Just so you know what in the hell is going on for the next few weeks …
Since I have finally finished writing my dissertation, I have a little mental brain power available for other crap. Sure, I still need to finish up French and do the defense and teach my classes and all that, but it’s the thought that counts. Literally.
So, what I’m going to be putting up on the blog are a few extemporaneous writings — what Warren Ellis would label “flash fiction” — that are short stories or moments caught in time or short vignettes or whatever I feel like. This is mostly for myself, to get the creative juices flowing in the brain after a long period of prolonged academic wankery. But that doesn’t mean you, my loyal audience of three, can’t see the weird depths of my brain.
I’m not going to set any kind of requirement, such as putting up one per day or something like that, because I would never keep to it. Let’s just go where the day takes me.
Of course, to go totally against the spirit of the exercise, the first one to go up will be something I wrote in 2004. At least this gives you some idea of what I’m thinking about doing.
