Trying Again

2017.03.20 (Mon.)

I just made my works visible or public (whatever the term is) again.  Months ago (maybe in the summer?), I had changed the status of my works so they were no longer visible.  Why?  Because I was discouraged at the paucity of comments I had received on my writings.  I guessed that somehow my writings were missing the mark, but that everyone was too kind to tell me what I was doing wrong.  I sensed that I was over-doing the representation of speakers' dialects, and that I should scale that back, but I wasn't sure how to cut back some, but not all, of this.  My plan as of now is to go back through one chapter at a time, trying to make improvements (including reducing dialectal spellings).  That's all I know to do; if that doesn't do it, then perhaps my talents lie in other venues...hmm...

I've been looking for a site like this for a while -- the writings I have seen here so far are good, yet DO have some boundaries. At some other sites, almost anything goes, and that creeped me out.
