Hello everyone! I'm sure about %0.0 of you care, but I'm happy to the point it's unhealthy!

As few, or none, of you know, I have aspirations to be a writer. Well, as fate would have it, I NOW OFFICIALLY AM!!! That's right, I'm going to be published!

No, I'm not bringing a little chief fan into the world. I'm not a daddy, as many lucky fella's in here are. But I've given birth none the less. I've written a poem, and it's getting published! Most may not care, but my words inside of a hard bound novel are almost too much extasy for me to convey.
Fan of poetry or not, a fellow chief fan is now officially a writer, and damned it, I'm too excited to keep it in!

This brings me more joy than.....well, almost as much as would a chief super bowl. I'm just sooooo happy I'm to stupid for words. I'm telling anyone who'll listen, and damned it, you poor slobs almost feel like extended e-family.

I'd buy you all a beer if I could!!!!

Roses are Red,
Violets are Blue,
Brad is a Poet,
Now how 'bout that Brew!

Raising my eBeer to eToast Brad for his success!

Congrats, Brad. Im sure you'll let us know when and where we can find your book.

Thanx guys! Book will be out winter of 2001 (whenever that is.) It's called "Nature's Echoes."

Cheesy, 'eh!?!

Oh well, published is still published. And I can't say I'm not happy as hell. Most in here probably don't dig both poetry and football, and I wouldn't be surprised, but it's an undescribable feeling to have your own words printed in a hard cover book fer' all ta' see.

'Can't wait to see what it feels like...

I'll read it as long as you don't claim to have invented poetry.

Rausch 09-22-2000 06:34 AM

I didn't invent it....Just tried to contribute to it!

I'm just starting to sober still can't believe it!!!

That is great Brad. Congratulations.


Would rather be golfing

Congradulations Brad. Its always refreshing to see someone reach a goal through hard work and persistence. Poetry is great. For your next book you should write a compilation which conveys the frustration it is to be a Chiefs fan 'lo these years.

Hmmm, what the hell rhymes with Grbac?

Sincere congrats Brad.

may the ink in your quill never run dry...

Brad - Congrat's on being published, it is good to see you reach your goals.

shakesthecat 09-22-2000 07:19 AM

You're a poet and we didn't even know it.
Good job Brad!

bishop_74 09-22-2000 07:27 AM

Wow, cool man. It's neat to see your name up in lights!!! I hope this is just the beginning of many good things for ya Brad. Good luck in your writing...<P>

Congrats Brad!!! I'm sure that your one heck of a great writer to get published. The publishing company must put out a lot of money for this so it is a big risk for them. For them to have chosen to publish your work is a HUGE accomplishment. Again, Congrats!!

The closest that I ever came to your accomplishment was to have one of my Writing Professors in College share one of my poems with his classes. That felt great, but I can't imagine how you feel.

If you can, maybe you could share one of your unpublished works with us?

Congrats Brad. I've been published several times in an Oracle mag so I know what you mean about the 'rush' of seeing your name in print.

Enjoy the ride and be sure to have 'em punch your ticket for the next go-around.

Phobia 09-22-2000 08:31 AM

I wonder if Poe was this excited the first time he was published?

Congrats, Brad! That's quite an accomplishment! I'm sure your family is quite proud!
