Some of you folks have seen here at TMF that sometimes I post a good story about my kids, The Ducklings. I take a pretty-much factual story and improve upon it and make it funny for everyone. Yeah, I do it to get attention, but it's fun for me.But I've had some highly-rated posts and a Post Of The Day with my "Christmas At The Duck House" (12/27/02). My highest rec'd posts are mostly my Duckling stories.I've not limited doing this at just TMF, I've done this with sending stories back home to my relatives via email. Quite often, both here at TMF and from friends and relatives, I've been asked or suggested that I "do this for a living".How?I haven't the foggiest idea of how to go about this. I'd like to, but I don't think I'd get rich at it or anything. I could easily concentrate on this kind of writing and do it well. I would love it if I could become another Dave Barry or another famous humor writer. (I don't know that many, most of what I know is from Dave Barry.) However, how many Dave Barry's can this world support?I thought I'd bounce this off the wall at you folks and see if you have any ideas on where I could go with this. Other things I've done in which I've received the comment "you should do this professionally" have been Dave Letterman-style Top Ten Lists, fake horoscopes, fake job descriptions, and other short articles.Meanwhile, I know lots of folks here at TMF could blow me into the weeds with their writing and composition ability, this made it hard for me to be brave enough to make this post and ask about it.So I don't know, I love writing funny stuff once I get my mind to it. Can I make something out of it?Duck!...Dave Barry wannabe...
