From another posting (mine):
I was really disheartened when Multiply shut down. I’d been on it a couple of years and it was a great discipline for me. I wrote at least one entry a week of no less than 400 words and some of the entries were really quite good. Now I’m doing one hundred words a day, which is more in terms of word count, but less in terms of focus on a topic.
“Generally, my whole writing focus has gone to hell after Multiply’s demise. As all of you who have been here a while know, I’ve not been doing much of anything- too scattered in thought and deed-. I used to be a regular, here, but even that has not been true for a long time now.”
Multiply’s demise is some time, now. When I get disheartened, I get disheartened.
I will speak a truth, I have no faith this spot will be here for any longer than it takes for someone to make a huge amount of money by selling it. And the search for a spot will start again.
This time, I’m going to cheat a little and save backups on every important entry.
