A Keeper of Words



Post-Script: Reference yesterday's blog article, "Shreddings 1.0."

It's all too easy, once blogging becomes a weekly ritual, to focus one's creative output strictly for that purpose; the same, I suppose, if I were intending to be a published author, where the lines of distinction between writing and self-marketing become blurred. But writing must find another place in our lives, if it is to be a true fount of creativity. Rather than output, it needs to become an inner resource.

I couldn't agree more.

I write about 100 pages a year in journals that no one sees.

Oh yes. I keep a plastic bin of the typescripts that don't make it to the scanner. it is now overflowing. I may take up the "excerpts" idea for a future blog post and pour through that bin. If nothing else, it'll be fun to ponder stuff I wrote and forgot about. :D
