I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

I am someone.
Who is none of your business.

Bits of Lit

Just finished noding Housman's Last Poems. There are a few icky spots where poems had been previously noded. These will be taken care of posthaste. I recently filled out the holes in our copy of A Shropshire Lad. Icky spots there for the same reason. Same posthaste applies.

Okay, so you read down this far. I'll let you in on a secret: my writing philosophy. See, I don't write for you, even though you think you're my audience. I write for myself. The authors I like to read wrote for themselves, not for some nebulous "public". I read Dickens, not Faulkner. I read Rand, not Clancy. And when one of my undergrad writing instructors told me, "Think of your audience!" I calmly replied, "My audience is people who like what I write."

That said, I hope you like what I write. I have said I write for myself, and that's true. But I share — I node and publish and post and weblog — for you.

I want to know what you think about what I write. I want to know that I inspired thought, and that there are others who, all on their own, think like me.

If you don't like what I write, that's alright too. I entertain no belief that I'm "normal". Normal is a disease. Weird is the cure.

Downvote if you want, too. It's your right. I've been downvoted and upvoted. My most-C!hinged writeup is my most-downvoted. I've only had one writeup nuked, and shortly thereafter I had several people tell me it was one of their favourites.

If you don't like what I write, don't worry. You're not my audience.
