Writers have it the worst, we put in the most and receive the least, being a writer I can tell you this honestly. People would rather look at a picture then read, so artists have it pretty good. Poets have it good too, it may be written but its usually short and it always flows well and people really donít care if they understand it or not, so long as it sounds good.

Writers donít have it like this, people hate reading something that takes more than five minutes. In pictures and poetry the beauty of the work is apparent, but with a book you have to read the entire thing to see the beauty that lies in it and people are simply too busy to read something so long. There is always something new to draw, it can even be pretty colors splashed on a canvas, and poets seem to concentrate on the same group of topics constantly and this is fine, because poets can make even a few words beautiful. Writers have to think of something completely new, or at least think of a new way to present an existing story line, or they are just ripping off someone elseís work.

Writers put in the most, receive the least and are criticized the worst. So be it, just remember, we do it all for you. We have no reason to put our stories to paper, we have the entire story in our heads, we donít have a reason to write it other than for your enjoyment. Because writing is easy, you simply sit down and open a veinÖ

(The preceding meant to offence to artists and poets, they possess a gift that I canít even begin to grasp and that I admire and respect deeply.)

Dear Flammable
I've been reading your stuff for about 6 months now, and I've always seen the beauty. So, keep opening those veins... From where I sit, its worth it.
