This draft was originally posted on 11-28-20. Re-posted on 01-20-21. This work is of value to me, and was an important document to make, to archive my work online, in the event of loss or destruction, also to keep track of my writing, whats been reviewed by me, left unchanged, to make sure that there is a PDF copy of my work, to ensure that my work has not been tampered or changed not to my knowledge, a draft approved by me, for review. I understand that my current settings may make it difficult to review my work, and understand that a PDF version of my work, makes it easier to search for terms, and to review at ones own leisure, creating an archive of my work is something that makes men feel good, and is a work that I am proud of, and removal of a work of value to me from my website, does not mean that it is trash, or an unimportant piece of literature created by me. There will always be rules and standards to follow to get a copyright and earn the rights to own your work and be protected by the law for your work completed, I dont think a copyright is a tool for limiting influence that if already occurring, a copyright cannot change, what is seen as being of value to some, and not of value to others. If Im ever hesitant, its probably because I am not comfortable, Ive never not been someone to not share a completed work that Im proud of, if its something Im still working on with editors, then that means I am still in the process of reviewing what has been sent back to me, and make sure that it is in my own words, sometimes editors will test for your abilities in life, a book is something that you focus on and work toward completing, its not something you write in one swoop, it takes many drafts and many submissions of uncompleted work, that then with the help of editors get assembled to make a book out of the writings you have provided, just because its work left unfinished, does not mean that I do not plan to finish writing a book and publish a self-help book one day. I think online it later became an issue sharing personal details which I dont do in book writing, so thats sharing my story, and then defeating the purpose of having a pen name, and not being made to talk about subjects that hit close to home, or subjects that others find excitement in piecemealing, that dont however benefit my feelings of stability or ensure my safety needs are met, that occurs when talking about things in life you know less about. So while my identity may be special, the minute you come across as not recognizing that you are special, can leave others in a state of misunderstanding, not knowing why you are not feeling well or what are the causes for you not feeling well, expecting you to do well, based upon your energy and tone in writing, all sharing can be very taxing on your physical and mental health, there will be many unwanted pressures in life, which you generally can only handle so long as you are comfortable with yourself, when you are not comfortable, that can result in others worrying, or not being sure about you, and should you fail to represent the issues with clarity, then it will be inquired as to what has been shared, what has been taken down, and hopefully not be viewed as not of value to you, so thats being diplomatic, thats not giving your life away or whats of value to you away with the intent of being devalued or experince a defeated sense of purpose while writing, that get swayed by a public opinion of you, to say you are someone who does not recognize their own self-worth, or who allows people to devalue them. I dont think I allow anyone to hurt me, and Im sure as a writer, you can get hurt upon publishing unfinished work, and having it not be a complete draft or ready for publishing, there is always time to wait, the lesson is never to allow yourself to subject yourself to becoming devalued, sharing unfinished work, or being made to look like writing is easy for you, and continuous, like you have another life story that can be told again, or any differently past the point of not feeling well, thats writing, it sounds good when you are well and it doesnt sound good when you are not feeling well, you are the person you describe in your writing, exemplify the person who completed the work, and made their very best effort to finish a book, or you get made to not appear as who you are in writing, sound different, so thats a matter of matching physically and mentally, to your own finished work product, and that much about life, you cannot predict, what you will sound like if you get hurt and what you get made to talk about differently in the event your life changes, or perspective, or option in life, change.
