Don't forget to try something completely different.
This is the vociferous part of this post and it really has nothing to do with writers and writing; which, by the way, is the topic for this weeks mute Monday.
It all comes down to money. That is the single idea that has been taking up space in my head for quite some time now. All of my major problems would disappear if I could just get rid of the debt I have collected.
The odd thing is that I don't live an extravagant life and I don't waste money at all. Just being alive and going through the motions of building a life for my wife and myself has deprived me of all the freedom that I thought I had been working hard to get.
I have heard so many quotes about wealth and money and it's advantages as well as it's down side that I often want to puke when anyone spouts the innocuous platitudes that often flow from ignorant apertures.
Sheeeet, I'll take a rich mans problems over a poor man's anytime.
The wort part of all this is that I feel like I have included my wife in this abysmal situation. She, along with me must endure the stress of working hard, very hard and receiving very little for it.
I don't want to sound like I'm kvetching about not getting rich. It's not completely about the money. It's about the side effects that come along with not quite being able to get ahead of the game.
How far would you go to get your hands on some cash?
Maybe I'll just call that genie back and see if I can't wring another wish outta him.
