Ok...some of us would love to quit work and do nothing but write all day but can't (electric, gas, food, mortgage get in the way).

Would anyone subscribe to viewing a webcam of a writer working? Maybe talking to herself? Maybe singing off key? Maybe talking to the TV or the Computer? If there was 2 way conversation, would someone pay to talk to her? The fee would be about $20 a month. You figure if you have 1000 people a month subscribing, you could live pretty well.

Do not steal my idea!

I'd take Joe Shmoe from down the street... just to be different. I think it'd be pretty cool though, kind of an inside look into a writer's life.

There's nothing like a good fight with a horse to put your problems into perspective

Are you offering me a job???
lol.
Actually, it might be interesting for those that afren't writers. The rest of us already know the agony of singing off key, talking to the computer(and losing the argument), and all of the rest.

We are all equal but we’re individually different
and able to reach the impossible if we try.
