June 18, 2020 Flexibility

This is a powerful piece of software. Slowly, I am determining it nonetheless may not do all I need it to. Much more time is required to learn the software and assemble the site than I want to invest. That means less time actually writing and editing. Dedicating more time to writing and reviewing past noodles, the site will take longer to come to the point it supports my efforts and goals.

Believing I have a lot of material worth recovering and knowing I add five or six new starts daily, time is a real concern. Even if nothing is ever ‘published’ it would be nice to have the bulk of it available in usable form before time runs out.

Then there’s the issue of ‘monetization.’ For years, I’ve maintained many ‘writers’ put their energies into something, then give it away. This whoring as a writer bothers me. I’d feel better about going about it that way, if it were common practice for medicos to work for free, for mechanics to mend my ailing car gratis, and for the grocery to make occasional weekly restocking trips gifts. Don’t see that. Save friends and family, I’m inclined to keep better, bigger pieces, those that involved considerable sweat, from general access. Jury’s out.

I’ll invest more time (only less than before) in watching how-to vids, reading the tips, pointers , and suggestion, and adding content when time presents. Right now and especially for the next several days, my focus will be on actually writing. Gee.

Retired career IT software engineer, or as we were called in the old days, programmer, it's time to empty my file cabinet of all the "creative" writing accumulated over the years - toss most of it, salvage and publish what is worthwhile.
