I find it interesting by the way, that no one has commented on or appeared to notice either the pictures or the little poem I wrote at the end of this article.

 

Hellooooo....   is anyone out there???   :^)

Just as constructive critizism; you need to move the series forward now just a little bit. Maybe a little more precise and little less poetic, just a bit. Your readers has apriciated your skilled poetry with words but now as a reader it feels to abstract. Your former series was very detailed just like a story moving forward with every chapter having it's own contained story. Very action oriented and action is character. The actions of a person describe the character and also what's going on the inside. Maybe you can describe more of your day to day life of how you are dealing with your emotions. A little less abstract! Use more of the external to decribe your internal strugle. I understand that critique on this very sensitive and personal mater can seem like a personal attack but to us readers now every last entry in this blogg have become to simular. Your readers are very invested into your jeourney and have followed with great intrest. The critique is just about that each entry needs to be a little bit more differant than the last one. All the best with your life and writing.

Barry me wee laddy, I noticed the pictures and the poem right away, I felt that you were allowing or incorperating these items to help the reader understand or try to see how you actually were and are still feeling. I think personally we have all felt like this more than once in our lives in reference to the images and poems.  Souls crying out in hurt, anguish, pain, bewilderment, tortured. In our heads the monster lies behind the door....do we scream or not scream, if we scream will anyone hear? 

My close friend always told me if we are dumped by a woman get vengence by f@#king her best friend or as many of her friends as we can with no remorse, I personally could not do that nor would I do that. I think a better way of dealing with a bad breakup(dumped) is to do things that we feel soothing to our soul, to put ourselves first in our lives(most likley for the first time), to understand it is ok to live and look forward to a life without her or them in it, knowing it will challenge us but we are strong, virile independant men, we do not need a woman in our llives to be happy or fulfilled but it is nice to have one...

"you need to move the series forward now just a little bit..... Your readers have appreciated your skilled poetry with words but now as a reader it feels too abstract"


I appreciate the good, well meaning advice, SwedenViking.  Thank you.



By the way, I just took a look at the notes I've yet to publish in this series.  I've written about another 10,000 words but to my own surprise, at the end of all these words I've yet to leave my dorm room!  (sweat)

 

So rather than inflict everyone with another bunch of blogs where I'm still sitting on my bed wondering what the hell is going on, I shall take your advice and try to accelerate the action a bit.

 

 

"I understand that critique on this very sensitive and personal matter can seem like a personal attack"
 

Genuine, well meaning advice like you've described would never be taken personally or in the wrong way by me.  I understand and value what you're saying.  My best wishes to you.  (handshake)(beer)

Thanks buddy... it seems you're in the minority here!  (giggle)

 

"I felt that you were allowing or incorperating these items to help the reader understand or try to see how you actually were and are still feeling"

 

Exactly correct, you're smarter than most!  (clap)

 

"I think a better way of dealing with a bad breakup(dumped) is to do things that we feel soothing to our soul, to put ourselves first........ to understand it is ok to live and look forward to a life without her or them in it, knowing it will challenge us but we are strong, virile independant men, we do not need a woman in our llives to be happy or fulfilled"


Very wise words indeed. And so true. Thank you, my friend.  (clap)(beer)(handshake)

Paul, if you're bored with my articles, please move on to someone else's blog and harass them with your uncalled for, unnecessary and uncool taunts from the sideline.

 

Stop reading my stuff and you won't be bored.  It all seems so simple really, doesn't it?    :^)

Barry, first of all, I want to suggest that you try to take @PaulFox1 's comment, my own comments, @anonymous16539 's comments and @SwedenViking 's comments all as being "genuine, well meaning advice". The difference is we are each coming from a different position vis a vis your personal life.

Paul is someone who is a fellow Australian so has a better cultural handle on you, has been blogging alongside you for many years, is in contact with you privately as a 'friend", and has a personal approach to life that is to speak to everyone, especially his friends, in an "unedited, politically incorrect, blunt as a club, say it as it is" sort of way. I am 100% sure that his saying "Nah. We're all bored shitless" was intended as a well meaning wake up call to the fact that you were going on a little long with this.

I can assure you that was my intention when I said "I don't knw where you're going with this."  I was stating my true feelings about what you had written, and meant it as a true expression of confusion as to what was really going on in your head at the then present moment. Were you describing past feelings or present feelings? If present feelings, are yu okay and not about to do yourself serious injury?

I want to suggest to you that writing what you have already posted, plus 10,000 more yet to be posted words, is no doubt extremely therapeutic and well worth the effort. But it is the writing of those words that is so therapeutic for yourself. It is the process of taking those words, and nore importantly the muddled confusing thoughts behind them, and organizing them in a visual, readable and therefore cogent and understandable way, that leads to a healing process within your own body and soul. That therapy is gained from the writing.

I believe that we all were aware of that, and were not in anyay trying to belittle or under value the bebefit you must have gained from that wriitng.

But the posting of all that writing is another thing.  The writing is about you and what is good for you, and every tiny drop of benefit you gain from the writing is yours and yours alone, and none of us should be, nor were, trying to belittle or demean. But when it comes to the posting, as you have already acknoleged yourself, another 10,000 words would be a little much.

I think that is what each of us, in our own well meaning and well intended, albeit perhaps somewhat clumsy way, were trying to convey to you. Nothing more.

John, you've hit the proverbial nail on the head here. I am NOT trying to insult Barry, I am just reminding him that even though we're at part SIX - there has been no sign of a 'date'

I know I couln't manage another 10,000 words on this subject - probably not even 1000, lol

Barry writes good stuff, but this one is depressing and appears to be going nowhere

Sorry, Baz, just saying mate. You know how we roll, lol
