I do hope you reconsider your decision to unsubscribe. Stick with us. There
are a lot of interesting conversational threads here that develop, some
which may be useful to you.

Writing for money is a serious business. Put another way, comedy seen from
the inside is not a laughing matter. Few people who do not daily open their
veins before a CRT understand this. We become, for better or worse,
absorbed in our projects, in choosing/using the right word/phrase. We
replay sentences, paragraphs, pages and even complete works in our sleep.
We use this service to seek answers to problems, and sometimes to let off

In 40 years of writing for cash, I've written more good words than bad.
I've written some things I'm even proud of. In 40 years I've answered my
fair share of questions from people new or trying to get into the business.
Serious questions I'll always answer, if I'm qualified. Unserious
questions, and that's the way I saw most of the questions raised by your
classmates, hit the porcelin tubes.

Stick with us. Before raising questions, look at what we're talking about
and how we're doing it. Just because some of us jumped up and down on you
and your classmates while wearing spiked shoes is no reason to quit. Learn
from the mistakes. If I'd quit every time an editor jumped over me, I don't
know what I would have done this past 39 years.
