When I first started on Hubpages I was a fresh faced young idealist, interested in words for their own sake, the ebb and flow of thoughts and ideas, a romanticism born of energy and a symbiotic empathy with nature and nurture - a yin and yang of expression versus content - my chakras in one with an inner, but sometimes outer being.
Now I'm a hard nosed marketeer. Rock on. Result.
It doesnt have to be like that! You dont HAVE to be on the dark side of the force. Keep your symbiotic empathy and feel the love, write the love and spread the love
What gave it away? Was it the chakras?
Nope. It was the "Rock on". Where were the chakras?
To whom do you think you might've sold it to?
I think he is pondering on putting his soul up for sale to Mammon!
He could try ebay; though I still think renting is better...
I'd imagine that would be the God Of Marketing. Can't think of any other more suitable candidate. Or maybe he flung it into the ether, right along with his ideas about making money is easy as pie - no effort, no sweat.
@ Mark - welcome to the club. You're in good company. Though being a Stickman - you're entirely unique
WOW. I must have a reading comprehension problem because I have NO IDEA what you’re saying. NONE. Makes me feel kinda stupid tho, since others seem to be reading you just fine here. What am I missing? What is a "Marketeer"? And what does this mean, "my chakras in one with an inner, but sometimes outer being."
You read it wrong.
It's "My sneakers were in one hand but my otter was still peeing".
Or at least that's what I get when I speed read it again.
think he meant "my chakras AT one with inner, but sometimes outer being" not that it means a damn thing at all! but possibly he was saying "I've found peace. My chakras are all aligned and my energy is flowing with superb righteous exactitude. Giving me goose bumps! all day long!"
You can have two accounts; one where you're a 'hard nosed marketeer', and one where you're ... well, as Shazwellyn described.
My two readers tell me it feels much much longer than that.
3 readers Mark.
I read the sales pitch aimed at we male panic buyers and met myself.
You have a good sense of humor. Not sure how much the hub will make though.
You talked me out of ever going in a shop again, even for food!
Thanks earnest, I need to work on you. I feel a lingerie sale coming on.
"Have I Sold My Soul?"
Nah, you are just renting it.
As long as your friends and family can't tell the difference between your two personalities, you should be fine. Just try to mix in some fun stuff on occasion, otherwise you'll burn out. I usually check out the forums on days when I don't feel like writing anything.
Writers have souls?
He should have said "tortured soul". It's OK to have that.
Wow! News to me! That explains my small modicum of success, no doubt! My wife tortures my soul regularly! I didn't realize it helped my writing, though! Thanks Honey!
Just curious, how much did you get for your soul?
hey brenda, how are you?
my soul is not worth beans - I found this out when I was really young so I haven't had to worry about that any.
crackers - ? what about inner crackers? what was that? you are all crackers! meaning whacko~!
Now that is an avatar…
You can have it?
Do you actually have to sell your soul or can you rent it out as Randy said? Its like making a Deal

How do you know if you sold your soulThis question used to intrigue me when I was a child because I was told a story at Sunday school about a boy who sold his soul but when I asked the question how would you know if you have sold your soul ? the teacher just giggled and said "oh you would...

If you sold your soul. Could you buy it back?I ran across a Q&A on hubpage where it asked how would a person know he sold his soul? And it got me thinking after I read a post made three years ago by a person asking for help saying they thought maybe they had sold their soul. No response...
