book or blog? writing in the digital age.

well that seemed like the fastest year ever. the days just flew by and some of my work vanished in the wind. like journalspace just deleted everything that one year. so to has poetry.com and now blog.com vanished in a puff of smoke. dont think i had anything unique on either site but if i did its gone forever. just like bebo and xanga. some sites you just cant trust.
its better to write books than do blogs for your poetry or fiction or novels. at least there is a good chance that amazon wont go poof in the wind. save the blogs to be home pages to promote your books or art or just to keep followers up to date. 
never know if your inks will be available online next week or not. 
and if you start a blog pick a site that might be there still in eight or nine years. and keep backups if you can. 
i loved writing at journalspace but one day it just vanished.... 
keep the hard copies and keep dreaming. 
better to write in a notebook and then transfer to a word or google doc. and no one is going to buy your book if it is available for free online. maybe if theres just a teaser to get them hooked, but not a whole book. 
keep dreaming and reaching for the stars.

The Book of Raymond



  1. The poet paints pictures in your mind with words and phrases. 
  2.  The writer writes from the head, but the poet writes from the soul.
  3. The poet pictures images in his mind and then paints them in yours with words and phrases.
  4. poetry is a view of the world from the point of view of the dreamer who transforms his visions to words and publishes them for the world to share. 
  5. To know who you are you have to know where you came from.
  6. The true artist paints from the soul and true beauty comes from within.   
  7. poetry is a journey of the mind through the ink of a pen in the hand of storyteller with a vision read by a viewer and translated into the minds eye.
