Better words needed

Yesterday, I wrote a post "Good With Money vs. Good With Resources," but I had a problem: The word resource is almost, but not quite correct to cover the space of idea I was talking about.

I meant something along the line of "factors that you can gain influence over, that once gained have some persistent quality, that you don't have complete control over, but rather there's some way the factor can provide feedback to you, that used appropriately can be useful" - and that comes pretty close to being a "resource," does it not?

Wikipedia has "resource" as thus - "A resource is any physical or virtual entity of limited availability that needs to be consumed to obtain a benefit from it. In most cases, commercial or even non-commercial factors require resource allocation through resource management. There are two types of resources; renewable and non-renewable."

Close! But not quite, as I was experiencing yesterday:

I also think the word “resource” isn’t the best particular word, since there’s a lot of things that are resource-like that aren’t really resources… obviously our relationships aren’t resources, but can also be invested in similar to a resource. You can go out of your way to do nice things for people who have done right by you, you can be thoughtful, you can go out of your way to travel to a place if someone you really admire is there.

About this blog

On Rafael Guerra

So I wrote an apocalyptic science fiction novel last year and self-published it. I had never written anything before but always wanted to do it. Of course, I did not expect it to sell I just wanted to get my stories out and get better as I kept writing. I did get a few people to read it, and for the most part, they liked it but some pointed out some grammatical and style errors which I knew the book would have as I edited the book and I have no writing or editing experience.

So after a year I have hardly promoted the book so not too many have read it. I had been thinking of starting a blog to post my self-published novel and other novels I am working on but always never made time. I finally decided to do it so this is where I stand.

I will be posting pages from my book in the blog and writing other short stories and when I’m done with the second part of my novel. I will post those chapters as well.

Furthermore, I love to cook and I will post some of my favorite recipes, but for the most part, the blog will be about my writing.

Here is a review that I got. The book is called Chloros
