So, I figured I needed a little niche within the intertubes – partly because of that natural impulse to graffiti your voice on every surface you come across; partly because I want to give my writing the consistent dose of love I owe it; partly because I want to share some of my weird-ass tastes with all you weird-ass people who are still reading this; and also because I want to build myself a little bakery for artistic projects where you can get ‘em warm an’ fresh an’ free. If I can accomplish any of these things, then I think the purpose of this thing will be well fulfilled. All of which leads me to…
THE PROMISE: to post one finished piece of creative work at least once a week.
Be it a short story, a chapter of a tale, a poem, a recorded reading, a song, a dramatic scene, the plans for another universe, a plot to bring about the fall of our doppelgänger overlords, or any coherent fragment of my mind enjoyable enough to warrant a few kilobytes on the vast Wildlands of the Web. Ok. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but I promise that I will gear every particle of oxygen I draw from this world towards creating something worthy of a few minutes of your time a week.
Well I’m sure that’s quite enough rambling for tonight. So here goes the first of my children, and hopefully every Sunday, we’ll give it a sibling. So by the end of the year I’ll have my own little army of 52+ pieces of writing to invade the internet with. I have a lot of fun things planned for this blog, and I’d love any comments from anyone who’s taken the time to read my stuff.
This is a little poem I wrote when thinking about Chile, and what it is to me, and what it is to other people. It sounds a lot better spoken than read. Hopefully, I’ll upload a recording eventually.
