Dabbles is probably too strong a word.

You want to talk successful writer who still comes around, Ness is your man!

Sorry, buddy, it's Comicon. Them's the rules.
Are you kidding. The moment I was even remotely successful, semi-semi part-time pro, I'd be outta here. I'd go hide with other guys that got chased out like the Green Lama dude at the Linked-in "Comic Book Business for Creators and Creations" forums.

Who are you kidding? You'd come back once every 30 days or so to post a new promotional Spam link like certain others!

Oh yeah, I forgot about that.

I'll be like Nick Trembles, and Steel.

Success is measured so differently by people. My wife and in laws think I do nothing. My mom wonders, even with her alzheimer's if I'll ever make money. The people in the poetry community think I must have sold my soul to the devil to be published so many times.

Thanks Joe for the kind words.

Alex, you are doing what you love. You are a success.

If you're being published, Alex, then you're succeeding. Money can't be the benchmark for you. I assume most poets must have other jobs.

I just finished a book of poetry called Ballistics by a fellow, Billy Collins, who used to be the poet laureate of the United States. It was excellent. But it also was the first book of poetry I'd read in more than 10 years. And I borrowed a copy from the public library.

It's possible that most Americans consume a lot more poetry than I do, but I doubt it.

Alex was definitely one I had in mind, but I think he has one of those ever-filling souls like Thor's mead cup, he can sell it all he wants. Now if Joe can just regrow his head.

And then you go off on a paragraph about how he likely felt.

Neither does mine. I'm pointing out that he is a thief and a liar, and yet you care about how he feels.
