Time to Write…

Writing-Header

It’s time for me to write… and I have no time to write; my “time to write” is fleeting away.

Or it’s already fleeted…

All of my “time” to write is gone as I’m in editing and marketing mode now.  And who has time to write when they have to edit and market what they’ve already written?  And editing is evil, a necessary evil, but evil and time consuming!   And marketing sucks!  It just sucks… Internet Book Marketing is a mindless and time-consuming process, and so often fruitless…

Fruitless…

People either want a quid pro quo to read your work, or they outright want to get paid for it.

And I won’t do that… either.

Pay for it…

Or read other peoples stuff.

I don’t want to be rude… and I don’t want to waste time or money.   And in truth most of my money has departed and time is all I have left.  And a wasted minute is a minute I can’t ever get back… (like the money that, like the money…)

And I have so little time…

So I don’t want to waste any time and I don’t want to be rude and most often the stuff (I wanted to say theshit”) other people are putting out in words that they want read is both inane and boring…  I neither care about big dicks (black or white) going in and out of tight holes (male or female), heaving breasts of any description; or Vampire Transbians of Uranus taking over the American retailing giant Wal-Mart and forcing all of America to pay double for more and more of the garbage they buy daily in the name of style… or fashion…

Or entertainment…

Really… most of the published crap out there is offensive to me… so I won’t read most other peoples stuff…

Momma always told me:

“If you can’t say something nice… say nothing!”

So nothing, I say nothing… and so I don’t read other peoples work.

And most often they don’t read mine.

And I’m trying to change that.

And hard…

I want other people to read my work… and badly.

So I must market and that marketing takes time, effort and dollars… good graphics don’t just happen; they have to be created.  No one looks at ugly or bad graphics… and good graphics costs dollars…  And good tag lines are needed to get people to at least peek at the substance of what’s there.

And often that tag line has to be risqué, even if the topic is banal, to pique the interest of the hordes… and the hordes want their “interest” piqued; not their intelligence piqued most times, just their interest…

Ever heard of “Twerking…”

And it’s all so faux… fucking false; false erotica, false sex… FALSE…  But it draws interest and it sells.  So my marketing stuff has to be provocative and risqué… and I don’t think that way; and I’m never duplicitous; and I want to do the right thing…

And yet I want people to read my stuff.

And I don’t ever want to be false… faux…

So I market… damn… I market.

And then I go back to editing.

I have 300,000 words already linked in to sentences and paragraphs in two titled manuscripts each with a beginning, a middle, and an end.

300,000 words already composed and ready to…

To…

300,000…

It could be 300,000 words as just those two books are currently written; 100,000 and 200,000 words each. Or it could be five or six or seven books of 30,000 to 50,000 words.  So I could have five to seven books written and not just two…  And perhaps I should edit them down in to those smaller works.  The market today favors shorter stuff…  The younger readers who grew up on gameboys, computers and 400 cable channels prefer quick dénouements, fast endings, constant turmoil, mindless strife and… a finality, any finality; to longer stories…

And all of my stories are long.

All of my stories of my slice of an alternate life… reality as I see it, are long.

Reality… what a concept…

And so my stories… some 300,000 words already composed; two, five or seven books…

Two, five or seven…

And so I have to edit.

I must edit…

Edit!

I have to edit…

And as I want people to read what’s already out there… I have to market.

Market!

I have to market…

And marketing sucks!

It just sucks…

Sucks…

And so…

Who has time to write?

Damn…

Time to write…
