If the meeting was at the Taj Mahal, I hope his Phil's party walked in. Otherwise, he'd need a Oujii Board. The current 'residents', having been dead for several centuries aren't especially gabby. (And if they are, I won't hang around long enough to find out how!!!!)
Man, you leave town for 4 days and come back only to find you've been photographed and posted! Actually, I got that car mainly because the hat came with it (that's where I keep my cobra, by the way). And I wouldn't have HAD the accident were it not for Hind chattering on (as the English have a way of doing - what ARE crumpets, anyway?!)) and next thing I knew, I was dodging Elvis running from behind the knoll and...well, how come nobody took HIS picture???
I never thought about the different types of writers one could be. A very different perspective you've presented there on your site. I like that. I know that I have been accepted from the General Public as a writer but not from the researcher's point of view because of the fact that reincarnation has always been a subject of controversy, and with good reason. And you know what? I sincerely and honestly don't blame them for their viewpoint. I would venture to guess that they view my work as some sort of fiction, rather than non-fiction, is what I have labeled my work.
No matter who accepts my writings (published in web form only, at this point in time) I would probably categorize myself as more of a provocative writer than anything else, since I am up late on many nights drinking or not drinking, and always getting "writer's thoughts" at oddball times during work, showers, car drives, family gatherings, reading, etc. etc. It doesn't matter where I am or who I'm with, if I have a "writer's thought" I must run to the nearest pen and paper to jot my thoughts down, otherwise they may be forgotten forever.
I know there are more learned and educated writers than myself out there, but I truly enjoy writing and find it quite healing to the mind. It can also put things into perspective for me. The only catch to being a writer that I often find difficult is keeping up with the thoughts that come trailing in at such a fast rate I cannot keep up with them.
P.S. Notice I stated I call myself a writer, not a researcher, although sometimes I conduct research to confirm some things.
