Self-praise is no recommendation

Just under a month ago, I posted a story in Nephelokokkygia.. It sunk without trace. I think it's probably the best thing I've ever written. If my writing is really that shit, I wish someone would have the balls to tell me, so I can stop wasting my time. But then my whole bloody life is a waste of time, so I guess my pathetic writing fits in pretty well.

Love & best wishes to all

  1. Sammy,
    I want to read it. I am just so damned busy now, and I have your story, a novel by an author friend to beta read, and god, REAL LIFE! I have given up on RentBoys (or the new version) because of time. I WILL get there. I've enjoyed every story of yours I've read. And if the authors I know are any indication, it takes time, and LOTS of exposure.

    Love you, man. Don't be discouraged.

    Peace <3

    1. Hello Jay
      I was just feeling sorry for myself (mainly for reasons that had nothing to do with my writing) the other night, and this post was how my dissatisfaction expressed itself. I know I've got no right to expect anyone to read what I write, still less to enjoy it, and if I can't accept that premise, I shouldn't be here in the first place. Thank you for your stalwart encouragement over the piece, I genuinely appreciate it.

      Love & best wishes
      Sammy B
