The View from Sister Alma Rose’s Front Porch

Dear Sister Alma Rose — About a year ago I decided to put all my eggs in one basket, in a manner of speaking. I have been a writer all my life, but I have written mostly other people’s stuff, except for some poetry that won awards. I got a lot of encouragement from clients, friends, and strangers, so I took a leap of faith. I have had some small paybacks but some larger setbacks. Now what? Signed, Starving Artist

Dear Starving Artist — Sister Rose requires more information before she can advise you. Are you living in a cardboard box? Have you sold your virtue, your vital organs, your plasma? What have you written? If you have completed books, does anyone know about them? Most important, is the Universe with you or against you? How do you know?
