I started writing on WordPress as a kind of experiment. As a new user, with no contacts I wanted to see what would happen if I posted something. Would anyone see it? Would anyone like it? Would I ever know; is there feedback coming my way?
Feedback? Yes. Most of it, however, is Spam. Infomercials and con artists. There were a few actual artists in the bunch but it was time-consuming to weed through in order to separate the wheat from the chaff.
This is frustrating because I threw some pretty good reading at these “people”, though it is not readily apparent that any actual human ever read any of my work. None of it was referenced in any criticism. It is confounding, really. This has been almost as satisfying as my two-year search for a New York literary agent. I am working on my fifth novel and still no success.
It now appears the Left may have invented the Russian story from whole cloth and engineered the meetings and contacts to justify an elaborate surveillance offensive against the Trump campaign when HRC appeared to be losing.
Why did every talking head on TV news for the last three days assert that it was illegal for the president to wiretap an American citizen? Judge Andrew Napolitano appeared on FOX and Friends Tuesday to debunk the rest of the world. He stated that, since President Jimmy Carter, it was legal for the president to wiretap anyone, including American citizens, if he files with his Attorney General.
The reading of these posts seems slow, so much so that I feel a fire may be needed to spark some of these authors into producing something, anything that will entertain and captivate this audience. So, in an effort to prime the pump I will magnanimously throw out a subject for their perusal, just to get the juices flowing, so to speak, or write as the case may be.
Can we subsist on a Windows 8 PC or must we revert back to Windows 7, as have I, or should we just bite the bullet and spend all extraneous capital on an Apple? I am using a new HP Notebook PC with Windows 7 that I had to search long and hard to purchase amidst a sea of Windows 8. What are the thoughts out there and related experiences?
