It appears that what I'm doing today is rewriting this post over and over. Every single time I finish and then delete. Why you ask? Because what I've written so far has turned into nothing but a litany of complaints and who the heck want to hear that?
I started off earlier about expectations and doing things becasue of yours and others expectations. Such as this blog that we are faithfully doing each month without any feedback other than from us.
Then I wrote about some of the crazy and nasty emails that writers receive because the readers don't like what the writer has written. I've been interviewing a lot of writers lately and was a bit surprised to hear what kind of things readers have written to writers about.
Then I wrote about how writers have to hold their tongue in the public arena. Naturally this caused me a bit of annoyance. I find that the treat others as you would like to be treated is sometimes going a bit far.
Then I decided to blog about the state of the economy and how it's trickling down to the publishing industry. I deleted that one also.
Now I find half the day is gone and the only thing I can think of to blog about are things that annoy me. So for the sake of all of us I will do this:
I hope all of you enjoy a very good week.
