And yet, everyone I show the story to loves it, while the stories while my stories that I take my time on barely get any attention. And the video currently has 862 views and 13 'likes', while the videos I actually take time on struggle to get views in the double digits.
Now, don't get me wrong, I'm happy that people like both the story and the video, but it's just strange; as a kid, I had been brought up with the idea that if you work hard and put effort into something, it will be successful....and now that I'm adult I've found that that's not always strictly true. My uncle Lamar told me that that's just how it happens sometimes, even pointed to Hemingway's novel 'The Sun Also Rises' (At least I think it was, I'm not sure now) as an example. He told me that Hemingway wrote that book in less than a month and thought it was garbage. But once published, it became one of his most successful and beloved works.
There probably isn't a definitive answer to this, but it's just been bugging me is all.
I got to go.Thanks for reading. Later.
