How many writers or artists do you know that were unrecognized or even ‘penniless’ before their deaths? Many of their relatives even became really ‘rich’ after they died. Here are some of the writers I’m referring to:
Henry David Thoreau
Edgar Allan Poe
Emily Dickinson
Franz Kafka

How would you feel if you abased a poor penniless writer (like me) which turned out to be famous? I just hope you don’t commit the terrible mistake.
