Anyway, I was writing to say that I have had this huge blog in the queue for over a week now about my summer reading and its general slack, but have had some trouble with the journaling software that I was using to write it. I wanted a journal that I could use on my laptop that could sync up with Blogger so that I could have a place to collect both my public and private writing. That way I would have an easy option for moving entries deemed share-worthy to my public forum. Alas, on the night I spent the most time trying to get the sync to work, the software failed and my ready-to-post blog was lost.
So, you'll have to wait a few more days for that. In the meantime, my I suggest that you dust off your old journal and put it back by the side of your bed? Consider this quote from Brenda Ueland (a probably very smart person that I have never heard of, yet whom was quoted by a smart academic person's blog I read [deep breath])
"We have come to think that duty should come first. Duty should be a byproduct. WRITING, the creative effort, should come first -- at least for some part of every day of your life. It is a wonderful blessing if you will use it. You will become happier, more enlightened, alive, impassioned, light-hearted and generous to everybody else. Even your health will improve."
Writing = good health. yay! So even this arguably pointless post did something for me. Sweet.
