Thomas Slatin, On Writing
You grew up experiencing struggle in life which led you to strive harder. Being judged by people because of your capabilities. But meeting those people inspires you in writing.
Much like you, I attribute my success to shear determination and defiance. Nothing comes easy.
Looks like many people saw your talent while you were very young. You are very lucky.
I am happy to learn that your heroes while growing up were succesful people. We have that in common.
Many writers often overlook their titles. It’s good that you take so much time on them to come up with the perfect titles.
I like the process that you use to pick your title. I might start using it myself.
Do upload more of this type of media. It’s new and refreshing.
As an aspiring writer I have learnt a lot from this. I still have a long way to go but I believe I will get there.l
Thank you for sharing this. It sheds a light of light into who you are.
Your inspirations came from your experiences. That’s the most beautiful thing.
I can now see why Thomas is such a good writer. His process is impeccable.
He is so eloquent. I love his reading.
We can all write. We have what it takes to write but only a few get to have the professionalism.
You are a fantastic writer and your way of writing is amazing. Well done for a job well done. I’m sure other readers enjoy here just like I do.
I think your story has inspired many people. It’s nice to get to know you here… wish you the best!
Wise words Tom, it’s interesting to see where your ideas come from when writting and why do you writte the way you do.
Put all this down really shows how frustrated and hurt you were, and I hope you have moved on. Most stories out there are just like this but the difference is if one pull through or not. It’s well and I hope we all laugh last.
There is always something good after all the tragedies in our life. All our struggles will bear fruit in due time.
Its true that when there is no pain there won’t be gain. The story is so inspiring.
I thought that you were the one reading your own material, Tom. It does feel quite different when someone else narrates your life, even when you wrote most of the account.
I’m not too sure if that’s the most impartial way to describe yourself and what makes you tick, but I felt your sincerity (and some of your frustrations, too) in the words spoken by Kal Beck.
In some ways, your story mirrors a bit of myself, except that I’ve never worked at a fire department before. But I’m a bit introverted, as you are, and my parents told me that in my younger days, I would often keep to myself and read.
I also checked out both your About page and the “Unexpected Denouement” page. You’re indeed a most intriguing person, Tom.
I sincerely wish you the best of luck in your current and future endeavours, and that you’ll continue to evolve further as a person. As I’m sure that most of us are aware, the time we stop believing that we’re capable of becoming better is USUALLY the time we start to die.
Good luck, and godspeed, Tom!
Wow, every successful person has a story to tell. Nothing good comes easily and I’m happy you stood your ground and focused on what you wanted. Your success made us know you.

A very inspirational saying. One should not let others let you down in life.
A great and talented writer you are. I don’t need to be told. I can attest to the fact here already.
Success has never come easy I’m glad you were strong towards your dreams and you were able to achieve it. You’re a great writer and photographer.
This is very inspiring. You should not let anyone get into your dream or bring you down.
You are leveling up my friend. Seriously it may not be a huge deal nut the mere fact that someone appreciates your work is a huge deal. Congratulations and more power.
