a daily writing project for 2010

This is a project I’ve given myself – to write a substantive post every day in 2010.

I conceived it as an impetus for creative writing – I imagined writing bits of a play I’ve been working on as “live” posts – but it is tougher than I thought, and I’ve had phases where I wrote on current events and politics, poetry – and lately poetry and fun facts I’ve come across and want to share.

I have the tendency to think I am eternally a neophyte, that I’ve just started adulthood.  Which certainly has some advantages, but I want to also use this blog to remind myself I have lived through some things and have formed judicious opinions.

Wish I could say something “sexy” about my life, like I was raised by feral poodles and my childhood story’s been optioned by Pixar, or that I played Madison Square Garden on July 4th weekend 1986 – wait, I did do that.

Actually, a couple uneventful decades after I played Madison Square Garden, I got a heart attack while watching The Sound of Music – damn you, Nazis! – and ended up flatlining during a quadruple bypass a week later.  But I made it back from the edge.  I think.

  1. So, here’s the “about me”…now what’s this stuff about Madison Square Garden???! Also, I’m so glad you made it back from the edge. :))
