So you are lying huh? Why lie? I think you can write, anyone can, the only thing that is hard is getting your writing published.

If I say good things about the Bible, I alienate fifty percent of the population. If I say bad things about the Bible, I alienate fifty percent of the population. If I say good things about Donald Trump, I alienate fifty percent of the population. If I say bad things about Donald Trump, I alienate fifty percent of the population. Everything I say is wrong. If I said I love everyone equally, it would alienate fifty percent of the population.

Who are you, JaggedEdge? I've had a lot of online relationships with European women who don't speak the same language as me. You remind me of them.

I assume you're a man. But these days such assumptions can get a man fired.

I wonder why so few people are responding to your initial question.

Yes you are right I am a man. And I don't know why not many people are responding to my question. And I laugh at the fact that you said that I remind you of European women.

I adore European women. So take it as a weird compliment.

I was learning how to speak italian by watching a YouTube channel by a woman named Sara Albanese. But I fell in love with her, so I had to stop watching. I fall in love totally. I'm not an idealist who is looking for a perfect partner. I love even the worst in people. If a woman cheats on me it makes me more passionate about her.

Yes, and I don't mean to go off topic (even though we already are) but I was wondering if you would like to exchange novels and we could maybe even work on one together.

I'll read your novel. I'm a control freak when it comes to my writing. It's the only thing I can feel decent about.

I did a quick google and he is a filmmaker and a screenwriter, he doesn't seem to be a poet but he has a novel written and a few other works. Does he write poetry?

Email is all I use. I send so many private messages to myself that I'm always close to full, ideas and lines for poems, you know.

I'd rather reign alone in mediocrity than find glory with help. When you're able to make it day to day without society, the voices in your head become the harshest and most frightening critics and editors

That's true but I don't know about sending messages to yourself, seems like a waste of time.

I like to store ideas where I can to decrowd my consciousness. There's a The Sandman comic book where a writer is punished by having so many ideas he can't function anymore.

Is the Sandman created by Neil Gaiman?
