If you're going to write,
...you should give up your love of sailing. There will be time for that later.
...you should give up some relationships. There will be time for that later.
...you should give up your country. There will be time for that later.
...but you should always remember your blogging password. There won't be time for that later.
Back to our regularly broadcast schedule.

The demons that live inside of all writers, are the Demons which they write about.
Injustice. Infidelity. Loss.
Some pain is arguably viable - the ridges of skin from a burn.
Some pain is arguably invisible - the soul of parents with missing children.
Some fathers write about the loss of their children to foreign forces.
Others write of the loss of their predecessor.
One man's demons, is another chapter of the Major Project.

Some writers have full time occupations until their income allows them to give it up. I received a check last week and based on it's value, it may be a while before I give up my
Stephen King worked in a laundromat writing in the morning before he went to work.
There is hope for me yet.
We write not for the money but fot the message.
But the money will make the message a lot more fluent in publication.

The Major Project.
I will have a major book release by the time my life is over.
Not for the money.
Not so I can walk into a book store and see my name on the spine of a series of books.
Not so I can be on television of have a major motion picture based on the book.
But so my children will know just what their Father went through.

Today's the day the Teddy Bears have their picnic.
Feb 28. An iconic day in history.
A buddy of mine has a birthday.
A woman I once knew has a birthday - she once sent me a pager that she was ready to settle down. Apparently not.
On Ancestry.com, my grandparents were married today.
Twenty years ago my divorce was finalized.
Thank you, Tori Amos.

Got a bill today charging me for the fraudulent change of my account by a Verizon Wireless employee. Verizon Wireless charged me for a change they made without authorization.
Time to rectify their error - 22 hours and it's still not corrected.
Verizon Fraud Game - change your account, because it will take more of your time to correct than it does to just pay it,

Day 10, and Verizon Wireless still can't get it's own Customer Service alibi straight.
The story so far. One telephone number has been nuisance calling my personal cell phone. I contact Verizon Wireless, they can't block it from their end - it has to be done through my on line account. Completed.
The nuisance calls keep coming.
Telephone Tech Support, they block the number - the calls keep coming.
Telephone a Tech Coach who claims the block is not present - despite hard evidence on my end. They go to block the telephone number from their end, and the number now "mysteriously" appears as a blocked number that they can't explain - but the calls keep coming.
Today I telephone Customer Service - who confirm that no block exists, but upon further review, report that the block is on all telephone numbers - except the phone receiving all the calls. I'm calling them out - incompetent, deceitful, and failure to provide the service requested.
"You haven't been inconvenienced in any way by the nuisance caller," the Customer Service agent claims.
Ten days, eight calls and eleven hours on the phone to Verizon, broken sleep, and the inability of a cell phone company to fulfill their service agreement apparently is not enough for Verizon Wireless to be considered an inconvenience for their customers.
Can you hear me now moving to @Sprint.
