Welcome to my first blog entry at this site. Which isn't, in fact, my first blog entry, but it is at this site. It seems like it would make sense to centralize one's blogs, or coordinate them. I think I'll make this my place to blog. Except when I feel like posting Duran Duran videos in which case I'll bump over to MySpace or Last.fm.
So what to blog about? I could blog about my two cats but that doesn't seem to make sense for a books site. Though they serve as constant sources of inspiration and love. Hmmm. Hmmm. Well, I'm working on a new book but my superstitiousness warns me not to talk about it until a contract is signed. I also have an idea for a novel. Perhaps after one more children's book I'll explore it more. I love writing for both adults and children. They require two completely different states of mind and I'd say the major differentiating factor is a sense of pure innocence versus the dichotomy of innocence and corruption. How to reconcile wanting to stay pure with surviving as an adult. And how many of us do it "successfully"? And why does it seem like internalizing corruption is synonymous with growing up? It isn't, it can't be, but it sure seems that way sometimes. Should I go back to talking about my cats?
OK, I'll leave it at that for now. Short, but, hey, it's my first blog. At this site.
In the immortal words of Duran Duran, "Is there anyone out there?" If so, I'd love to know your thoughts.
