This blog exists to keep me accountable. I’ve been trying to write more in the past year. Honestly, I’ve been trying to write more for the past two years. And I don’t want to call it a failure, but what I have mostly done is not writing – it’s scribbling.

I’ve done a lot of scribbling in notebooks. I’ve etched stray thoughts, I’ve made lists, vague outlines, and variations on those vague outlines. I’ve scratched out stray paragraphs for different pieces in different notebooks, hoping to one day tape them together.

This blog exists for the taping together. For gathering thoughts and words into one place, and hopefully fitting them together in ways that are interesting. If the posts are not interesting, at least, they will be real, and they will be mine.
