A writer died and was given the option of going to heaven or hell.
She decided to check out each place first. As the writer descended into the fiery pits, she saw row upon row of writers chained to their desks in a steaming sweatshop. As they worked, they were repeatedly whipped with thorny lashes.
"Oh my," said the writer. "Let me see heaven now."
A few moments later, as she ascended into heaven, she saw rows of writers, chained to their desks in a steaming sweatshop. As they worked, they, too, were whipped with thorny lashes.
"Wait a minute," said the writer. "This is just as bad as hell!"
"Oh no, it's not," replied an unseen voice. "Here, your work gets published."
Just a funny joke!
That is OBSCENE.
Surely writers get paid after they die !!

Still, great pain makes great stories
A look of despair appeared on her face but wait there is another door just in sight.
As she enters the door there is a beauty she has never seen before --- no writers -- no readers
"ah I don't need heaven or hell to live happily ever after"

what will i write about and why?

Yeah !! We write just to express ourselves and our beliefs.

how do believers think they would feel going to heaven without their unsaved loved ones - wouldn't it be upsetting?

I have always hated the "Got Jesus, better get some or you’re going to hell" speeches with a passion certain religious groups live by. It is not that I don't believe in God, or Christianity, it is just...
