Statement of Intent

I don’t have incredibly high expectations of this blog – I don’t particularly want fame or fortune, and (conveniently) neither of those is likely to occur. I don’t want to touch hearts, or save lives, or speak truth to power. All of those might be nice, but they are inessential.

What I do want is to use words again, to create something, even if it is meaningless, and trite, and a petty duplication of every other, better blog. It is an entirely selfish goal.

Ostensibly, everything I do every day is focused on words, but you would be amazed by how rarely I actually get to do anything interesting with them. I underline in red and I underline in green. I want to use words for their own sake, to discuss (hopefully) interesting ideas, to do something with them that isn’t correcting other people.

As such, I intend to use this space to write about things; primarily books, and occasionally drivel. Hopefully, anyone who stumbles across it will not find it too tedious.
