You’ve got to sell your heart

heartIn 1938 aspiring author Frances Turnbull sent a copy of one of her stories to Francisc Scott Fitzgerald. In the feedback he offers her there’s one great piece of advice: “You’ve got to sell your heart, your strongest reactions, not the little minor things that only touch you lightly, the little experiences that you might tell at dinner. This is especially true when you begin to write, when you have not yet developed the tricks of interesting people on paper, when you have none of the technique which it takes time to learn. When, in short, you have only your emotions to sell.”

You can read the rest of the letter here. It’s really worth the time, and it’s the kind of advice writers give only to closest friends. It’s not something you can tell anyone about, because most people will think you’re crazy.

Now, about selling your heart… Continue reading

The long road…

roadA while ago I wrote a short story about a guitar player walking down a dirt road toward a crossroads late at night. It was a long, excruciatingly painful walk, because he was about to get the thing he wanted most in the world: the ability to play the instrument like no other human being.

Of, course, he had to pay a price.

I think that agonizingly long walk towards a tangible goal is part of the price he had to pay in order to reach that certain goal.  Continue reading

Strong Buy on Silver

on USLV and sell ESK because it’s a major component on motherboards and solder.

Strong short on FDX because of AMZN Popcorn and the strong possibility of a WMT competing platform.  Also, because oil may spike upwards, short AAL.

Strong short of AAPL because of the wave of chromebooks and the number of Retinas on the books of AXP, M and V.

First of all, I’d like to thank Amanda, Jeffrey, and Owen for their donations.

Secondly, I’d like to thank everyone who purchased reblogs, advertising, and signed paperbacks in the last weeks. Everyone who sent encouragements, comments, e-mails and such.

The cost of the next appointment, there’s still $500 left to raise. Until Monday.

There are no words to describe how important this is, how I feel, how I have been struggling. I tried to describe this feeling in quite a lot of posts lately.

It is crucial. I am fighting for my health, for my well being. There are no words to describe how important this is.

If you’d like to help me out, you can donate any amount you see fit here.

Any amount at all helps me, it brings me closer to raising the funds needed, brings me closer to getting my next appointment and treatment and closer to a normal life again.
