Once more, with feeling!
Time to return to the blog. No one reads it, but I enjoyed keeping the previous incarnation for fourteen years. A good long time. Until I lost my credit card in Phuket, Thailand (a journey documented here: https://strangehorizons.travellerspoint.com/). And then forgot to update a new card on my hosting account. Everything lost.
But the thing about loss is it’s always a good opportunity to start again.
So to recap, I am a writer. Mostly poetry, but I’m trying fiction now too. And essays, I suppose, but more epistolary ones that I wrote during a correspondence with another writer. The blog is an interesting medium in that it provides me with a platform to write to an audience and not just one specific person, be it either me or a friend. So here we go again.
I need some sort of outlet, some way to write aside from my work. I guess it helps me reflect. Anyway, blogs are kind of dead now, aren’t they? It’s too bad.
