Folks, this awful fact is sending me a message, loud and clear. It's telling me that some people don't give a damn about my creative works. It's telling me that some people only pay attention to me when I say nasty things.
Believe it or not, I do a lot more than just say nasty things about writers, deceased or otherwise. Believe it or not, I've moved on to other things since I posted that entry back on January 13th. I've posted 60-some-odd entries since that date. Unfortunately, I'm starting to think that I'm now known less as a poet/writer/artist/illustrator and more as an a**hole who said nasty things about a certain writer shortly after her death.
I'm going to be tactlessly honest once again: I'm thinking the fact that one nasty blog entry has received more attention than recent entries featuring my creative works says less about me and my character and more about the character of many of the people in the SFF & Horror writing community. Yes, in this age of the crazy-net, nothing gets attention like a little crazy-net nastiness! This seems especially true of the SF&F and Horror writing community.
Maybe I'm just a moron/nitwit/internet weirdo for saying such things online. Maybe I should give up caring what others think of me. Would certainly be easier that way.
