Writer Unboxed latest post consists of the contributor’s Valentine notes to Writing.
Now, I’m not a contributor, but I have been in a long-term relationship with writing, so like many readers I too added mine in the comments.
. . . then I thought it would also look nice here (with a few minor revisions – Writing requested them) . . .
~ ~ O ~ ~
You know I respect you and enjoy your company, and I appreciate all the worlds, ideas, and characters you’ve helped me explore . . .
. . . but . . .
. . . look, no offense, but you need to start pulling your weight around here. For instance, it would be nice if once in a while you would bring in a few buck.
And, what’s with consistently being the least-read posts on my blog? Yes, perhaps my readers are not the reading type, preferring Photography over you, but still, I put a lot more effort into you than Photography.
Lest you think yourself not beautiful, not clever, and not worthy of praise, know I think the world of you. Of all the Writing I come across, I much prefer reading you, oh my Writing, over any other.
. . . but . . .
. . .this relationship is difficult for me; I need something in return, you see.
I showcase you, present you to the unwashed masses, give you a pedestal from which to shine, but you just sit there.
If you could only make the effort to grab a few more readers, ensnare them with the goodness I know is in you, and open their eyes to the depth and breadth of your brilliance . . . but you just don’t seem to care.
Don’t worry; I’m yours forever, and you are mine, but still . . . could you give me any indication you want to be my valentine?

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.
