If you insist on responding to hate, try the random lyric game I mentioned at the beginning of this story. The commenter will think you are so crazy that he’ll probably block you from his feed, fearing you’re some bizarre psychopath. I haven’t tried it myself, but the idea tempts me.
Haha, I really love this. Sometimes the responses are so pointless and insulting that it’s clear they’re just trolling, but I’m really tempted to respond! I’ll counter them with a fierce lyric.
Overall good advice in this post. I went big once, and while I’ve learned to neither chase another success nor ride the old post, I’ve dedicated myself to writing as often as possible…and you know what, the journey is the rewarding part (but the pay is nice too).
