I know I have few followers here, and I have not maintained this blog well at all. I feel guilty, yet I feel the need to return here. Since beginning this blog as a forum for some of my fiction works, it has remained largely empty although my physical notebooks have burst after writing something along the lines of 700 poems (or collections of short lines because I’m not sure I can call them poems yet). I intend, however, to manipulate my original conception of this blog, transitioning from a collection of fiction to an expression of nonfiction (or creative nonfiction) because I need to hone those skills more than my creative writing.
WordPress, then, appears the best place for me to do so. In the years since my last post, I have acquired a teaching position in an Oklahoma high school, and my other outlets of creativity have been compromised by tech-savvy students who tend to find out more about me than I know about myself. Regardless, this blog is more secretive and more exclusive. Although I don’t need a clandestine safe-zone, I do need a forum that doesn’t create those distracting questions when I try to teach Gatsby or short fiction.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy some of the discussions I proffer. I hope to engage amicably with anybody who agrees, disagrees, or doesn’t care.
Thanks for reading.
