In relation to a writer, most readers believe in the Double Standard: they may be unfaithful to him as often as they like, but he must never, never be unfaithful to them.
-- W. H. Auden

Sneak Peek

 

I've been dissatisfied with my web site for a while now. Grumblings of this were evident a while back, and I spoke of a site redesign.

A friend of mine told me that bullets are more powerful than prose, and by that she meant that I should speak in bullets, not paragraphs. That simple statement, said a year ago, got me thinking a great deal. Other events and statements by others have attached themselves to that to create a new life, so to speak. My new life.

What I aim for is a succinct, well-designed model.

Sometime later next week, I'll unveil the new web site and the content of my posts will change dramatically.

Prose when writing, bullets when blogging!! Otherwise we writers are doomed! :-)

Yeah - most likely. But as you know, sometimes, the more verbose I am as I work out my process before I'm ready to present, I can cause someone to mistake my point. Clarity is everything. I'm not nearly clear enough, I fear.

Hmmm. Agreed, clarity is everything. And brevity is important, especially in this medium, which seems to thrive on ADHD. :-) I've been playing with the idea of doing a website of my own, but I sort of fear that nobody will have the attention span to read it (other than those who care about me--and even they may lose interest).

Regardless, I have a great quote to share with everybody about writing. I saw 'Stranger Than Fiction' the other day---loved, loved, loved it!

'Like anything worth writing, it came inexplicably and without method.'

That is so true. Process is messy. Presentation is important. I need to remember that my thin-lipped editor lady in my brain is not so important sometimes. Sometimes raw and childlike is best.

Thank you, Bella :)
