musings, part two, and say hello

Just after I started this journal, over a year ago, one day I was making a post when Rice stuck his head in my office and asked what I was doing. I told him, and he said, "You have a blog?"

One day we were driving, I don't recall where, and this journal came up. Rice said, "You have a blog? I didn't know you had a blog."

This happened at least one other time.

Last night J-Spot linked Rice to this journal. "You have a blog?"

So Rice is now catching up on all the lovely, witty things I have, or have not, said over the past year and will probably be reading this entry, too. So say hello, all. It will make him feel better for being left in the dark :).


I appreciate everyone's comments to my post last night. I also received some very appreciated sage advice from Jason Lundberg (he's very wise) and Caitlin Kiernan.

Because it's good advice for the writer in so many situations, I'd like to share a couple of lines from Kiernan's email:

"You're the storyteller. Trust yourself. It's not very practical advice for a young writer, but it might be the best I have to give."

I may have to copy that down and post it on my desk somewhere. There have been too many times where I've trusted myself when writing, or almost transcribing in some situations, and then second guessed myself afterwards, e.g. as a result of a critique, only to find that I shouldn't have questioned myself in the first place.

That's not to say that I don't need editing or that I don't need to improve; I do, but at the same time, instincts are there for a reason.
