There is no science in determining what to write and how to write it. There are some topics I’ve noticed people are drawn to more but I can’t write about them exclusively. It is also true that I don’t want to write about the same topics over and again. Even if they draw viewers. It wouldn’t be authentic or real. I’d simply be pandering to the largest numbers.
On the other hand, I don’t want to waste viewers’ time by posting things that don’t appeal to them. I just wish I knew what the magic formula is.
I have to admit, some of my greatest views have been poems written 20 or 40 years ago. (Yes, I am an old relic.) It is disheartening as I’d like to think I have grown as a writer in the years since.
But I can see my style has definitely changed over the years. I don’t waste time on melodrama now. Flowery prose doesn’t excite me. I’m more to the point. I cut to the chase with what I have to say.
Some of the pieces I’m proudest of don’t attract any views, like “The Ravages of a Man”, a short story I’ve written over a number of years. Meanwhile, love poems seem to find an audience. Trouble is, I’m not in love and haven’t been in many years. And my rants, those I’d be better off not writing, no one wants to hear about them.
I would welcome feedback about what you like and what interests you. Not just in my writing but on the world’s stage. I need new ideas to percolate on. I want to contribute meaningful work. I know my book has meaning but I don’t print it here. That you might enjoy.
So please, take a moment to let me know your thoughts. I need to stretch my wings a bit and the interchange between you and I would be welcome.
