I was on another blog t'other day and it was a "writer's" blog. That is to say, the author was using her blog as a sounding board for snippets of writing, character development, that sort of thing. I don't think a blog is the perfect thing for that since one rarely gets truly critical feedback, but because of the archival nature of blogger, it is useful to organize these things, rather like filing recipes. This archival nature is what distinguishes the web log from the ICQ, or any facebook style social networking site.
What little writing I have done, I believe should follow certain laid down paths...build an outline, creating the introduction, develop the back story, create conflict, resolution and a satisfactory denoument. Then of course, as Mozart said, all thats left is scribbling! Blogs, of course, are none of the above!
I have used, and shall continue to use my blogs as places to tell jokes, rant, and discuss armour making. All in a manner reminiscient of filing recipes, or maybe, scrap booking. And the world shall continue to be etched onto this blog! I shall continue to resist what my friend called "crack book".
