interpret, is when I write
something exceptionally good, then nobody comments as the piece is too
I like this game, 100 percent justice, maybe one of
these days, I will write the words, that get sent around the world. The story,
the feelings, the explanation so clear, it brings people to the computer, and
"I will forward this to my Father, my Brother, and
that guy at work."
Then, I will know I wrote very well that
Somewhere, over the rainbow and through the woods to
Grandmothers House is the path, I suppose in the end, I do not want a boss, as
my boss is already driving me crazy and I work for myself.
Money, everyone likes money, I plan already on making
a couple of Million or more with websites.

would have to title this Three Articles Per Week, which I think is grammatically
