Holding My Breath Until I Turn Blue?

No, just going back to being a Democrat now that April Fool's Day is over. The only thing I was serious about yesterday was that I do want to keep the domain since I still use the name Anonymous Is A Woman. Every once in a while I'll Google just to see what's going on, and I've noticed that somebody else is using the same name on eBay and another person on YouTube. I promise you that they are not me. I don't bid on eBay and I don't have a site on YouTube. I also don't have a copyright on the name Anonymous Is A Woman, which is actually a famous quote frequently attributed to Virginia Wolfe. Nevertheless, I would like to hold onto the name and this domain.

On the other hand, I really did write a
guest post on Bearing Drift, which is what Jim Hoeft was referring to in the comments section yesterday. It grew out of a few emails that we sent back and forth and Jim very graciously invited me to do so. I don't want to embarrass him but he's a good guy.

Nevertheless, if I never complete my novel and win a Pulitzer Prize, I can now always blame him for distracting me from my true calling. The truth, though, is that I seem to have gotten to page 58 before writer's block set in. Which could be just as well since one of my characters was a reincarnation of Torquemada. I promise you that you really don't want to know.

But I actually did write one short story that may even be readable. It's posted here. And I also wrote a personal essay on suffering and faith here.

To post comments on that site, I think you have to sign up, so if you don't want to go through that rigamarole, don't worry about it. If you're interested, just click on the links and enjoy reading "what I did on my winter vacation" when I abandoned blogging.

And I'll be back in a few months, unless the spirit moves me sooner :)
