I know there are some that think this was going on...
It was kind of fun for a while, but there's a problem with all this madcap zaniness. See, I'm trying a new "thing," don't know what else to call it. I'll write a short piece and see what readers pull out of it.
By pull out of it, I meant thoughts about the horse, the rider, and sure, the trainer too, but I ended up with a bunch of heads needing to be pulled out of...never mind.
After the short story is done, I'll write a synopsis, outlining what I hoped you guys would see.
Clearly, comments are needed to make this idea work.
Comments about my sanity, temperament, responsibility for your personal sense of oneness with the universe, writing ability or personal hygiene don't promote conversation. It just gets those of us who like to think and converse off track.
For the simple minded, I've created a few examples that might help you understand what works and what doesn't around these parts.
"Why are you so mean?" BAD
"Why were you just observing Student on her first day?" GOOD
"Why are you so rude?" BAD
"Did you think the horse might be dangerous?" GOOD
Then, it makes me a little sad, but not much, I've started moderating comments.I'll pay attention, get them up ASAP and hopefully we can get back on track.Once in a while, when I'm feeling pissy, I'll quit moderating and we'll have a free-or-all.
Until then -- bye-bye trolls and PIA's, bye-bye.
