This is totally off-topic. It’s not about writing, or sex, or books, or publishing in any way.
This time, it’s personal…
Yesterday I left an online community I’ve been part of for over 4 years. It was a really hard decision to make. Basically, I felt the people there had changed. The parameters had changed. What was once a really fun place to be had become a den of vipers, a place where people were just waiting to snipe others for any reason, where free discussion and repsect for other people’ opinions were not to be found.
I’m still wierded out by this.
But I thought about it. And I realized that right now, I’m part of another online community. Whether we’re all Snarklings or Minions or Cowlettes or whatever…we’re all here.
I like writing messages to you guys. I like reading yours. I like not feeling like I better keep my mouth shut because who knows who’ll pile all over me if I say something.
So that’s basically it. You guys have made me feel better, without doing anything but being you.
I’ll do a real post later. I just wanted to say that.
