Perhaps I should stop putting all of these writings on my web page, and stop showing them to people. They're not awful, but they're not particularly impressive either. However, suppose I continue writing this stuff and it is only discovered pusthumously. Rather than a mediocre artist, I will be thought of as a closet genius -- the sheer bulk of my writings found all at once will make me a shoe-in for geniushood.
On the other hand, that won't do me any good for the time being. Damn my short-sightedness.
