Abandon Text!

W. H. Auden once said: "Poems are not finished; they are abandoned." I have been abandoning writing projects for many years, since only the pressure of deadline and high expectations ever got me to finish, or even start, anything of merit. This blog is an attempt to create a more consistent, self-directed writing habit. Hopefully a direction and voice will emerge.

"Daddy, what's GoldMine?"

"Daddy, where are you going?"
"I can't stay with you tonight, Boo-boo. I need to go back downstairs and work tonight."
"You're going to work on GoldMine?"
"You know about GoldMine?"
He sighs. "Yeah, I know about it . . . but it's really hard to explain."
