Blogging Through The Years

I had my first blog post in 2006( yes I am that old) and at the time I went by duke1959 which was ok but over time I started a new blog 1959 duke which lasted just about forever. Due to the fact, there was too much pain and suffering in them I closed it down sometime back. Life really wasn’t much fun at that point. Then comes the question as to why now? Circumstances in life have changed things so much of my life. Frankly writing is my passion and if I don’t follow it now when? The old-time clock of life is just chugging along and of course, I don’t have any idea when it will stop!

Fashion Industry and Drugs Lords

Someone would think that the fashion industry has nothing in common and that is not true on two fronts. The first being the big lie they tell young women that having their product will somehow make them feel better. The other being profit margins.. A woman’s beauty has nothing to do with how she looks. The fashion industry has been involved in a crime that is in some ways is worst than drug lords. At least with drug lords, you know what the game is at least.

The thing about the fashion industry is they convince young girls and women that they have to have the newest trend. They have been very good at it for a very long time. We all know that a size 9 by one manufactured by one company is not the same as another. Magazines that promote a false narrative are one of their biggest tricks. Women out there everywhere let me in on a little secret what a potential partner is more concerned about is between your ears and not how your body looks. Physical attraction only lasts for so long if your partner can put two brain cells together. No long-term relationship will last if it’s based on looks.

Why I get such joy in hammering the fashion industry and drug lord’s parents can’t be left off the hook totally. I have seen firsthand when a mother tries to live her life through her daughter. In the end, it is your choice as a parent.

Do you want to raise a young woman into adulthood that is a joy to be around while also being smart and accomplished? If not you are doing a major disservice.

Writers Find Your Lane………..

While driving down the road there are lanes in which you are to stay. I think most people at least try to do that.

Then there are people who have a passion for writing and often they have no idea what lane of writing they are in and don’t care to find out! Then they wonder why they don’t get more attention?

The success of any restaurant franchised company is the fact that when you walk into one of their locations you pretty much know what to expect. The same should be true with your writing. You do not go to a McDonald’s for a fine steak or to a 5-star restaurant for a hamburger.

So as a writer you need to decide which lane is best for you and stick to it regardless. Otherwise, you will be a Mcdonald’s that is trying to sell fine steak!
