I know I have been entirely to influenced by the social media noise machine. Social Media causes too many writer and other artists (like me) to compare ourselves to the success of peers we see and to feel like we will neverevernever have those kind of successes. The things is SM is almost always "The Best Of" no matter what corner you are in. it's almost designed to make artists feel bad about their careers because they are not successful enough. Add in the pandemic and it's a recipe to destroy careers. The weird thing, I've written about this stuff myself in the past (back in the long past days of Live Journal). I know better. Maybe I need to find that post of mine and read it again.
