LESSONS LEARNED - Chris Gumprich

The Internet is a treasure trove of information for the budding self-publisher. It seems that everywhere you go, you can find ten "how-to" articles explaining how to succeed in self-publishing in Five Easy Steps.

LESSONS LEARNED is not one of those columns.

Now for Sale: You've a Nail

Printed: $9.50
Download: $3.75

This is the first full chapbook of poetry of mine for sale

It is also available for free here, but if you buy it I'll get a whole three bucks, and quite honestly I could use three bucks. That's a bag of catfood for Gargy - which keeps her from eating my eyeballs while I'm sleeping.

worn out

I'm a poet, but there's no use for poetry in american culture so I've been trying to find a niche outside of that for myself - maybe I need to get out of kansas... whatever it is, I'm not going to be able to contribute until this bullshit in my head is taken care of... I have only my gift with words, and a puffed up elitist liberal attitude trying to get by in a conservative illiterate state, and trying to pretend not to be a poet, ie to be a mage or a fictional writer or a musician - that's all shadowplay from being a poet. I can't seem to make money in this town as a poet, or anywhere in the states for that matter - and I thought I'd have better luck doing it online - well I got distracted trying to be what I appeared to be and now - digging through my past and my writing in putting together this book - that's ripping my constructed sense of identity into little pieces.

note to self- sign up on this

animal lost & found board - i intend to register later

i was wrong


this is wrong

I'm an ISFP

and I was wrong about some other things as well.
my friend lefty wrote this to me in an email, and I appreciate her candor. This is what she said:
you are, by all accounts, an isfp composer. s as in sensory, rather than intuitive. i dont trust tests on-line. if you want to double check get a copy of please understand me II by david keirsey from the library and take the test there, but disregard the couple suggestions.


i believe that you are absolutely a sensor, though, you have entered the intuitive phase of your life. you are in your extroverted intuitive stage of life. which means being open to patterns, wholistic things, social groups. i think you were stagnating in lawerence and that is why you did not flourish anymore. you need a mind mate and you were too overcome by fellow hedonists.

extroverted intuition -

Extraverted intuition attempts to envisage all the possibilities that are inherent in an objective situation. Ordinary events are seen as providing a cipher or set of clues from which underlying processes and hidden potentialities can be determined. Yet once these possibilities are apprehended, objects and events lose their meaning and import. There is therefore a constant need for new situations and experiences to provide a fresh stimulus for the intuitive process

i think you should realize that rejection is a part of life and it has nothing to do with you, but rather, the way the institutions you despise, work... i think you should be grateful to find out *anything* about your biological family...god for years you knew nothing at all. and a person shouldn't have to pine to know who they are, but you *got what you wanted.*

dont let yourself stagnate. recreate yourself. connect the world with your work.

remember that life carries us in directions and have faith. have faith and look for signs and try not to get too stoned or drunk all the time and remember you have potential and talent and this is your life. this is *your* life. breathe, meditate, remove things that hurt you from your life. rest and start over again.

thanks. I was obliterating myself in hatred for a while this weekend, and I've come through to the other side. I'm going to cross-post this to unrelated thoughts as well.
