Impressive. In desparate times you have managed to gain a wide audience in seconds. Contrats! It took a moment before I realized what I had just stumbled on to. Google Ads are a fantastic way to generate income. Have you posted videos on youtube yet? Another excellent tool to make money. My channels have been saving my financial ass lately. .

I’ve been laid off from the television industry for over a year now and seriously, even though I live no where near the lifestyle I used to live; my life is pretty good. Creativity, accepting it has always been my challenge. Stay boring, stay safe – pretty much was my thing. But after 4 years of writing my first novel all I can is: nothing will ever compare, writing is my forever. Unfortunatley, it hasn’t generated enough income. I am so poor that I’m actually sending you this email from a computer in an employment office for immigrants. As you may have caught on, I have excellent english speaking skills.
Well I wish you the best of luck, who ever you are. I hope you’re pretty smart – it would be disappointing not to get a reply back from a twit…actually that would be pretty cool too.
 Peace out phunkybrat,
