3K words a day

The prolific writer
As I sit in my chair and think of my reputation, it is hard to imagine that I was only a short while ago noted for being a prolific writer. 

I used to do over 3,500 at a sitting, two or three times a week with great ease and pleasure. If I've written 3,500 words this year, it's a stretch. 





In the past, if I didn't write at least twice a week I got edgy and nervous, but now things have changed, and not writing doesn't affect me http://hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/it-was-easier.html#.VmFnsFXhDnA. You could say I've become tainted over the years. 

Things started to go wrong when I decided to try to calculate the numerous connections online my various outlets give me. It was at this point I realised how futile my writing had become, with too many connections to comprehend this blog is fortunate to get about 250 readers a day. 

Years ago, http://hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/i-used-to-love-wrting.html#.VmFpYFXhDnA, I got great pleasure creating new worlds for my readers, and then things changed and I came to a point where I didn't care any longer. I realised if something were free people would be happy to read it  http://hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/the-unwritten-worlds-of-alan-place.html#.VmFp-FXhDnA. Something else that taints my view is the number of individuals who lied to me about wanting to buy books, and never buy an e-book  http://hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/the-thing-you-love-is-killing-you.html#.VmFq41XhDnA. After four years the trend hasn't stopped, the only change is my view. I've gone from being upset at being lied to, to not giving a damn what people say. You can lie to someone for so long, and then you find they don't care what you say  http://hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/so-many-lies.html#.VmFsGFXhDnA

Despite the 580 sales for my series, I doubt there is any interest in my work, after all with all those sales, I've not had one review or comment from anyone who bought an ebook.
