The try out blog, to test the program, like an experiment in evolution and even more like the first mark in clay or on paper. There must be a beginning. In the print world, the first mutterings usually get cut because once the piece is under way, not to mention complete, it has gone somewhere else, like life itself--to beat up a metaphor. The best is not designed before hand, except in the loosest sense--there are grammatical, rhetorical, logical, factual, temporal rules to follow or violate--but writing ain't painting by numbers. It's not winging it either--for most of us, not only because of those rules but also because writing is so hard, there's no point to starting without a reason.
This blog is intended to present connections and, I hope, insights that might not otherwise see the light of day but that have merit. I post it now to get going, so I can design the site.
