FD....

For me it comes down to a practical decision. Do I want to come on this site and interact with people who I dont really know and tell the truth, knowing that some people will be incapable of not hating me for it? And may likely promote a dislike of me to others on the basis of the emotion.

e.g. "Yes. for the one hundredth time...you are effin' fat. You just are. By any objective standard. Skip an effin' meal or quit asking me."

Or do I want to navigate all of that gently and maintain a focus on developing my own writing.I don't claim to be a learned songwriter with insights to share.

At this point in my life, it's the latter.

Furthermore...some people around here are getting pretty good and with the help of DJ and Mike even more so. They are putting out real songs.
Not songs that might be real or could be real...but are real.
When I compliment those, I mean every syllable.
