Something about this weblog format just ain’t right for me; it lets me be lazy and not explain things and not take the time to really burrow down to what I’m trying to say. For example, my intro to a Jonathan Franzen quote, two entries below this one: “This quote, at least, I know I marked because it was sort of a lowering of expectations for writers, which gave me a little kick of optimism.” That’s not even true. I didn’t feel like that quote was a lowering expectation for writers. I felt like it was a clarifying of purpose and a relief, because so many times you’re told that only the professional professional professional has any value.
