I'm lost. I have been writing for almost 18 years and have yet to be published. I feel I need to go to graduate school or at least hae my career shaped by a fellow writer who might be able to give me some tough feedback.

I could use everything from editing and reviews to strategic planning for graduate school admission processes.

I feel I am a very good writer but suck at direction and focus.

I have approximately $100/month which would hopefully give me two to three hours of someone's time. If this works out it would be ongoing.

Here are two samples of my writing. The first is 1 1/2 page and is humor. The second is a little less than 5 and is "metaphysical horror.

If you think you can help me work out the kinks that would be great!
