Okay, I have potentially one more of these I am willing to post, and like 2-3 stories that just need some careful editing that I am going to pursue publishing in specific markets where I feel my brand will fit the best and help bring them more potential readers too, even if it is only a few, both of our audiences will grow, and that will allow me to move into bigger markets and repeating, until eventually when it makes sense to cycle back through and publish in some of the same markets. Maybe the next time I would push my poetry instead. I have like four other stories that need finished in some way, but will be really good when I can find the time to finish them too. But building my audience will only increasingly give me a reason to do so, and make it through my book too.
Perhaps if I can get that elusive TA position I will be able to do more personal writing too, because, as I focus my studies more and more on studying language on the internet, which seems to be the direction where I am going, it will be increasingly relevant to have a greater presence online. If I can do it without putting money into it, or not a lot of money outside of the required technology, which I already now possess, and maybe a little money for a domain name of my own, I can justify continue doing it. I believe that it is important to try to make it as a professional writer in addition to going to school and studying and trying to find a viable way to demonstrate linguistics theory while using the internet as my example and also becoming accredited to teach at least at a community college if not a university (if I turn out to be mostly completely full of shit).
I don't know. I am just working towards something, trying to make this all work for me so I don't have to be broke for the rest of my life. I could easily take an easier route, but I believe the type of success that I require I have to earn for myself my way. Maybe I will ultimately fail, but I am not going to give up until I am sure I have failed and I haven't thus far so I am going to keep going with it.
I do love the Internet.
[Also, keep in mind that I am a little undecided about that second paragraph. I am not really sure what I am trying to say there, but it seems like some key, juicy personal rhetoric of some sort so I am going to leave it in.]
[Okay, I have since edited it, that elusive bastard, the second paragraph, not the second meta-paragraph, which this is, but the actual second paragraph. I think it better reflects what I am trying to say, however, I am not really going to go through and read it all again so it is going to remain as is until I decide to go back and correct it, as I inevitably will, at a time sometime later in the future...]
