I'll never regret becoming a writer
January 19, 2007 2:55pm CST
Thanks to my dad for encouraging me to keep a diary, I have written articles and stories and become a successful writer. My credits include a published book, Teaching Ideas for the Come-Alive Classroom, a number of Instructor articles, and a website, www.profitable-pen.com that focuses on mining ideas for stories, books and aticles from journals. In addition, I serve as a mentor of technical writing for an online college. Writing has enabled me to earn a respectable income and enjoy my work. However, I don't regret my past experiences, such as those in teaching.

Same here. My past is what made me who I am, and now I write. I have published two books myself. I have found that I can communicate better with written words and not so well with verbal communication. I'm still trying to get to the respectable income part. But I don't care, I love what I do, and for me that's more important than a big paycheck.

Congratulations for becoming a successful writer. As for me, I write primarily to serve God and help people understand the Word of God. I am a Christian, a child of God, baptized into Christ on October 1, 1989 and I belong to the Church of Christ founded and headed by Christ as shown in Acts Chapter 2. I am given the gift of knowledge and understanding Bible Greek and I translate the Word of God from Greek to English PLAINLY - Greek word into its English equivalent with additional words for grammar purposes written in italics so that readers may delete them when they so desire. I have already published GENESIS, EXODUS, LEVITICUS (Greek-English), THE WILL New Testament (Greek to English), ELEMENTS of SALVATION, The Right Way, GOD, ORIGIN, TRANSFER into PERFECTION, GREEK-ENGLISH (Grammar & Vocabulary), WORDS in THE WILL New Testament, and others shown at http://www.lulu.com/arseniajoaquin I have seen the versions being circulated worldwide and they are generally admitted to be 80% NOT translations. My translations are 99.99% translations and I see the truth, beauty, and sweetness of the Word of God. I hope these books could also help people understand the Word of God and be saved. Some copies are sold and I hope that more will be sold when the books are placed on the Global Distribution Service. I expect a lot of money to come from the books so I donated THE WILL New Testament (Greek to English) to the Alpha Omega Seniars Intl Foundation, Inc. for senior citizens, widows, orphans, disabled, poor intellectuals, etc. I'm also donating at least 20% of the proceeds from other books that I publish. As soon as I finish GENESIS TO DEUTERONOMY (Greek-English), I intend to donate it to the Church.
