Uphill Struggles

Right. Why is it never easy for those of us who were not born with parents who are exeptionally liberal and with fountains of cash falling out of every pocket and bag and tops of shoes and cuffs of jackets?
I was just looking at differnt types of funding, and from my own experince with funding applications, its never easy. Then I think of the people I know who can just go "Mum, Dad?" and get the money IT REALLY WINDS ME UP!!!
Its so offputting. Do they put these dredful things about how hard its gonna be about just to scare you and deter people from applying? I recon they must do.
Terrible .
So I'm basically screwed, screwed and crossing my fingers when people who are not even a zillinth as talented or comitted fancy being a "writer" for a bit and get a big fat cheque from mater and pater. MAKES ME ANGRY

That's cool, I understand what you are getting at. You might end up injuring yourself if you are fighting invisible enemies though.

"Thus spake Mekon"?
Now thats a book that sounds like it would do my head in!

And I'm less Marxist now and will name at least one name, or fasscist vowels to be precise!
