Profound Thoughts: Am I Pimping My Fantasies?

And now, it’s time for another addition of Profound Thoughts with Writingbolt…

*******************************************************************************************************

I find myself writing similar stories…
About guys like me at different ages…
And the girls/women with whom I dream about sharing intimate moments…

But, as I ponder the possibility of being published…
I wonder…
If I put my fantasies up for sale…
Am I a pimp making money off my “ladies?”

They’re Writing Books About Reading Books? Now, I’ve Read Everything

If you’re reading books which tell you about a long list of books…written by women who have read a long list of books…just think how much more fruitful it might have been to glance at an online book review, join a book club or talk with fellow bookworms as you encounter them to compare notes before diving right into the books themselves.  If you spend 10-30 bucks on one person’s reviews of a list of books, you should pay every person you meet who tells you about a good book they read.  It’s only fair.

I fear the day when dumpsters are loaded with these review tomes like the PC books no one wants for anything but coasters and cheap painting canvas material (because regular canvases are too expensive?).  Writing books about reading books…whatever happened to social interaction and word of mouth?
