Post-crastination

typewriter-584696_1280

There’s a patron-inspired post I’ve been putting off writing. For a long time. A very long time. Why? Because it terrifies me. Okay, “terrifies” is a strong word. Maybe it just intimidates me. Yeah. That’s it.*

Brandee is one of my favorite people in the world. Like several other of my favorite people in the world, she’s a librarian, and when she started supporting me on Patreon, she requested a post on libraries or librarians. I love libraries. And librarians. So, in a way, it’s a match made in heaven. However, I’m far from the first person to write a blog post about the glory/importance of libraries.

That’s what’s so intimidating. Knowing what I write is following (and thus, may be compared to) the likes of Neil GaimanThe Bloggess, John Scalzi, and many many others? That gives me the impostor-syndrome shakes.** Which, I suppose, makes this post a bit of a two-in-one for me. Continue reading

New Purpose? Or New Chance to Fail Slackily?

Hey all! Remember that post back in…*goes to check* HOLY CRAP THAT WAS APRIL. I was thinking it was a couple of months ago, like Octoberish. Oy vey. Anyway, you still don’t know which post I’m talking about. It’s this one, in which I postulate this blog might become more like an online journal, where I’ll actually post from time to time about random observations rather than waiting for something big that I spend hours on. I really want to make that happen. I feel like my writing skillz are in danger of rusting. I cobble together a post for each week’s Verity!, but perhaps that’s not enough.

To that end, I’m going to make a real effort to slap more stuff up here more often. In fact, this morning a random observation struck me. It was something fairly brief, but interesting enough that I found myself wanting to share it. It was the perfect kind of thing to cover here.

Goddamn I wish I could remember what it was.

Anyway, now that I’ve stated my intent, perhaps the next time something interesting strikes me (and takes more than 140 characters to cover), I’ll jot the bloody thing down so I remember it when I have time to really write.

Wish me luck folks. I think I’ll need it.
