Why not be a writer? Well, some people could probably come up with some good reasons NOT to be a writer, but I can't think of any...except if it's just for the $ that you most likely won't be making...However, when you write for the pure joy of allowing your thoughts to travel from your mind and onto a piece paper...well, what could be better? You might not write the next best seller, make a ton of $, or get the best "reviews", but...so...what? You're having fun!
Then I reflected that all things happen to oneself, happen precisely, precisely now. Century follows century, yet events occur only in the present; countless men in the air, on the land and sea, yet everything that truly happens, happens to me.
