A Mini-Tirade

Follow @MikeSlickster

I've been putting together the conclusion to my short story, "Death Chased Away by an Angel," for which I'm changing the title to "Death Outwitted by an Angel." This evening while writing, I thought: Why are so few comments posted to my entries? Most of them are anonymous anyway, making it even more tempting for generating a reader's thoughts. My journal isn't deluged with visitors, but many still drop by. I know that for a fact, by the statistics available to me as a paying member of LiveJournal.com, even though the stats are anonymous too. However, the data shows how many pages are read and the number of folks who stop by on a daily basis; and I have to say a fair amount of entries are perused.

My point for this mini-tirade is my curiosity of why wouldn't someone say something since it can be posted anonymously? Is it because my writing stinks and no one wants to hurt my feelings? Go for it. Hit me with your best shot. Mine is not a glass jaw and can take it on the chin. Tell me I'm full of dog excrement and need to go back to writing school. I got broad shoulders and can handle it; but at least make a comment, one for which you don't even have to attach your name, sign in using Twitter or Facebook; nor enter whatever blog from where you write your gems as well.

Thank you very much. Although the majority of you are silent, I still appreciate your patronage. End of mini-rant.

Thanks, Shirley Ann, you're most encouraging and a good friend. *Makes sure pooper-scooper is not awaiting me in my postal box.

Maybe people don't comment out of fear of losing some hot air from their own overly inflated balloons.

Hot Air Balloons
Ha-ha, very well put, but that's the beauty of this journal: one can make comments anonymously and not have to worry about losing their prestige.

Making commentt by smartphone
Not too hard to do when holding phone sidways and expanding the view a bit; but it is somewhat a pain in the arse, especially with Captcha.

Your writing stinks and you're full of dog doo doo too! Now, does that make you feel better?
