None of my business

There are some sophosticated Hit Counters available that could tell when, and from where, my blog is read. Having that sort of information could be a distraction. I intend to write (blog entries, movie scripts, magazine articles) whether two or two million people are reading. Admittedly, I check my Hit Counter to be sure that someone is reading. People find their way to 40 Days in Paris from a variety of links and directories. Eventually it will slow, then stop. That's none of my business.

It's been a great exercise. It can be difficult to effectively relay a story in four to six paragraphs. I've learned to edit my work tightly, to slash and cut. I also learned to write quickly and from odd locations (which may explain some of the punctuation and style errors.) Web writing is supposed to be lean and lively. I think I am achieving that more often now.

For almost a year I have been actively putting more of my work into the world. This year I will have more work published. I am ready to be PAID to write, even as I finish my journalism degree and continue to learn the endless details of grammar, style and punctuation. I don't usually know what happens after my work is published, or how it is received. My job is to write. That's what I do.
