    I'm still new to writing, but even I've seen how Indie publishing is a relief zone from the CBA's starched requirements. I sent my first short story out to Mind Flights the other day and have a poem ready for Fear and Trembling, hoping to work my way into a novel. We'll see how it goes.

    I'm at technical high school looking to earn a certificate in network programing so I'll have a better chance of working my way through college. Student loans? Fuh-get-about-it. Kids at my school keep saying to just get a loan because skipping out on it after wards isn't a big deal. Then they get mad and call me stupid when I say, 'Nope.' Lol! Same thing when I bought my motorcycle. I ride a black Ninja 500. It's a cool looking bike and all kinds of people were asking how I got it, and I was like, "Duh, I got a job and paid for it." Then I was 'stupid' again. Lol! I told them to enjoy walking.

    That guy in the avatar isn't me, BTW. That's my brother Matt. He's an A/C tech and bought and rebuilt a boat last year. He likes to fish on the Gulf of Mexico. I like my bro.' I'll have to talk him into getting a motorcycle.

    look forward to getting to know you.

    Welcome, Tim. Sounds lie you have a solid grip on how to proceed through life like a responsible, dependable individual, and that's a rare find. Hang onto those convictions! They're awesome.

    See you around the boards!

    Hey, Jedi...whud up?


    Hey, saw this and reminded me off a sad run-in I had with some snarky old yenta on another site.

    "Personality is who I am...

    My attitude depends on who YOU are..." I thought it was funny.

    Hey, I finally decided that self publishing was my only alternative because two of my unpublished manuscripts would be outright burned in a CBA book house. They are gritty war novels set with heavy spriritual content. Where am I supposed to go ? Secular publishers would say its too religious and CBA would begin a prayer chain for me. But for the mean time, I'm releasing episodes in my Action Adventure /Military fiction series. Welcome ! You say you are in high school ?
