After much frustration and thought, I just posted this overlong rant at Walt at Random.
Since it's possible that one of my two readers here isn't also a W.a.r. reader, I thought I'd note it here because, well, I'm dead serious about this.
Right at the moment, despite the sun actually emerging for a while today, and maybe because I have a nagging headache, I'm discouraged. Maybe even fed up. And wondering whether it's worth it if what I do is so easily misinterpreted (or is it being misinterpreted?).
So: Here's another place you can tell me that Jenny Levine is right, that C&I is just self-promotion, and all that. It's always hard to judge your own work, so I'm inclined to believe what thoughtful people tell me about mine. Even if what you tell me is "Hang it up."
