I don't want people here attributing it to me.

There's nothing 'hard to say' about this question...unless you've submitted it but it hasn't been approved yet .

Oh no then the answer would still be no .

I am working on a narrative poem at the moment. But I'll never want it published in a magazine, newspaper or journal? I'll never write an essay or article.

I'll shoot myself if I have to become one of those people who write those academic journals.

Re: Have you ever published a poem/essay/article in public magazines/newspapers/journ

Does my high school's magazine count?

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

I think yes! Have you received some payment from your H school?

I am thinking about writing a novel. I shoot for Nobel prize around 2040.
My biggest inspiration is Camus.

Re: Have you ever published a poem/essay/article in public magazines/newspapers/journ

Yes, I have had some reviews published in a local newspaper. I've also written things like obituaries (it was such a long time ago I just had to check the spelling of the word!) for a(nother) local newspaper.

(This was all a long time ago: it was in the 1990s! I had something of a part-time job at one of these places so I can't put it down to my amazing language prowess or anything *sniff* )

(And I am so embarrassed by one of these reviews: it was scathing, so horrible! I am a much nicer person now: no longer "Angry Young Female"!) (More "Easily Irritated Older Female" - aaargh...)
