    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."

    If it weren't so true, it'd be even funnier.

    That is OBSCENE.

    Surely writers get paid after they die !!  wink

    Once I lived under the misconception that I would make money this side of death, but to think that there is an eternity with little reward ahead of me isn't very inspiring.

    Still, great pain makes great stories  smile

    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

    Just Peace

    "ah I don't need heaven or hell to live happily ever after"

    but wait no readers - no turmoil - no despair

    what will i write about and why?

    Glad everyone like it... I guess we don't write for money, but because we are passionate people. Now that is irreplaceable and better than money can buy... making money out of it is just the icing on the cake!
