Everybody Just Calm The Heck Down

The Sky Isn’t Falling Yet — Regardless Of What Henny Penny Says

Nothing but the best prognosticative methodologies for project work believe you me.


1. The reading time payout versus the clap payout will affect my revenue stream in either a positive or negative manner.

Of course, there will be no reason to mitigate a positive outcome.

Unless you’re at that magical tax bracket where the IRS looks your way and begins to rub their hands together in greedy anticipation.

2. The reading time payout versus the clap payout will negatively affect my revenue stream if I write one or two-minute poems or silly song parodies. It will impact me in the same negative fashion if I write micro-fiction.

3. The reading time payout will force everyone to write longer pieces, and if we start doing that, we’ll be darned if we do and darned if we don’t.

It seems as if no one has time for that either.

Are you seeing the mitigation trend here folks?

4. Clapping for a writer is meaningless now.

Clap folks, clap like the clapping fiends you should be. Spread the word you like what you just read.

Regardless of what Henny Penny is screaming in the barnyard at the top of her lungs, we need to look up at the sky and examine the situation for ourselves.

For now, until the warning sirens start to go off, everybody needs to calm the heck down and stop worrying about this.

If you need something to take your mind off your fears of the unknown, I have a suggestion.

Write something.
