It's effectively done. I just need to bring it into Jutoh and I can publish it on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords... all over. But.
Now, I can take the code I write for work and I actively enjoy code reviews, because this is what I do for a living, and feedback makes me better and more valuable. I don't feel any kind of ego when I code, if there's a better way, I want to know!
When it comes to my creative works, it's a different world. This is the child of my soul, a thing made from my blood, my tears, my joy, my pain, my breath and life. Ego permeates it, is part of it. And to expose this extension of my existence to critique, well, that's a challenge beyond any other.
It would be like putting your kid on "Hot Or Not" and letting strangers slag him/her for being too short, too tall, too fat, too skinny, etc. etc. etc. Not a fun time. More than likely not constructive or educational.
Because it's easier to mindlessly attack something than, you know, actually HAVE TO THINK. God forbid the Internet has to have more than a 20 second attention span or an IQ over 50! LOLZ J00 SUX0RZ! Feh.
When the human race finally dies out, and the roaches win, I will smile. Because at least the roaches have found their niche.
Sorry for the nihlistic post, but that's how I feel. I've had a lot of positive feedback on my writings and I'm seriously considering dropping as much as I can to focus on Word And Vision.
Until next time, take care, be well, have fun!
