Now that I co-own 60+ acres of prime farm ground, I’m thinking about farm subsidies.
My momentary vision: some sort of writers’ subsidy program. Getting paid, just like some farmers, not to produce. Acres and acres of blank paper, lying fallow.
Enjoying the idea, rolling in the papyrus for a moment, but then itching to scratch the odd scrap. Knowing I could never fulfill my part of the subsidy bargain.
I raise a glass to the new year
–and to being an active participant in creating whatever harvest may come from my efforts and those of my compatriots.

Happy New Year. I think the subsides are a great idea. I’d be rolling in it for empty pages produced.
You have a wee bit of a distraction at the moment. I am confidant that the tide will turn for you and then you won’t be able to stop the words. :o)
Love reading your posts, Jill! Happy New Year to you and the boys.
Thanks, Jules! Happy New Year back at ya! May we have many more wild adventures together in the new year! :o)
You have a good point. If more writers stopped producing, it would result in bigger paydays for those who do. There must be a way to run with this. i want me a big advance!
Yeah, baby, let the law of supply and demand kick in. And yes, whatever you do, don’t play the futures market. Get that big advance NOW!!.
