Comments on Comments

I read a lot more #fridayflash than I comment on.

There are many reasons for this, but one is time. For some reason I find writing a quick comment harder than sitting down to write the same number of words in fiction or blog. I find myself staring at the comment box trying to word my thoughts correctly, I often want to compliment and criticise (constructively) at the same time, and sometimes I do, but then I worry about offending people.

To be fair, my comments are usually taken as helpful, as intended. Which is a great relief. The #fridayflash community is a great thing to be a part of and I would really hate to offend anyone or come across as anything other than glad to be here and trying to help where I can, equally looking to learn where I can.

If you're on my blogroll, I read you. If you tag yourself in the #fridayflash report as science fiction or fantasy or magic realism, I read you, and more besides, time allowing. I just don't always manage a comment.

Just thinking aloud... ;)

The A to Z will continue, but slower now the pressure of the deadline is off, which is probably kind of missing the point... ;) J is a hard letter too. I have one in mind, but I want a better one... ;D
