Welcome to my blog. I could promise to write frequently, but I would almost certainly break that promise within a month. Being a partisan of the philosophy of managed expectations, I merely promise to write when it suits, or when the inclination takes me. Or when I'm bored. To answer the unasked question of 'why another blog?' I shall tell a brief anecdote. A man said recently, on hearing that I was hesitant about publishing my soon-to-be-completed novel: "You should. You've nothing to lose. Think of all the crap out there." This response promised to boost my confidence. Unfortunately it had more than two words. In essence, I sometimes itch to write what I think, and, assuming my thoughts are slowly, or never, to be published by other means, this seems like an appropriate outlet.
