…do not go gentle into that good Internet…

aunty acid

…if there’s one thing yeez get to know the older yeez get… is that yeez know comparatively little… no one mind or brain holds all the intelligence and learning that civilisation has generated since time began… and the earlier this ol’ Jurassic understood that, the easier it became to get comfortable about not being the fount of all knowledge… but it doesn’t mean I stop trying to learn… as a relative newcomer to this wunnerful scribbling gig seven years or so ago, the learning curve has been necessarily steep… makes me dizzy sum’times, truth be told… NUTHIN stays the same for long, and the WURLD of publishing has seen changes over the past ten or twenty years that would normally have taken a century or more… but I note many of our fellow Lads and Lassies in Blog Land reluctant to get immersed in the realities of modern day Authorship… each to his/her own, of course, but the evidence to my eyes is persuasive… the need to be present on the SOSYAL NETWURKS is even more demanding to be ‘heard’ above the literary market ‘noise’


…of course, just banging on about anything on the Web is kinda pointless… my approach is simple… I communicate as much as possible with people with like-minded writing interests… people with a sense of humour are also priceless… and I derive endless pleasure from supporting other quill-scrapers online… we all need our affirmations… our feathers stroked… the honest feedback from folks whose opinion yeez value… it’s all part and parcel of being ’aboard’… and there are still no free lunches…the cost of all of this is yer expended time, energy and focus… I regard it as the finest investment I’ve ever made… my acquired new creed is— ‘I write, I read, and I blog, therefore I am’… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!
