New Newness

Over the past year, I've been told at least a dozen times that I need to write more.I assume that people expect me to write about stuff that matters in the honest style in which I tend to write when writing about honest things honestly.

I make no promises to write regularly, or even at all.

I will, however, promise to write fully and with good intentions.

I also promise to kind of hate this whole writing/creativity thing and get frustrated and have long periods of silence wherein I do absolutely nothing.

David Foster Wallace said something once about the tragedy of creativity, which is that almost nothing you ever do can be as perfect outside of your head as it exists inside it. I agree completely about whatever it was he said that resembled that, but I take it down a notch because it does feel good to do something sometimes.

So this blog is supposed to be that something.
