Exciting things are afoot! Posts are moving all over the place, and then the header for the whole page up and changed and everything! What's all this, then?
Perhaps the transition from "random blog" to "book website" has been confusing. I know it has been for me, anyway. In the interest of ending confusion, I am currently in the process of redesigning, reconsidering, and revamping.
In a nutshell, this means: More stuff about my book. Less stuff about not my book.
A friend and I decided tonight that the question when blogging is: Who is this for?
A good question, indeed. If you're a "blogger" (um, ick?) like me, you may have to think on it for a while.
When is art a "hard-hitting truth" and when is it just confusing and negative? How much distance is needed to write good poetry? Is photography ever self-explanatory? When is an explanation ruined by being explained?
Most of all, when should a poem remain unwritten, or, barring that, be immediately ripped up and thrown away? Is it ever possible to truly rid yourself of poetry without writing it and showing it to people first?
Can you get to the good art without embarrassing yourself with all the bad art first?
I'll figure that out eventually. But not tonight. Tonight, I've gotten this far. That's far enough.
So, I hope the website and blog will be easier to navigate and more user-friendly moving forward.
More book-oriented, as they say.
I apologize if you have already been mauled by a grizzly. I thought he was friendly, but apparently, he was just a bear. I will buy you new eyes and pay for the medical 'copter. Just scoot over and leave a seat for me, because I think I got nicked by a claw, myself.
