I thought about writing a piece about netiquette, but I still don’t really have anything in me to put out into the public. Which, ironically, conforms to someone’s rule five – making oneself look good online. Okay, not as specified by those examples, but it’s still apt – sharing the inner workings of me on a week like the one I’ve been having isn’t exactly the wisest call. *chuckles*
That, of course, harkens back to rule one – remembering that behind each screen, there is a person. Those who know me know that I’m tough, but fair – I work very hard to use what powers I have to swot people into behaving appropriately, and being themselves. If anything, I’m stress-inducingly cautious online, because I can’t pick up all the cues, and I don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings. That also ties in nicely with rule three – there are those who aren’t perhaps socially able in meatspace diving into depths unknown because they figure if X is doing it, then Y can do it automatically.
So, in short – my poor little brain is still too addled to make hide nor hair of things, hee hee. I’m taking what little writing ability/brainspace I have to try and nudge along my poor story for The Chrysalis Experiment. I don’t know if I’m actually going to get where I want to with it before the day is up, but whatever I do manage will get posted over at my blog for that in the next 24 hours. I do hope I can squeeze it, ’cause it’s a story I want to write, and am enjoying writing. But at the exact second, I’m having to convince myself that it’s okay to have two third person omniscient viewpoints going on at the same time! 😀
