Being Read

I’ve been writing online for quite a few years now. In that time I’ve not had very much feedback on what I’ve written. My mam asked me last week if I’ve ever experienced any nasty trolling and I told her my little corner of the internet doesn’t attract enough humans to engender hatred.

But there’s one place that I do see interaction with my writing, and that’s Just recently, people have been showing interest in my poems. The Good Boys, which I wrote last month, has had some really good feedback – which surprised me because although that poem did sum up my feelings, I didn’t think it was very tidy. I only decided to put it on because I hadn’t posted anything in a while.

Maybe that’s it: if you don’t ponce about with something, it’s a lot more true and people connect with that. It’s nice to feel like someone has read, understood and actually valued my words. Weird, but nice.

Am I right? Tell me!
