More Content to Come

 So you can call this the real 145,000 post if you want...

I feel more motivated than ever to create more original content now... and I know I have many great readers who support me... 

I never really thought I would have someone who was one of the top chessplayers in the world read me and link my blog... or someone who'd managed two billion dollars in shares...

I never thought I would reach tiny little islands in the ocean.

But I have...

And even though... I don't exactly feel young I know I am not old for a writer. Bernard Cornwell is producing some of his best writing into his seventies... I never thought I would talk to him either...

Warren Buffet made the vast majority of his wealth after fifty years old...

So I promise you more content is on the way... the UK as a nation has it hard over the past year... but whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger. As a nation we have overcome far greater hardships than a virus.

Here's to the future... and with your support my best is yet to come...

Blowin` In The Wind

 Blowin` In The Wind

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, and how many times must the cannonballs fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind
Yes, and how many years must a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea?
And how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn't see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind
Yes, and how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
And how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, and how many deaths will it take 'til he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind

Snowflakes

 Snowflakes

I move in your mental stream in complex dances and jigs,
I loosen up your consciousness like a syrup of figs,
Its time to emerge from camouflage, leaves and twigs,
Time to throw away the fake noses and fright wigs,
Time to face the music, no more metaphor,
Time to decide your fate, will you be cooked or go raw?
Will you be rare and bloody with your soul exposed?
Or well done, a charcoal surface with your insides froze?
And do you feel fear as you hear another door close?
Or will you just turn away and flow where the wind blows?
And are you still satisfied with the pathways you chose?
Or would you like to go back and rewrite the old prose?
Do you count the flakes when it snows
And can you feel the heat or only the afterglows?
Do you count the flakes when it snows, yeah?
And do you count the leaves when they fall and can you feel anything at all?
Do you count the leaves when they fall, yeah?
And does your life sometimes feel like one big fake orgasm?
A gut reaction, instinctive spasm in the chasm
And do your problems metamorphose into Rubik's Cubes?
Keep twisting and turning but can't be more confused
And do you sometimes feel like you've been used and abused?
You're not visibly black and blue but on the inside bruised
And does your love life leave you feeling kinda bemused?
You played all the games and you're no longer amused, ha ha
Do you count the flakes when it snows
And can you feel the heat or only the afterglows?
Do you count the flakes when it snows, yeah?
And do you count the leaves when they fall and can you feel anything at all?
Do you count the leaves when they fall, yeah?
Sometimes it feels like I'm looking though a pane of glass
I can see your mouth move but can't hear the words
Sometimes it feels like I'm looking though a pane of glass
I can see your mouth move but can't hear the words
Sometimes it feels like I'm looking though a pane of glass
I can see your mouth move but can't hear the words

Mr Writer

 Mr Writer

You line them up
Look at your shoes
You hang names on your wall
Then you shoot them all
You fly around in planes
That bring you down
To meet me who loves you, like
Me crashing to the ground
Are you so lonely?
You don't even know me
But you'd like to stone me
Mr Writer, why don't you tell it like it is?
Why don't you tell it like it really is?
Before you go on home
I used to treat you right
Give you my time
But when I'd turn my back on you
Then you do what you do
You've just enough, in my own view
Education to perform
I'd like to shoot you all
And then you go home
With you on your own
What do you really know?
Mr Writer, why don't you tell it like it is?
Why don't you tell it like it really is?
Before you go on home
And then you go home
With you on your own
What do you even know?
Mr Writer, why don't you tell it like it is?
Why don't you tell it like it really is?
Before you go on home
Mr Writer, why don't you tell it like it really is?
Why don't you tell it like it always is?
Before you go on home
Mr Writer, why don't you tell it like it really is?
Why don't you tell it like it always is?
Before you go on home

Lost

 Lost+

Just because I'm losing
Doesn't mean I'm lost
Doesn't mean I will stop
Doesn't mean I will cross
Just because I'm hurting
Doesn't mean I'm hurt
Doesn't mean I didn't get what I deserved
No better and no worse
I just got lost
Every river that I tried to cross
Every door I ever tried was locked
Oh, and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off
You might be a big fish
In a little pond
Doesn't mean you've won
'Cause along may come a bigger one
And you'll be lost
Every river that you tried to cross
Every gun you ever held went off
Oh, and I'm just waiting 'til the firing stops
Oh, and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off
Oh, and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off
Oh, and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off

Click That Sell Button

 More content this morning than there has been for ages...

All good though...

Click that sell button...

If you've been in shares a long time, and know what you're doing, have looked at the technicals and fundamentals...


And you think it's a sell just sell it.

Most of my timing on sells has been pretty decent... and there's been a few times I've THOUGHT or overthought about selling and didn't...

Not anymore though... just sold some shares nicely even when an expert said not to... they're down a bit since..

You can always buy back when you want to and there are lots of things to do with your money...



Why As a Writer or Creative It's Good to be Good With Money...

 So...

Why As a Writer or Creative It's Good to be Good With Money...


Quick one here before walk this morning...

As a writer or artist of any kind it's GOOD TO BE GOOD WITH MONEY...


Many of them aren't... as that's not what art or writing has to be about at all...

But...

Say you're a nice writer... just writing along because you like it...

HARD to make money from it... I have a bit sometimes but need to work on that aspect...

BUT if you are good with money in other areas of your life that gives you more time just to write for art.


I'm doing a few free ten minute financial coaching sessions for a few people I know who've added value to me... yet if you're a good artist I'll consider giving you one too... get in touch...



Examples

 She's got a whole lot of disco friends,

She's got a whole lot of disco friends,
Disco ladies and gentlemen,
Eating their faces from the inside out,
Freaky dancing til the late am,
Music slipping down the wall of sweat,
Shes catching fishies in a disco net,
Throwing kisses in the powder room,
Slowly sucking on a cigarette

She knows an awful lot of disco kids,
Novelty sun glasses and mullet wigs,
She says she wants to be a sti-earl-list,
Or maybe something in the music biz,
Daddies rich, mummies beautiful,
They always said she'd make a top model,
But now shes hiding out in disco land,
A happy clappy trusterfarian

Disco friends

Obviously that's not me... that's Just Jack...

Yet I think I could to around that level of song writing or poetry... that's actually a really high level... listened to that song around 100 times...


Perfectly captures how some modern women are...

Still... I reckon I can get to that level or close...


Because overall I am a writer. Not just a share writer or finance writer...

Do you think I grew up reading finance books? Nope very few until I was like about 20... I guess I've read a lot of them since then...

The thing is... JUST talking about finance it's hard to get an interesting style... I've done it in some of my articles... some of them have been edited and overall MOST of the editing has detracted from the style to be honest.

If you look at the share writing in 2017 and 2018 that was the case... will go into that in more detail in private if you're interested...

Have to say overall that the editing in the Fool articles... I can see why they did that in some ways... and some of it made it a bit better...

Still... when you've been writing as long as I have you don't really need much editing. Certainly when I'm writing fiction or anything 'non factual'... (lols)... none is needed once I've double checked it...

I'ts like I will blast it out... sometimes edit it a bit... although that can alter the flow...

Would much rather blast it out... be one or two mistakes which I will edit after publishing...


Ha... I've actually edited this post a bit to add to it...

Still writing a share book yet have a lot of other things to deal with... UK needs to get back to normal ASAP and action must be taken by people here to make it so...




My Site is Secure

 Quick post...


My site is secure. Bit annoying that sometimes you get a 'warning' when accessing it.


Best thing to type in is https://www.markhowitt.blogspot.com 

I have never asked for card details direct to this site either. I will always provide free content on this site... obviously it helps to generate money from it though.


Anyway... want to create more content and will do. Watch this space...

Financial Goal

Blasting this Out as a Facebook Exclusive for Now...

Have a Financial Goal!
Sure, money isn't the only thing in the world. I think of it just as a score in a computer game...
However it seems a lot of people are playing the game... so you might as well play it...
You do need money to live...
Have a look at how much money you have now. Then set yourself a FINANCIAL GOAL of what you want to reach by a CERTAIN DATE.
From 2011 to 2020 I actually did this myself and posted it on the net... without being specific on the net about the amount... yet I knew myself.
So what you want to do is phrase it as I WANT TO MAKE THIS AMOUNT OR MORE by a certain date. This gives you a target to reach... you can give yourself 10/10 if you reach this target... yet you can also make MORE.

Are you being OVERCHARGED on your Gas and Electricity Bills?

Are you being OVERCHARGED on your Gas and Electricity Bills?
With many people staying at home now, many are worried about their gas and electricity bills.
I've worked for British Gas, Npower and SSE. I switched hundreds of people, saving them money.
Now you probably shouldn't be with any of those companies. Others are cheaper.
Switching your gas and electricity supplier is easy... takes a few minutes. If you want to have a free chat with me about this and other money saving areas and are in the UK feel free to contact me.

Black and White

 [Verse 1]

Here comes the action Here it comes at last Lord give me a reaction Lord give me a chance [Pre-Chorus] You should follow me down [Chorus] In satellite towns There's no color and no sound I've been ten feet underground Got to get out of this satellite town [Verse 2] Here comes some action First time in my life I gotta get up to get compensation I gotta get up to get pissed tonight [Bridge] Whether you live alone Or you're trying to find your way in this world You better make sure that you don't crack your head on that pavement, man My God! what a shock! It's been preying on me and mine This is a dangerous place man This is a dangerous place, there's nothing here

[Pre-Chorus] You should follow your way down [Chorus] In satellite towns There's no color and no sound I've been ten feet underground In a black and white town [Guitar Solo] [Pre-Chorus] You should follow me down [Outro/Chorus] There's no color and no sound In the Black and White Town I've been ten feet underground In the black and white town

Free Speech

Quick post here... have to say this...
Freedom of speech is VITAL and has been hard fought for.
What a lot of big tech people are doing a lot currently, and have been doing for years is restricting free speech from people who could be broadly called 'ring wing'...
Not the best term for them really...
The 'left wing' people... they seem to be allowed to say what they want...
As long as someone is not actually directly threatening violence or something as extreme as that (which Trump did NOT do look at the facts) they should be allowed to say what they want.
Stand up for your freedoms.

Investment in Myself

Investment in Myself...
 Quick blasting out post here...
 This is kind of a start of the 2021 goal post...
 Will be investing in myself more this year... money is worthless when you die...

When I actually do buy things it's usually good value... and that makes me happy. Still won't be into the consumerist stuff but want to buy more things that make me happy.
