A Mini-Tirade

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 Averted 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.

About Mike Slickster

As an early retiree with an honorary doctorate degree from the proverbial "School of Hard Knocks," this upcoming author with a lot of free time on his hands utilizes his expansive repertoire for humorous yet tragic, wildly creative writing that contains years of imaginative fantasy, pure nonsense, classic slapstick, extreme happiness and searing heartbreak; gathered by a wealth of personal experiences throughout his thrilling—sometimes mundane or unusually horrid—free-spirited, rock-'n'-roller-coaster ride around our beloved Planet Earth. Mike Slickster's illustrious quest continues, living now in Act Three of his present incarnation, quite a bit on the cutting edge of profundity and philosophical merriment as seen through his colorful characters, most notably evident in the amusing Thirty Days Across the Big Pond series, all of which can be found at Lulu.com.

    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.

    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.
