I do a fair amount of haiku TYPE stuff occasionally. And I write nonfiction. Rarely some fiction.
Some of the stuff I publish on Kindle. And I have 2 non-fiction books in the works, now.
Have not tended to be attracted to the writing forum for a couple of reasons, maybe 3.
1. I don't know how the particulars would slice to write stuff for the forum and then want to publish it in whole or part on Kindle. I understand I
retain ownership ?in large measure? to my output--even here. I just don't know how that would work, functionally etc.
2. I'm not willing to write in the forum and have the usual pack of wolves that are extremely hostile to my perspectives and style try here to shut
me down and out. I'm just not up for that. They are ruthless, assaultive and vicious enough in the rest of the forum. Am not going to have creative
writing efforts assaulted like that. I'm just not.
2.1 I'm not
talking about iron sharpening iron disagreements or suggestions. I love that. That's great
. But the deliberately assaultive,
insulting garbage I would just not put up with in this forum--regardless of how fiercely the pack of wolves descended acting like I had no right to
write and express myself.
2.2 And IF ATS is not a fitting or an acceptable place to express novel or unpopular or troublesome . . . ideas and perspectives in novel styles . . .
3. I'm not clear what's fitting, desired, acceptable. Is it only fiction? Fiction and poetry?
4. I'd be interested in a collaborative short-story effort. I'm skeptical many would like to try me on their team. The theme's I'd write about are the
usual apocalyptic stuff I've been interested in since 1962.
Anyway--thanks. interesting ideas.
