Taxi Cab Driving Private Investigator Writer Editor, and Buy a Fucking House

Remember how I mentioned I can do whatever I want? I’m going to be a cab driver. And I’m going to make sure I work for a private investigator. I want to be able to financially support my writing habit. I’m going to be being paid relatively steadily for writing and editing, which is a great start for having only marketed myself as a professional for just over a year. 

I’m also going to buy a house with a great friend of mine – partly because I can stand her for extended amounts of time, partly because I want to save money, and partly because I want a rich, creative atmosphere (she, too, is a writer/editor creative person). 

Here is the plan:

  • Save up at least 15k combined
  • Put a down payment on a house ( x < 35k )
  • Take out a mortgage 
  • Knock down any shitty walls
  • Replace flooring with nice hardwood
  • Add pretty light fixtures
  • Paint walls
  • Have studio – style house that I actually own (with someone)

It can, and it will, be done. The goal of 2014 is to buy a house and get an office. I’m on a roll. 

Creative Insanity Seeks Student

I think I’m crazy.

A wack-job with nuttiness comparable to Jack Kerouac or Hunter S. Thompson. I’m posting this because I don’t want you to feel alone if you feel insane too. I eat handfuls of coffee beans so I can stay up later working.

I write books, full papers, practice music, blog, and watch Game of Thrones every week, with other little events. Oh yeah, and I’m in school.

Ain’t nobody got the time for that.

Except people who have coffee beans at their disposal.

I’m super intense. It scares me sometimes. It confuses others. I’m the most volatile, angry person at times (although I’m getting better at internalizing it) and other times I am the most loving, passionate person.

Okay, so I’m always passionate- it’s just not always for good reasons.

I can be the most detached or sympathetic person you have ever met. I will shout the highest of praises to doves in the sky or I will tear your work into the ground before dumping spaghetti sauce on it and letting ants feast away the work which you tried your best to please me with.

I do know one thing- I’m the greatest of teachers. I’m arguably one of the greatest people in the world at simplifying concepts, and retaining information. This means I can teach you to retain information and apply it.

Correctly. Doing anything other than your best is failure. So don’t be a failure.

I will teach you how to write well. With passion. With detail. With bad ass dialogue. Who wants a book that is second rate? Nobody.

You want the reader to put down the book and go-

“Well I’ll be damned. That book had so much going on in it, it was well crafted, and the characters felt so real.”

I’m going to start doing pep talks. I might not be so hyped up all the time, but this is what you are getting for now. If you want my writing services, feel free to contact me. I’m more than happy to offer advice.
