Writers write because we’re attempting to communicate with ourselves and with others. I find that the more I write the clearer my thoughts are about many subjects. So that’s why I keep writing and that’s why I write so much. That, and the magnificent reality that computer keyboards don’t make my fingers ache the way typewriter keyboards used to. Forget about longhand with pen and ink. Technology is wonderful for writers.
In my other two blogs (which I will link to this one once I figure out how), I tend to write essays of around 1,000 words or more, which isn’t the true spirit of blogging. For this blog, I’m going back to my roots and aiming for succinctness. I also plan to experiment a bit with formats: you know, goof around.
The plan for this blog is to talk about writing. Mostly my writing, at first. Maybe always my writing. Depends. I’ll try to categorize as I go, because I also like to talk about clutter, and gardening, and whatnot. Definitely whatnot.
