Pariah in Motion
A writer's web outlet.
Will this be a waste of time? Maybe. Harlan Ellison wouldn't endorse the practice. But then again--he doesn't endorse much, does he? Would Ray Bradbury journal on the Web? I don't know. I'm guessing: No. But Neil Gaiman does; however, he has a nice little fifedom of fandom who happen to be interested in his blog posts.
I'm not sure why I'm doing this.
The idea I have in mind at the moment is that this little template will be an outlet for writing. Blog-style of course, with all the sides: streaming thoughts via keyboard, uncensored, un-edited, and minus the spellcheck. I'm not great at writing via a keyboard. I prefer long-hand and plugging my writing into the keyboard later. But this is just a quick outlet to write straight from the computer keyboard.
In other words, this is just another meager experiment in journalling. I usually journal right before I begin my fiction writing. This should be an experimental supplement that is just another excuse to write. Perhaps the underlying motive here is to provide an outlet for me that won't solely consist of mindless surfing, chatting, and gameplaying. That's mostly what I've used the computer for. But I need discipline in my life and here is a little toy I can tinker with that will be productive.
I can't promise that this will be of any interest to anyone out there--but refer to the above paragraphs: this is for me.
And right now, I've set up my lair where procrastinating writers like to study and write. I'm listening to the Lord of the Rings soundtrack--probably the 10th time I've listened to it all the way through--and I'm doing some research. I recommend seeing the film if you haven't already. I've seen it three times and I'm sure to see it a few more times. To read some of my thoughts on the film, you can read a post I wrote on a gaming forum last week.
I believe it's the 59th post or so--signed cK-matador.
It's a majestic film. Maybe you'll think the same.
