Raison d'Etre

This blog has been created for the most straightforward reason imaginable: I wanted to post a comment in my friend Maureen McHugh's blog -- it's at maureenmcq.blogspot.com; go check it out -- and you have to go the full join-up route just to do that. So in for a penny, I guess.

Like Maureen, I write science fiction (and other stuff) for a living. I have a few other things in common with her, about which I may be more forthcoming at a future time. I will aspire to a becoming unpretentiousness in this blog -- it has much to be unpretentious about -- but I cannot promise to meet expectations, especially if someone expects, say, a proper deference to the current Commander in Chief. "Ballast for My Gorge" once occurred to me as a good title for a memoir, which I do not propose to write anytime soon. If it doesn't strike you as witty, perhaps I will do better tomorrow.

Let my first displayed virtue be that of brevity.

Greg! I think you'll like a blog. And I'm certain you'll be good at it. You have a particular talent for the kind of well-reasoned, interestinf mini-essay that the forms rewards. So I'll be checking here often.

Well, let's try not to form a mutual admiration society!

I will put up a short post every morning and see how it goes. If it feels as though I am simply dropping pennies down a grate, I will cease. But any readership will doubtless take some time to form, which counsels patience.

Well, I signed on too, just so I could say hello to Maureen and weigh in here, if necessary. I'm not sure I can promise to check in every morning to see what you've posted, but I'm not sure I can promise to post in my own blog either. We'll see.

Welcome to the club. If this works out for you, I suspect this is where you'll end up doing more of your posting.

I promise not to post on a frequent basis over at mine. But at least this is accessible from work.
