In The Beginning Was The Word

...and the Word was with God and the Word was God.

I needed a new place to think. Something that was not about a project, be it a novel that looks like it might see physical manifestation in the autumn of 2005, a collection of columns that finally is at the printers as this is being typed, an "artwork / short story collection" in the shape of a cigar box, or a place to put a so-far-failed graphic novel (i.e., "comic book") series.

And here we are.

No pretense between us. No fancy title. A blog with my name on it. Something having to do with words -- my singular obsession, my mental illness, my uncontrollable compulsion. We'll play with them together, follow them, put them in uncomfortable combinations and see what they make us feel.

We will create universes with our words and be gods. And then we'll be very quiet and see what happens next...
