So why does anyone read authors’ blogs, anyway? Writers spend hour after hour honing their published texts, searching for the exquisite word, the finely turned phrase, the well-coiled paragraph, and yet apparently a segment of the reading public chooses to read their blogs, their before-and-afterthoughts, which they throw down on the paper without regard, like children spilling paint. Maybe that’s all a blog is, a catalogue of writers’ detritus, for embryonic and discarded and mutant thoughts, at best a collection of shards.
Well, I’ll give it a shot. I’m not yet sure to what extent this blog will be environmental, political, literary, or none of the above, (possibly even nothing at all!), but for awhile I’ll consider whether there’s any life in my scraps.
