It began with my website, an author page dedicated to promoting Fish-Eye Lens, my first novel. Much has changed since then. FEL was published and had a few fans, mostly those who knew/know the Turks and Caicos Island, but it was by no means a "success." My intended audience - island dreamers who want the good life - wanted more of the fantasy and less of the reality of island life than I offered. Sorry, but I can't help telling it like it is instead of like you want it to be.
And so FEL sank into the obscurity it probably deserved. Yet I continued the blog, thinking that some might still be amused by the connections between RVA urban concerns and TCI tales. Also, my husband encouraged the discipline of a weekly deadline for whatever audience might be out there.
It has indeed been fun, but I'm not sure that the blog is my forté. It's not edgy; it's not uncomfortably personal; it's not suffused with a forceful opinion beyond my own aging-boomer rants that have become commonplace. And I suspect that most, even in my generation, would more likely "like" Facebook memes than read through and respond to blogs these days.
So, whattayasay? Time to say goodbye? I'm thinking so. I don't think anyone will miss anything if this doesn't happen next week. Correct me if I'm wrong.
