Actually,Yes! Two Years ago when I literally tripped over HP in a Google Search for something else, I knew that I could write. But could I write really good stuff? About lots of things? I wasn't sure of myself or my work.
HP gave me the opportunity to write, rewrite, rewrite, and rewrite, until I could read my stuff after it got cold and didn't make me blush with shame.
And, at the same time, it gave me the opportunity to explore other HPers writings and learn even more about myself.
So, am I a success? I am a Genius in my own eyes!
Am I making money? Now that's another story in itself. I make enough for my wife and I go out for a Dinner and a decent bottle of wine occasionally.
