Wait, another freaking blog????

Yeah, I know. I labored over the decision to start yet another blog. I mean, I have the cartoon blog, the radio show blog, and the editorial blog (well, technically, that is actually a column, but why quibble over the little details). Then, once you add in Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and (Lord help us) Plurk—I appear to be quite the narcissist. Hmmm. One should be careful before drawing conclusions in public. Anyway---so why another freaking blog?

Well this blog serves a compartmental purpose. In the movie Dreamcatcher, several scenes take place in the main character’s brain. His mind looks much like a musty library of old—complete with boxes labeled ‘old memories’ and ‘masturbatory fantasies’. In addition, there are rows and rows of books, secret passages, and filing cabinets. That is pretty much how my brain works. Different compartments for everything. This is my fiction compartment.

I am a writer that is what I do. Everything, even the cartoons, revolve around my ability to tell a story. And that, dear readers, is what this blog will be about. I house my serious writing in the aforementioned elsewheres: and I am pleased that some of you enjoy reading and bantering with me on the content of the ‘serious’ stuff. I hope that you will be just as enthusiastic here in the land of make-believe. Truth be told, I find this land much more fulfilling than the land of health care, bailouts and partisan pissing contests. I hope you do as well. Understand that I am not leaving those other areas (I am far too opinionated for that) but I will be spending more time here than I have in the past.

Over the next few days and weeks, I will be posting some work that I hope you take the time to read and comment. I am very excited about one series that I plan to produce as a podcast (with actors and everything) and post here for your aural pleasure as you drive to and from the corporate behemoth, the place of knowledge, or just truckin' the tykes to play dates.

So, as they say in the trades, watch this space for more information.
