OK, I’m starting this blog that I’ve been threatening.

The questions I’ve been asked are “Why?” and “What are you going to write about?” The answers are “Why not?” and “Everything,” respectively. More specifically, this blog is my defense against all those well-intentioned friends and relatives who keep asking, “Why aren’t you writing?” It’s also me encouraging myself to write by making it public. It’s a journal, of sorts, and a way for people to know what’s going on with me. This will save my friends from the “intimate spam” of mass emails.

Sometimes, I’ll write about what’s going on in my life, or something I’ve seen or heard. Hopes, dreams, that sort of thing. Essays, writing samples, lists, poems, stories, song lyrics. I’ve just started writing a novel; I won’t be posting chapters here, but I may give updates on its hero, Eugene.

There may be some talk of knitting or weight loss efforts, but god forbid I should write exclusively about those topics.

I’m not going to promise to write every day. I know myself better than that. But I do promise to not let it die a premature death from neglect.

Finally, I would love to hear from you, so please post your comments or questions.
