I am Different

I am Different

I am Different                           I am the

I am Individual                        way the

I am Funky                               world

I am Free-willed                       made me

I am Eccentric                           and yet

I am Rare                                  I am me

I am Extraordinary                  I am the

I am Nonconformist                Best me

I am Tenuous                           I can be

As a writer, you are always a little different and unique. We live to express themselves through their poems and stories.
Publishers, Editors, Agents, Betas, Readers, remember this when you work with writers. Every change, every critique, everything you do regarding that writer’s work has a direct effect on that writer.

A combination of those effects are the bulk of the reason why I have ended up bricked into my little corner — locked in an unbreakable chest which stops me getting to success. My novels can never be published now. My greatest muse can never be enjoyed by readers who may have enjoyed her stories.

I continue to be the best me I can be through my short stories. Yet the me I am now is different. I am hollow, passionless and I write with no dreams and goals. I write purely because my head is full of character and I have to write to be happy and for something to do.

Remember, Publishers, Editors, Agents, Betas, Readers —You have the power over the writers. Don’t use it to destroy them!


Thanks for reading my friends. As always there are more stories to be enjoyed (I hope) in the Short Stories and Short Stories 2 tabs.

Have a great day!

      1. I have quite a following on twitter @MBWorkhouse is my handle. The Workhouse was my magical mystery series that was never to be.

        My hands are almost done for.
        My bank accounts empty
        My souls empty

        I have nothing more I can do or give.

  2. Will you stop 😜 I’m sorry, I’m not trying to make light of it. It’s just so hard to hear that someone as creative and passionate and enthusiastic as you are has decided it’s too late to fulfill his dream and feels empty. It is most certainly not too late. Have you considered self-publishing? I’m not referring to it as some sort of consolation prize, but as a real option. This isn’t the field of “digi-reads” anymore. You could really create and design a great book or series. Why let people who are too lazy to write their own books criticize and tear you down? It’s so easy for them. Maybe it’s time to give the big “FUCK YOU!!” to those people and take your life, your dreams, into your own hands.

      2. Ohhh yeah I hear you. I have a little compression in my neck and it affects my hands too. I can’t imagine how it must be with real damage. Well, despite your saying your life is over, I am still pulling for you.

      3. My neck damage was caused by a lorry driver not putting his parking break on. the lorry rolled forward as I stepped out the back with a parcel I was unloading and I fell down the gap and hot my neck on the concrete wall.

        Sorry, you have the same problem.
