How to be the best at writing and win at life?

No, really, I’m asking.

I’ve learned that there is more than one way to skin a cat.

I wish this was a literal article I read, alas, no one has written anything about cat skinning, that I’ve seen. I suspect this is frowned upon subject matter. To be clear, I don’t actually want to see a cat skinned (I’m not a psycho) I would just be interested on how somebody might craft a story on such a topic.

Turns out, I am not adept in any of these areas.

Niche’s scare the hell out of me, because nobody puts Baby in the corner, man! I can’t nail down any topic because I want to be free in my abilities to write about all of the things.

I will stick to satire writing, I tell myself.

I am marginally good at making people laugh, and as so many motivational stories tell me these days, the more I do it, the better I will get.

I keep thinking that I should have never turned down that ghostwriting job I was offered a few months ago.

Sure it paid less than a cent per word, the work was insanely demanding, and I wasn’t able to use the business’s name on my resume, but at least I could have said I was working. Sort of.
