But alas, I ain’t the sharpest tool in the tool shed.

And right there may be the fundamental problem with what I write.

I’ve no experiences on which to draw from which might resonate with anyone who needs a tiny glimmer of hope. Someone who’s reached the end of the line and is desperately searching for a way to soldier through it and survive.

It’s just not.

I’m sensing maybe I can’t.

All my experience with the pain, anguish and suffering has been gained vicariously by reading about what you all are going through.

But I love to write and so I write what I want to write.

And it sure ain’t easy.

Writing fiction on this platform is a hard way to make a living folks.

Not just this platform but anywhere.

Anybody got some old Tupperware they’re not using?

Every time I post another Henry James story I think I am successful. Each time another writer reads one and drops me a few claps and a comment I think I am a success.
