If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it.
So did someone called David Fink:Opinions are truly wonderful things. And the most wonderful thing of all about opinions is they require no knowledge whatsoever.
And someone called Purple:The only reason I bring this up is because words have been fluttering around inside my chest for weeks now.
You should see a doctor about that.
And you should pay attention to what Bukowski says in so you want to be a writer? (not "wanna," douchebag).
Naive. Read. Pretense = fake.
Live on the streets and be fake = not possible.
Read. Research better. Read it all.
I'll make sure your heavy-handed censorship gets a comment or two at my site. You ought to learn to appreciate and grow from dissenting opinions.
May you have an interesting life.
Look, you'll be a writer when it's no longer I - I - I, Me - Me - Me. You're sounding self-obsessed and you're spinning your wheels, driving yourself crazy. You don't become a writer by trashing a famous poet whose acclaim is well-deserved. But it's possible you could become a writer. For your blog to have any value, you need to stop censoring the comment section, because it's starting to get around the internet that you are. Start learning from those who post with a contrary opinion. They might have your best interest at heart. -C
awwww yah she's just a kid. i'm sure when she wrote this she had no idea this place was here or that anyone but her friends would even see it. (Snip...Snip...)
Bukowski is himself being dull, boring, unoriginal, and very, very pretentious.
As someone who has been taking shit online for my opinions since Ms. L was 9 or 10 years old, I have mixed feelings about this.i agree with vodka, and i really don't think it's cool to have an entire thread devoted to semi-bullying/belittling some poor kid.
and i'm really not thrilled with the idea that if someone googles her name, they'll find this thread almost immediately. if no one is going to delete this thread, at least google-proof it so her name isn't involved?
I recall when a young woman I will call Wodka, whom I have known for quite some time, made similar silly statements in an online public forum for writers. She has since grown up as will our friend with the orange in her mouth. All's cool.
