It feels like all my attempts to gain a community have been thwarted by the way the culture on this website work, all about networking and churning out semi-okay work and then congratulating one another about it.. I am all good with encouragement but when mediocre work is aggrandized by reciprocal undue veneration and the virtual environment we work within is diluted by all this white noise it is harder to develop ones skills. Maybe I am just complaining about the same things everyone who feels like they see things and do things in a different way who has a high intelligence seems to find irksome. Maybe it really is just lonely at the top like my dad says… or maybe my writing really just doesn’t appeal to a wide audience.
