It's been hard to not want to lash out over the complete ambivalence to my labor of love - the lack of any attention or support or feedback at ALL is simply overwhelming to me. I just don't know what I've done wrong. I thought that SURELY the folks who were proclaimed fans of my writing would give it a second glance, or give me some feedback or indication that they'd really looked at the project at ALL, and didn't just click the "like" button, and go on their way. I don't do that, really. I read the article or watch the video or look at the pictures. Usually. Either I"m in the vast minority or for some reason everyone REALLY thinks this project - this creative endeavor which I've stated over and over again is as thrilling to me as anything I've ever written - just completely sucks eggs and beans and donkey dicks and the what-not. Is certainly not worthy of any actual attention.
I wish those who called me their friend would tell me WHY they think it sucks so bad, or why the hundreds of hours I've spent thus far have not warranted the fifteen minutes it would take to actually check it out and give me a little feedback.
I don't give a shit. I'll keep on with the project because I DO believe in it. Those that believe will continue on believing, and we'll continue on working (hopefully). Those that don't believe never really believed to begin with. I don't want to be this person, this pathetic whiner we always scroll past, but jeebus! You've already scrolled past, haven't you? FUCK! (NOTE: for this blog post, chances are you were never here to begin with. Insert smiley face).
