About This Site

I've been trying to figure out why I dislike this blog so much, and tend to write far more on my other one.  The words and ideas are scattered, but I'm going to try to pull them together here.

Near as I can figure, I'm really just trying to use this one as a free website, something that's updated occasionally, as needed, with information that doesn't change.  This ain't really a blog in the sense of a forum for my writing.  I think of this one as my face, and that one as the murky crap that lies beneath, which might explain why I don't formally have my name attached to that one, even though I always reference it from accounts which do have my name attached.  I want to be seen.  I don't want to be seen.  I don't know what the hell I want.

This one is meant to be my, ahem, professional site, where I list things I've written, and try to sound all serious and grown-up and self-promoting.  I also tend to write happy things here.  I save my snark for the other blog, by and large.  But to be honest, I find this blog supremely boring.  I created it originally because one must these days if one is to be a writer engaged in the public domain.  Selling oneself and one's work is required.  Most writers loathe this side of the profession; I am no different. I accept it, but I hate it.  Nevertheless, this is my internet address, so you can find me, and, if you're interested, know a bit about me.

If you want to know what I think, however, you'd probably do better looking here.  I won't continue blogging at this URL, but I will update the pages with relevant info about my career, and how to contact me.

If you want to know what I do with my non-writing life, you can look here.

Thanks for walking with me thus far on the journey.  Peace out.
