Of Being Liked


Hello readers, I had fun writing this post. It kind of captures what happens just before and after I hit that publish button on Worpress. It happens to me sometimes and I had a good laugh reading thru afterwards. However, I believe the best thing is just to write what you enjoy writing as if no one else will read it. Sometimes, that makes you write better. What do you think?


Wordpress Publish Button

Click goes the mouse
I hit the Publish button

  1. Writer or no writer, everyone wants to be noticed! When you do something you know should publicise you, you feel that anxiety, that pang of despair.
    Wonderful muse Zee. At least, it will make newbies feels they aren’t alone it it! Lols…

    • Thanks Julianah. Every newbie feels that, really. However, we quickly learn that, if we write only because people like, then our growth most likely would be stunted. But if we write because we want to, and out of a natural love to pen down, then we would just enjoy ourselves.


      • Hmmm…that’s so true…the line between pleasing the audience and failing to, which makes writers their own audience…I sure get your point Zee. It’s a serious feeling….
