I can’t write anymore…
…not about wrestling anyway.
Although when I think about it, I never could to begin with. I just finished my third article for Fighting Spirit Magazine and I hate it. I found that whenever I wrote an article outside of Scotsmanality, I hated it. Like when I wrote for 411. Looking back at a lot of my old WU posts, I’m amazed I was actually popular considering how bad some of them were. However I think a lot of the time I am just over-critical in regard to my articles. Not in the case of my FSM articles though – oh how I hate them, hate them, hate them.
The problem is that I don’t watch wrestling anymore. I don’t watch it, I don’t read about it, and I sadly have absolutely no interest in it, something that really sucks considering the amount of enjoyment it has brought me over the years. Sadly we move on in life, and that is what I’ve done. However the FSM editor was an old Scotsmanality fan and really wanted me to write, and I figured oh what the hell. I don’t even get paid – I mean technically I do, but I get him to send all paychecks to a charity that I regularly support. I was more hoping that this would ignite my interest in wrestling again, but it hasn’t.
My latest article was a rant on Mick Foley. A 1400 word rant, which can be summarized in one sentence: Mick Foley is a cunt. Yet I manage to somehow put that into 1400 words of crap. I mean when I think about it – I got great feedback for a lot of articles I did, but I never got any when it came to wrestling. Discussion, recaps, mocking etc – I can’t remember ever getting good feedback for it. Yet here I am writing for a fucking magazine about a program I don’t even watch.
When I get a chance I’ll upload all 3 articles so you can see just how bad they are. I’ve sent them to people for proofreading each time and I get good feedback, but I think a lot of people are just scared to tell me what they really think. Really I’m a cunt when it comes to the articles anyway – I’ve missed deadline every time. For example, the deadline for this was last Saturday. I just sent it in today, Thursday.
So yeah – it was a fun experiment, but I think I’ll go back to just hating Mick Foley silently, rather than wasting magazine space with my insane rants.
