Sigh.

I don’t write for a living.  I have a “career” that I am pleased to be a part of.  I write because I enjoy it, and want to tell a story.  I’m an older fan, so I recognize that my stories don’t always appeal to the masses.  I’m okay with that.  I don’t dwell too much on reviews or reader counts.  But sometimes…

I’m not a big presence in fandom, and I generallly prefer that.  I’m happy when my drabbles and ficlets get 30 notes (due primarily to reblogs).  But when a fic I write has emotional depth and took many tumultuous hours to produce gets only 10 notes…

Sigh.

I’m just going to get on with my day and later, when I sit down to write for my hour-a-day, I’ll be fine.  Because when I’m writing, I don’t think about who will read it or how many will read it—that’s where I’m content to just be and just write.
