I am aspiring to become a professional writer...hoping one day to write for some kind of video game publication or something similar...but I'll take whatever I can get in the meantime for the experience. I use Hub Pages mainly to practice my craft and as a showcase of my work for potential employers. My question is, am I wasting my time here...is there a better alternative and/or a better way to go about things? As you can see from my Hubs my writing style is very unorthodox, which I know is not for eveybody, but I'm hopeful it will one day seperate me from the heard. I welcome any feedback.

You are right...if you do make any money doing it (regardless of the amount), you are a professional. I guess I should have said I wanted to make a living out of it...that would have been a better choice of words.
Thank you so much for the advice...I greatly appreciate it. What books have you written, I would be interested in checking them out?
I've written business success books about project management, quality management, and more. Amazon, type in Sid Kemp. Quality Mgmt Demystified my thinking about life, Proj Mgmt Made Easy a great place to start. Perfect Solutions Dif Empl SIt, fun!
@Sid that is awesome. I am going to check out Amazon and see what I come across.
You have a lot of good advice...very helpful and gives me a lot to think about it. Thanks for taking the time to respond to my question and for giving me the benefit of your wisdom...I really appreciate it.
I have thought about writting a book, but I just don't know where to start. I have a lot of interesting (and off-the-wall) ideas...just not too sure it would sell.
Michael - I have a self-published book called "Your first book" to help you write your first book. Contact me through "follow / email Sid" on profile if interested.
@Sid I'm not really sure how to e-mail users through Hub Pages, but I am interested in finding out more about the book you're talking about.
Thanks for bringing that to my attention, I was completely unaware of that. I went ahead and corrected some things on my hubs, so in about 24 hours or so they should all show up.
