1) Writing or not writing a blog on a daily basis seems not to matter a whit, as regards readership numbers. This does not mean Weebly's metrics lie. Simply the search engine nature of it all. Hey 12-15k views is pretty good, for no gossip, few pictures, and little of interest beyond actual words. I'll take it.
2) Getting paid matters. Not making money off the creative writing... over centralized publishing world and diminishing attention spans mean that I simply do not write creatively much. There is enough written work out there to last scholars several millennia on remote outposts in the cosmos. I do not need to add more, from compulsion or duty.
3) Music is more gratifying. Not because I am paid, but because I do not have to focus on it to do a good job. It flows like water, I am the instrument of its conveyance. I listen, I think, I play by ear. I arrange a million sounds and somehow it comes out ok.
4) I am thinking to write Cowachunga and not put it out at all. In this age of everything shared and nothing paid, why not hold back? If any money accrues from the project in the long term I will make damn sure it does not go to the feedmeisters and the pub-congloms.
5) I have not forgotten the faithful. I have committed to the Arisugawa cloud novel project (no shirking there, though it may take 10 more years).
