Been going through it for some time. Deaths in the family, stress on the streets, trying to stay out of the way of the local police. I've been writing a bit here and there: https://medium.com/cognitive-dissident/latest

Clearly a newer generation will have to grow up.  Leaders like Elon Musk.  Imagine this; a high speed loop railway that begins at Beijing, crosses the Bering Strait and ends at Seattle.

Being old is generally seen as a bad thing in American culture. But I want to interview more older women. And when I say 'older' I don't mean 55 or 65. I mean 80 or 85 or 95. I mean bona fide old ladies. Women who've lived long lives, made mistakes, had successes, had families or not had families, and who are willing to talk about all of it. Women who might be described as badass.I spoke to former Vermont governor Madeleine Kunin recently for my ...

There is nothing wrong with using fanfiction as a tool of enhancing one's writing ability, experimenting with characters whose motivations are clearly known to the writer. This can be used a jump off point to creating your own works.

Fanfiction is a good tool for learning, but your mission should be to CREATE YOUR OWN. Only when you create your own is all of that writing practice able to pay off. Writing requires experimentation, extrapolation and ultimately experience. There is no substitute. 
Self-publishing has given a voice to writers and stories that were previously kept silent by traditional publishing. Leading the vanguard are writers such as Amanda Hocking and Hugh Howey who both have achieved tremendous suc...

I agree. My daughters write fanfiction and as a learning tool it's great. What I object is when writers of fanfiction capitalize on the popularity og characters and books to generate revenue and lift themselves from obscurity. To me that is unethical and lazy.

+Thaddeus Howze yes. It's a mistake to assign evil to opponents.  As time passes, the weariness of age adds a little wisdom.  Case in point, Senator Orin Hatch, one of our old opponents from the seventies and eighties.  He was one of the few who spoke up for religious freedom when people tried to stop a mosque from being built close to the World Trade Center.

I was playing around with a photo of this one day.  I made a black banner across the bottom and in white letters added, "I have a dream."  I thought it was a way to represent the South.
