How right you are. I hate to acknowledge you’re right. Gatos! I hate it. I should be there, with the five-score-and-forty brigade enriching the lives of whoever pines to know what I had for breakfast or if tonight will be the night. I can’t, so I’m damned to remain an obscure writer.
Amen. I hate facebook. I'm on it anyway. If the house is empty (lonely), I'm not allowed on facebook, 'cause it's so depressing. Everyone is so happy and successful that it feels like a huge snub to me, and it brings me down fast.
Frankly, most platforming, except my blog, just keeps me from writing. Time is precious and priceless. Getting my persona out there is daunting to me, and I need to focus on the craft right now.
When the time comes, I have a good mind to make up a pen name and a NEW persona. Then I'd also be writing a new character and getting better at the craft.
