2:30 pm Here we go
2:35 pm What are old people for? cool, he wrote/published a book,
2:40 pm Writing a book sounds like a lot of commitment (needs original idea, thousands of hours)
The Writer’s Market <---- I should buy that book for book proposal I have to write a book proposal before I can write a book??!! I have to identify MY audience? This is starting to sound more about the market/business 2:45 pm Thinking fresh and original Outline/detailed notes by HAND?? don't cross out/ correct anything in first draft (sounds like good advice, I think I'll try that next time) 2:50 pm Ouch, why would he tear it apart like that? That's tough...I would just cry if I had to go on 2 years of work. I guess constructive criticism is necessary though. Publisher, Copy Editor, Bluelines, how long does this take again? 2:55 pm You don't get to choose the title or cover of you own book? Wow...that sucks. Inside flap sounds difficult to summarize. Instant books? ooh....book manuscript to shelf is 18 months. I thought it would take longer. 3:00 pm Haha, so an important message is worth around $30,000. Wrinkles...blah...I think I'm going to avoid the sun as much as possible now. 3:05 pm If grandparenting is so important, what about when human life spans were shorter? I would definitely prefer to live in the society with elders. I'm not sure what I can learn about life lessons and virtues when I am 29. 3:10 pm I hate being treated like a child and expected to act like an adult. Adulthood doesn't sound fun at all. Why do we all have to follow it though? 3:15 pm Yeah, where the heck is our free time? Where does it all go? It's so ironic that we work more than a peasant in Medieval times. What is this answer that Elders have for us? 3:18 pm How many books did he write? His other book sounds something like "The Giver".
