Today, at this time, my article http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/09/08/love-hate-and-suicide/?_r=0
Was published a year ago, in the New York Times. It was a very proud moment for me. It still fills me with joy whenever I think about it. I wish I had written more stuff like this, but unfortunately, I don’t have control over my writing. Sometimes things come to me and it’s a hit. Sometimes it sucks but I write and publish it on my blog anyway because maybe someone can relate to it.
In the picture, that is where it all started. On a notepad. I think I do most of my best writing when I handwrite. I just wrote something today and it was a little short of 850 words. I don’t know if it will ever be a prize like this New York Times article but it will be going in my book. I won’t be sharing it on my blog because there are somethings that I don’t want published. I have published so much of the book on my blog that it’s getting hard to write “original” stuff. Of course, I then edit the blogs so that they are formatted and not gibberish for the book. I am getting close to completing the book. I might be done by the end of this month if I really work on it.
