I save everything I write in all kinds of files. I can pull up even the most insignificant things, for example here is something I wrote May 13, 2008.
Dear Friend
I finally got some of my stuff published and I have been doing book signings all over the place.
I bought my RV so that when I retired I could get behind the wheel and never look back. This would have been possible before the prices of gas sky rocketed to an unbelievable high. Now I travel in multi-million dollar airplanes and I don’t worry about the price of gas because my publishers take care of most of the expenses.
The difference from what I planned and what I’m doing is now I can’t take my four legged critters with me and I always return to home base. Anyway I love book signings, I’m really good at it, I sell a lot of books and meet a lot of truly amazing people. I’m not making a lot of money but I’m sure having a lot of fun.
However I do make a lot more cabbage than I did trading my hours for the almighty dollar. If you don’t know what cabbage is, it’s the deflating dollar. “Smiles” The way our economy is headed it won’t be long before the dollar won’t be worth the paper it’s printed on. That’s surely a fact if John McCain is elected as president.
It stretches my imagination to see Obama as a contender in the democratic campaign. I was beginning to think that the only ones running were Hillary, Bill and their Daughter. Incidentally if you want my opinion I think it would be the worst thing that could happen to this country if either Obama or Hillary were to become our President. How can anyone trust Hillary with her shit eaten grin or a black man in diapers.

Here’s something I wrote in January 2008, I don’t know why I saved it but I did.

Dear Friend,
As you know or at least should know, I write a lot of replies to a lot of emails. I try to communicate with a personal response. Something that will grab you by the seat of your pants and hold onto your attention. Some of the things that I write may be beyond the realm of your imagination. Some may just seem stupid and non-sensible but at least I give all the courtesy of recognition. I like to use greeting cards to send my messages because I am notified by the card company at the precise time that they are opened.
If you haven't already figured it out let me take the time to explain the method to my madness. Everything I do has a reason. What I lack in knowledge and skill I try to gain by the things that I do. I not only use email to keep in contact with you and others but I use it as a training board to learn how to write. Since my schooling all comes from the school of hard knocks writing interesting emails puts me right back in the classroom. I learn new words and I learn how to structure them in a meaningful way. Though my grammar is poor, it improves with each email I write and I strive for the day when I'll reach perfection.
Sincerely, Big Daddy Cash
P.S. I never thought increasing the fullness of my beard would make much of difference in my overall look, but now I can't imagine leaving the house without spending 5 minutes using My Secret Formula. I use to have a thin-to-average beard that never received any attention or compliments, now after 7 days of using Cashes Secrets, I get 2-3 compliments a day. I also seem to be getting kissed by the loveliest ladies a lot more often...I now chart the course of a vertiginous day. Holy cow! Just take a look at me >>>>All in all, it was worth it, as I now know first hand what WORKS and what DOESN'T!! >>>>“WOW”<<<<

Just one more and I’ll let you get back to something more substantial.
Good morning Connie,
I realize that it may not be morning when you receive this and it may not even be today, But I wish you good anyway...
I have been turned down on a couple of my manuscripts because of poor grammar and structure. So I have decided to put a preface in all of my future books that read something like the following;
My Way
What you will find in my written material has not been edited to correct grammatical, functional and occasional spelling mistakes. I label my magical content My Way because that is exactly what it is; My Way. My signature, personality, thoughts and ideas, are presented in the only way I know and I refuse to change it because it comes from my heart not from an English book, dictionary or thesaurus. It’s hard for me to find a publisher to publish my books because they all want to do them their way and I readily admit that their way may be right but my way is me and that is the way I want it to be. What I have written in my books I have written just for YOU my reader, so please don’t judge me by my use or misuse of grammar and words, judge my books by the intent and the content. I have two great passions that I like to portray with my written word, Happiness and the Rewards Life has to offer. Therefore read what I have written Your Way but keep in mind it is written My Way.
Please give me your good advice and help me improve it if you can. Most publishers allow 200 words for a preface or comment, what I have written is exactly 200 words.
Love, Your friend Cash

  1. Big Daddy Cash, Everything that you write wouldn't be you if you didn't do it "YOUR WAY." I never find grammatical(?)errors or mispelled words. You are the perfect Poet who pays attention to teaching, loving, sharing and caring about everyone else. I hope that you also write for yourself and love yourself as much as I love you. You are Mr. Perfection, as perfect as perfect can be. Don't let the Publishers bring you down, they only want to edit for more money. Do you know that charges six cents for each word that they read. Now you know why they want to edit your work. I would love to have 'A Chosen Journey' edited for too many comma's plus the Publisher says that Jenna shouldn't talk straight out to her readers as if they were there. They call that writing in third person, I know Jenna and she wants to touch your heart when she is speaking in second and third person. I really don't care what they say, I love my novel and I refuse to change it. I guess you could say that I like doing it my way too. I send you my blessings and love.





Let me tell you a little bit about copywriters just in case you don’t already know. Copywriters are paid thousands of dollars to write one "sales letter" the first page on the site. Usually a mini site and the page seems to go on forever and ever, so that by the time you get to the bottom you feel like you’ve read a whole book. They know how to light the fire that creates the desire and then eliminate all of the objections the reader might have. A good copywriter is a gifted con artist and they don’t care whether the webpage owner is legit or not as long as they get paid. The really good ones are on contract to write entire sites. And you can mark my words they’re the ones making the dishonest webmasters rich. Regards BDC
