I've sort of abandoned this blog for a bit, because save for the occasional substantive entry it had begun to feel like more of a diary than anything. I'm not really the type of person to keep a diary, and I seriously doubt anyone's all that interested in the minutiae of my daily life. (And anyway, the people who are have already "friended" me on Facebook... where, as it turns out, I actually haven't spent much time talking about my daily life recently. Ah, well.) Not to mention that I am a writer of fiction, and my current fiction projects have taken up quite a bit of my mental real estate for the past few months...

However, from time to time I get the urge, or maybe "compulsion" would be a better term, to write something that is neither fiction nor a narrative of my day. And, well, if I'm going to write, I want to have an outlet for it. No sense keeping it to myself!

So, I'm going to take a different tack with this blog going forward, and try to limit my entries to the substantive, the humorous, or even the sarcastic. (Yes, yes, Dear Reader, I'll wait while you pick your jaw up off the floor where it fell  at the thought of my employing actual sarcasm.)

Oftentimes, I'll be doing some fairly mindless task such as yard work, folding laundry or washing dishes -- I lead such an exciting life! -- while mulling over some topic or other, and a fully-formed essay will come into being in my head. I've decided to start writing those out again and put them here, rather than allowing them to simply rattle about in my cranium and have wild parties (besides, I got stuck with the pizza bill the last time that happened). Having an outlet seems to be a useful thing, and just maybe someone will find my thoughts on this or that subject interesting enough to sit down and actually read them.

I'm not sure when the first entry in the "new" paradigm will occur, but as soon as something good pops into my brain and demands to be written, it'll wind up here. Stay tuned!

Blogger has been a pain in the rear lately, so I'm moving everything to Dreamwidth. I'll lose the comments, sadly, but there aren't that many of them, so I suppose it's okay. At least Dreamwidth plays reasonably well with most people, whereas Blogger has had issues. You'd think it would work quite well for me, given that I use Google's Chrome browser and use Gmail as my primary e-mail, but I think I'm just more comfortable with the Dreamwidth interface and its ease of use. I generally write blog entries when I have limited time to mess around, and would prefer to save the more complicated stuff for my author's website, since I maintain that completely on my own.

The good part about all of this is that I'm likely to post a lot more often if I'm using Dreamwidth. So watch for more entries.

The link to the new site will stay live on Blogger for a week or two before I wipe the account, and I'll see you all on the flip side.
