It’s sad how much I hate social media. It irritates me how much we need it, how the number of followers or likes somehow translates to readers and book sales and confidence as a writer. On the one hand, my introverted self is much more extroverted online. I’m willing to talk to anyone about anything.
And the writers! Writers, writers, everywhere. Talking about writing. Some are positive and charged. Others are down and struggling. While there always seems to be someone there to lift you up, there also seems to be a few quite happy to knock you down.
What is it with that? Has it always been this way? I think it has. Perhaps it was easier to ignore before millions of people followed you around on a 3×6 electronic leash.
How do you cope with the constant bombardment? Are you an unplugger? A passer-on of kitten pictures and baby goats? Or are sarcastic memes your thing? Share your favorite in the comment section!
