Net Author - Reference Site

Net Author - Reference Site for Writers To: NetAuthor@yahoogroups.com From: JASON NOLAN Subject: Re: what Robert loves about writing This is a hard topic. I sometimes wonder if he does love writing. Personally, and this is primarily a result of experience with him online via email and CVEs, I think his love is placed elsewhere. I think he loves making other people write. Yep, there is it in a nutshell, or case, as the case may be. He promotes, supports, cajoles, implores, implodes and just all around transmogrifies your average, usually American, adult, without respect for age, gender, orientation, race, religion or from the respectable consumer of media products into a demon of discourse, villian of verse, a paragon of prose, or even an angel of alliteration. Loves to write? Ha! He's Robert the Motivatrix if you ask me. Now if you had asked the question, ""What do YOU love about writing?"" and I took the YOU to refer to ME, then the answer would have been clear as day. I don't. I hate writing. But you see, I met Robert, and he infected me with a discourse metavirus that has wrapped itself around my brainstem, and, as Isaiah says, as recorded by William Blake ""I was then persuaded, and remain confirmed, that the voice of honest indignation is the voice of God, I cared not for consequences but wrote."" And my life has been a shambles ever since. Jason"
