Which has lit a fire under my ass to get my stories properly locked up. I'm moving everything that's on a community and leaving links to where I'm posting those stories here.

There are 80-something of you who have friended me, though there are more people I've friended, because I check out sportshoes every so often and add new members, to give them a chance to actually click those links and get some story. Right now there are there are about 150 or so people I have friended.

Why am I telling you this?

I can't tell you how much better it makes me feel to have a number of people who might have read a story I posted when comments are few-to-none. I can't really explain why, but I want to try.

I don't feel as though I know everyone on my flist, but you all have names, and lives, and for the most part I'm welcome in the parts of those lives that you share here. It changed what felt like being consumed by invisible masses and sharing with my peers. I'm more relaxed, more comfortable. I like all of you.

I'm not in Wiseguy fandom, but hearing about it evokes nostalgia: I used to watch it regularly with my mother.

I know how that is. *g* And, of course, I do write other things now and again.

It's the only way to do it, imho. It provides a wall between you and the obsessive harassers. Even if someone sneaks under the radar with a fake name, it adds an extra patina of pathos to them that they'd be that sick and obsessive.

So far I've been spared that, but it does make me feel safer and happier.
