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.

Take the fifth

Sometimes I stare at the screen and don't write anything because I think I don't have anything good to say. And sometimes I know exactly what needs to be said, but it's too close, too personal, too uncomfortable to write about just yet. Tonight is one of those nights. I just don't have it in me right now. Let's just say that I went to the SKS office in downtown Raleigh, rummaged through the archives, and got heartbreakingly depressed.
