On Being a Failed Writer

This article touched my heart deeply of being a failed writer. Success doesn’t come that easy. We got to earn it.

Writers Without Money


At the age of 50, I am a failed writer. Except for a few articles on CounterPunch, everything I’ve published has been self-published. I’ve worked tens of thousands of hours, written hundreds of thousands of words, and have never made a dime. Had I spent the same amount of time at a minimum wage retail job, I’d be rich, or at least a shift-supervisor at Starbucks. I haven’t been able to find an audience. You probably won’t even read this.

So why don’t I quit?

I tried. From the age of 25 to the age of 50, I had one goal In life, to cure myself of the urge to write. But I failed. Let me explain.

The urge to write should never be confused with the ability to make a living by writing, or even the ability to express yourself by putting words down on paper. T. S…

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,500 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 58 trips to carry that many people.

Into the World of Positivity

The twilight embarks the journey into the world of positivity,
Setting his eyes on the majestic blue moon of success,
Cruised the solitary young man on his sailboat.
Battling and evading the devastating waves,
Reached the battered man on the shore of the dreamland.

Floating on the glass of reality and fairy tales,
Glittered the magical island of positivity.
Welcomed by a flock of singing Bluebirds,
The unsung hero looked at the island in wonder.

Looking at the blue skies,
The man witnessed a rare spectacle.
Came the rain through the mystic rainbow,
Kissing the forehead of the blue moon,
Into the magical world of positivity.

Aspiring to achieve his dream,
Holding the sands from the island of positivity,
Looking into the eyes of the reality,
The man of steel begins his struggle for success.

Going Bald with Attitude

Only few men are blessed with Baldness, a condition when men tend to lose their hair and become bald. However, only a few from that lot accept the reality that they are bald. While the rest of them hide themselves with a wig and fake themselves to the world. I’m writing this post addressing to those brave men who accept the reality and to those men who run away from the reality.

Sporting the Bald Look...
Sporting the Bald Look…

I see a majority of men sporting a wig to hide their baldness. They consider themselves to be weak before the rest of the world without hair on their head. They lose their confidence and self-esteem. And they fake it by taking this escape route. But when an other person sees them and finds out that it’s a wig. At that time, they feel very low about themselves. And from the other person’s perspective, the guy sporting a wig is considered a coward.

Now, consider those brave men who sport the bald look with attitude. They accept the reality and fact that they are bald. They consider themselves lucky to be bald. These men go bald gracefully. The baldness shows that the they are shouting to the world about their new bald look. These brave men have lost only their hair but they possess optimism, broad outlook, courageousness and more importantly the attitude. It is this attitude that makes them sexy.

Being bald is sexy and cool.

In order to prove few of my friends wrong, I went for the complete bald look. And that took people around me by surprise. They asked me that if I had gone mad? I said that I needed a change. I know the I will become bald after 10 years, so I thought how would I look after 10 years without hair. So I decided to try the complete bald look. I chose the right time for the look, as it was the arrival of summer season.

Yes, I just loved my new style. In order to compliment that look, I wore a brown bead chain and sported my favorite Goatee beard and black aviators. I went for the gangsta style with attitude.  But I did not sport an earring. As usual, people with narrow mindset hated my new look and there were people who just liked my style very much. But I didn’t mind.

I was sending a message to the world that going bald is so cool and sexy. After some days, another guy sported the bald look with a french beard. When we happened to meet each other, we smiled and gave a firm handshake. We have never spoken to each other before but the bald factor made us to connect instantly.

So, it is the attitude that makes the difference. I’m very happy to sport this bald look. It gives you style, attitude and the additional confidence to your personality.
