Ghostwriting

I’ve been contracted for my first job as a ghost writer. On one hand, I am wicked excited- being paid to write isn’t a myth?!

But on the other hand…another person is getting credit for my work. My creative spewings. My madness manifested into little black dots making up arbitrary symbols printed onto a delicate, pulp-based medium. What ever am I to do? On the bright side, I shall be listed as an editor (as one often is after a bout of ghost writing).

Poetry

A lot of people run away once they hear poetry come out of someone’s mouth. In fact, once you hit “po-” they may run away, intuitively knowing what scary syllables may come next. I, for one, adore some poetry (the operating word here being “some”) and used to write it fervently- especially during my more emotional middle school years. Since then, I’ve sobered up, but I’ve found that my poetic tendencies remain. As such, I am going to start pursuing poetry with more fervor, and perhaps put up some of my work.

I know, I know! All talk, and no work yet? Well, firstly- this blog is a good example of my work (sans editing). Secondly- good point. I’ll start posting words that are somewhat organized with perhaps a cadence about them on my blog. As long as no one steals my work. You don’t want to know what I’d do then.

This is the introduction to the end of my hiatus! Perhaps I’ll be back. Or not.

Insure vs. Ensure

Insure: verb, usually pertaining to monetary matters

Ensure: to make sure of; be certain; safe

Please. Please don’t misuse this.
