Well, I will talk about that some other time (probably in a post entitled something witty and clever like, "On Dialogue"). But this post is more about the blog in general.
I know lots of you read this (I can see it from StatCounter, BlogPatrol, and SiteMeter, all of which I use for slightly different reasons). I know that some of you are people who just stumble onto the blog accidentally, and it isn't really your cup of Joe(l), and that's cool too. But I also know that a number of you are regular or semi-regular visitors here.
So speak up, will ya? I love reading comments, and I know that some posts get decent numbers of comments. But I also find that my posts get many fewer comments than those of other screenwriting blogs. So it is less a dialogue (as I'd prefer it be) than a monologue in which I feel like I'm lecturing or something.
Now I'm not asking you to just leave a comment for the sake of leaving a comment, and to make me feel better. But I kind of wonder what it is about my posts that seem to elicit fewer responses than others. Am I forceful in my writing, in an overbearing kind of way? Do I not ask enough questions of you? (Here's a few.) I hope the subject matter is interesting. Yes? No?
Regardless, I'd love it if y'all left me comments more regularly, and not just those that let me know you're reading. Although those are cool too. But rather, let's turn this into more of a dialogue. If you're interested, that is!
