Basically, I want to write. I feel like I have a certain natural talent for the English language, and I haven’t developed it. I write slowly and sometimes my ideas don’t flow smoothly. I think that I have a difficult time reverse engineering my decisions and thought processes. Hopefully, writing my thoughts down will help me see how I come to my conclusions. And I want to make writing a habit. I think I have certain intellectual needs that wind up being underserved in day-to-day life. I haven’t figured out how to get them met in a consistent way.
I’ve kept a diary for years, but I want this blog to serve a different function. I want an audience that I can correspond with. I want feedback. Feel free to send me an email. That said, I’ve closed the comments section because I think that they are more trouble than they are worth. If I care what you think, you have my email address or know how to get it.
At the moment, the scope for my blog is experience, absurdity, and the interplay of experiencing absurdity. So basically, life as we know it. I figure its a broad enough scope so I won’t become bored with it.
I have a confession to make. I don’t like most blogs (or journalism, for that matter). Most blogs are platforms for writers to make things up to support their world views. They are exercises in ego and self-validation and therapy. I promise to at least try to be different, although I may fail from time to time. Please tell me when I do.
And if I start sounding like Kanye, take me out back and shoot me in the head.
