In order to accommodate the ideas that violate the House Rules, I’ve created a second blog for myself. This one is private (so don’t bother looking for it) and contains random phrases and reminders to myself. I spend most of my time in front of a computer anyway, and unlike post-its tucked in my notebook, the blog is searchable. And unloseable. And it’s struck me as such a good idea that I’m tempted to go enter in all those loose scraps of paper that have made their way home with me over the last couple of years. Those of you who know how far behind I am in typing my real writing know that I will never, ever do this. But maybe this will work out better than scraps of paper, which end up in a big manila envelope on my coffee table and rarely get reread.
