Daily Prompt: Singular Sensation

If you could have a guarantee that one, specific person was reading your blog, who would you want that person to be? Why? What do you want to say to them?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us ONE.

Stauffacher Book shop, English dept., Bern

I do not want a guarantee for one specific person to read my blog, I want a guarantee that publishers, writers, and talent scouts for the Pulitzer/Man Booker/Nobel prize winners will be reading my blog every day. The reason is obvious, that my works of literature are read and rewarded with the prizes they deserve.

I sit at my computer in the afternoon straining my brain to find new depths of knowledge, words of wisdom and exploring the realms of descriptive words. I am a modest person basically and this is the reason why my talents go unrecognised. I really do not want to push myself into the midst of popularity, but I am convinced the time is now ripe.

The problem is mainly that there is always someone that has the idea first. I was going to write a book called “50 Shades of black” describing the life of a black stray cat that met a white Persian cat and the development of their love affair. Just as I was sending the manuscript to the Feline University Press, someone was there before me and stole the title of my book. – 50 Shades of G..y. My triumphal victory over second class literature was again thwarted and my originality was no longer original.

I then decided to publish my own page in Facebook. Admittedly this was a step down the ladder to success, but everything is worth a try. Here I was using a pseudonym (Angloswiss) but even this venture failed. I invited all my friends and some responded. I have more than 40 disciples in Facebook on this page. Ok, some are relatives, but some are not. I have almost 1,000 friends in Facebook, so where are the other 960 faithful readers of this page packed full with gems of literature. Perhaps the problem is that these 960 fans were only fans when I was playing games, hoping for an extra chance to complete a cooking battle in Café World or to farm some exclusive crops in Farmville. They just wanted to profit from my good nature, but never recognised my writing talent. To rub salt into the writing wounds, Facebook tell me that if I pay, my site will be promoted further. Pay! What an insult! I should pay for an undiscovered talent? Facebook should pay me for joining their site.

I am definitely on the wrong path with my search for fame. In the meanwhile I continue to write my daily prompt, hoping that perhaps Terry Pratchett, Stephen King, Tom Wolfe, Neil Gaiman and other such writers would stumble on my deserving efforts of blog and promote them with their publishers.

What would I say to these people? I would thank them for their recognition and give them details of my bank account to pass onto their publishers when my first works of literature appear. I would tell them to pass my blog link onto their author colleagues and to join my ever growing circle of disciples.

I will now come to a close, but do not forget. If you happen to know anyone interested in discovering a new blogging talent, especially if he or she is a talent scout for international publishers, just pass on my link and tell them to read my blog daily. In the meanwhile just look in to see whether I am still here. I might be discovered in the meanwhile and celebrating my new bestseller “Death of a Blogger”.

  2. I am glad to hear another person say that Facebook is generally useless. They should pay writers simply for showing up. I’ll do my part to ensure your success, though I am far from fame.:)

    • At least my other half reads my blogs, but he is not in the publishing business. There are so many unrecognised talents as we are in this blogging world.

      • I read mine aloud to my lady. Yes, there are very many talented writers around here. It is such a crowded room though and so few ‘make it’.

  5. I just started a Facebook Page. I have put it up and taken it down before, but decided to stick it out. Now I know that it is a waste of time. I heard that Google + was the place to gain readership and followers.

    I love your writing and your humor! I hope you win one of those coveted writing awards one day:)

    • I have kept my Facebook page as there are a few that stray there (my 1/2 daughter is a faithful follower). Google+ is ok, I automatically cross post. Originally I was in Multiply but it folded and we were all looking for something else. Most went to Blogger. I was already in Blogger, but that is not so good for finding an audience. However Blogger is a Google thing, My main site is WordPress. I like the people here, most basically interested in writing and I like the way it is organised. The people in charge look after their bloggers basically. Not perfectly perhaps, but who is perfect? And who needs an award. It is award enough when people look in with a kind comment. Thankyou
