Comment on The Superficial Likes by etod62.
I read and I will like, and you are right. As an emerging writer who hears the noise of platform importance in my ear, I feel the same frustration. I’m trying to tend to the craft, but get sucked in by the drone of audience. Friends see me and let me know they lived a piece, but comments are paltry. I want to be present to the in person compliment, but a niggling voice says, “please comment” because it matters to publishing houses. And yes, I am as guilty as the rest when I post, checking frequently for view, likes and comments. All well said. Thank you!
