(This entry mentioned me but, honestly, does not say I am the problem – I am merely an example, I think): Not all writers are savvy enough to realize that bashing ANYONE can come back to bite them in the ass, especially if theyâ€™re not NYT bestselling writers.
After taking a second look, apparently I need to clarify somethingâ€¦.Actually Helen, that entry that *I* wrote a month ago on someone elses board *smile* mentioned you because you were having a similiar (and as usual very interesting) discussion at the very same time NOT because you were or are ever a part of the problem.
What I said was Helen Kay has an interesting discussion on writers posting honestly about other writerâ€™s work. I posted the link if youâ€™re interested. As an active blogger I DO think about every word I put out on the net and itâ€™s potential to come back to haunt me, but at the same time I try to not let it stifle me (obviously).
What I canâ€™t figure out is how a month old conversation has anything to do with Helenâ€™s post yesterday about the Secrets anthology? Which Iâ€™ve never even read.
Nevermindâ€¦I donâ€™t wanna know.
Frankly the potential to offend is a discussion Iâ€™m sick and tired of. I know what I know (and I know a lot :woot: ) and while I do think long and hard about what I blog about, Iâ€™m not going to angst over my potential to piss someone off because Iâ€m ALWAYS going to piss someone off. Somewhere. Sometime. Somehow. Such is life.
If I worry about how every little thing I say and do might piss other people off Iâ€™d end up in a corner sucking my damned thumb and never get anything done.
*P. S. Iâ€™d post the link to the entire discussion so yaâ€™ll could read it In Context but I have a manuscript to work on and a website redesign to plan.
