There are some sayers and then there are doers...

Mr. Me Too
Written by: Kisha Green

 I have been spending the last few weeks just thinking and basically analyzing my literary life and my offline life in general.

Anyhow, I have felt mentally drained from all of the projects that are currently on my plate. I initially wanted to help people and thought that my projects would be a good thing as well as bring exposure for my publishing company and myself.

What I failed to realize is that not everyone shares my views.  That is not a bad thing, but let me clarify before someone misunderstands what it is that Kisha Green is trying to convey.

Well, in this literary world there are Writers and Authors. Wait; before you ask where I am going with this rant, there is another category called “aspiring”. These people will never publish a damn thing but they are all in every literary mix.
They will post a million and one notes on Facebook and let you read snippets on their blog, but a published book will NEVER happen. They may even send you book cover samples, but they are not ever going to be anything but aspiring.

Writers are people who simply write as a hobby and are content just W-R-I-T-I-N-G—nothing more and nothing less. They don’t care if they are going to be published or possibly ever become a NY Bestselling author. They write because it is their passion; they do not want any monetary compensation or notoriety.

Authors are those who love to write any and every chance they get and live, eat, and sleep literary. They want to have their work published whether it is self-publishing or even getting a literary agent, and shopping his or her book around for a traditional publishing house book deal. They write books, articles, short stories, and whatever else they can get their hands on.

"OH…you wrote a book?"

"Oh ok—yeah me too!"

"You wanna self publish?"

"Yeah, me too!"

“You’re working on your next book?"

"Yeah, me too!"

When I initially decided to publish anthologies through my DivaBooksInc  publishing company, I thought that I would be meeting authors, but have come to the realization that all people aren't ready to be authors and are rather happy just being writers. This was a hard pill to swallow since I know myself that I love the literary world.  I love, meeting and networking with newbie authors, like myself, as well as seasoned authors.

Anyone who has had the pleasure of talking to me on the phone knows that I can go on for hours about LITERARY HOLLYWOOD!!

I completed four anthologies and the screening process was…exhausting, LOL!

"OH,you wrote a book?"

"Oh ok.  Yeah, me too!"

"You wanna self publish?"

"Yeah, me too!"

“You’re working on your next book?"

"Yeah, me too!"

You can see where I am going with this—LOL—I am sure you have had this conversation with someone at some time or another.

"Oh, you wrote a book?"

"Oh ok.  Yeah, me too!"

"You wanna self publish?"

"Yeah, me too!"

“You’re working on your next book?"

"Yeah, me too!"

Yeah, Mr. Me Too is too funny and the reasons for this rant today. Plus, I was listening to the Clipse song called "Mr. Me Too” and said to myself, I have to write about this because there are a lot of those people out there in literary. So, basically, what I am ultimately trying to say is, SOME PEOPLE MAKE MOVES…WHILE OTHERS FAKE MOVES!!

My little words of wisdom would be “PLEASE SAY WHAT YOU MEAN, AND MEAN WHAT YOU SAY!” That way, no one can ever question your character.

Here is also a word we all should be familiar with. I am, ARE YOU???
