    Re: Men Going The Right Way

    What do we have here, a newly minted fire eater? Well young Jedi, go for it.

    I make the world a little bit worse every day, that's my purpose in life.

    I beat a Range Rover with a Kia on a snowy mountain road one morning a few years ago. I don't figure I'll ever top that one.

    When your older than dirt your biggest ambition is to just keep going. I don't slay dragons anymore.

    If you expect any response to this newbe, maybe you should provide answers your own questions first.

You're woes are nonsense! the world is a better place with you in it. That's why society keeps you around.

    Sure thing!
    I'm a game developer,
    First I'm going to publish a novel,
    I'm going to write the story to my masterpiece and make hella FU money and then I'll continue work on a 3D space sim for the PC.
    I'm going to get started today by writing out the outline to my novel and organize my manuscript which is right now at about 40000 words.

    I'm a man! Oh well, do what you wish, my friend. Just felt like it would be better to focus on the positives and have some direction. With all this talk about what not to do, My feeling is we would be better served to talk about what to do. Where to go with your life, where to spend our time. If I'm not welcome here, so be it. You all pull the strings here.

    Last time I checked, society keeps a lot of people around we'd be better off without. But I thank you for the kind words.

    Being a bookworm, I have given many authors money over the years. But it looks like a slippery slope to me. There are a hundred books left on the shelf for every one I bought. How's a noob going to make money with those odds? Specially now days. I have heard that having a good editor is half the battle of becoming an author, but what good editor is going to want a rookie? Guess you'll have to figure that one out. I'm not trying to discourage you, only saying that being an authors not easy. You got a day job to tide you over till the money rolls in?

    You're welcome enough Lucas. I like Jackoff, am skeptical of you having any real overnight sucess but we wish you luck just the same.

    Re: Men Going The Right Way

    Well, yes, I suppose I might have to expand my time horizons a bit, but I've got numerous writing awards under my belt. A little book out that seems to fair really well with reviewers. Everyone who has read the book has loved it. 100% positive feedback from people even who dislike me.

    Re: Men Going The Right Way

    Mostly I like true life adventure. Soldiers, Mounteers, that sort of thing. Peter Hathway Capstick ran African big game safaris before turning author. All his books are worth a read. Try to find used ones, his family has only sold hardcovers after he died. Tristan Jones, a lifelong sailor who wrote many fine books is another favorite. Heart of oak, his experience in the Royal Navy in WW II was probably his best.

    I agree with what you say here. Have aspirations, realistic or not it makes little odds so long as you are aiming at something.

    Your own statements though suggest that you just came up with your aspirations as though in response to my question. They sound, I dunno, hollow, but what the hell do I know about about you?

    My suspicions are running riot, but I've been wrong before and maybe I am now. Maybe.

    I'm just a member and pull no strings. Introducing yourself and explaining a bit about yourself would go a long way to alleviating suspicions. There is an Intro sub-forum for this purpose here:

    A suggestion to you sir, calling a moderator's comments "silly" and making comments about his choice of username (which has great validity amongst MGTOW) gets you off to a really bad start.

    Re: Men Going The Right Way

    That is something that appeals to me as well. Rarely read fiction. I like Biographies by Walter Isaacson and Ron Chernow. As you could have probably guessed, I read a whole lot of self-help books. I particularly like Brian Tracy and Napoleon Hill as well as James Clear.

    So, this book you are writing: would it happen to be a motivational book available today in e-pub form for the low, low price of five bucks?

    The right way is different per person. Whatever the right way is for you is building up whatever lifestyle gives you the most joy and fulfillment without hurting others.
