The humble beginnings of thunderous success is to wax my cars for endless hours.

If you do that right, you may be ready to post funny bits in a chess forum.

In the depths of the Great Depression, grandmasters had to travel for thousands of miles in order to find prize funds lucrative enough to be worth their while.  This is the story of one such family--the Joads--who traveled from Oklahoma all the way to California (in search of Paul Masson).

I remember when this guy went in search of Paul Masson ...  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFevH5vP32s

Okay OP (wherever you are), here's a good subject:  write a biography about William Lombardy.  Former World Junior Champion, pal to Fischer, closely involved in the 1972 match, guy who left the priesthood to play chess and ended up homeless.
