I'm beginning on this and establishing goals. This will be a gradual process.
A break was required, in more senses than one.
I believe in excusing myself from the broader conversation.
I believe I can still contribute.
The Work will be less slapdash, immediate fugue, my preferred mode, and more constructed.
I surrender a lot to this ambition, urgency and impact above all, but anything gained will balance.
There is a middle ground between the aficionado and a professionally published standard. It's an important one which I'll be striving to meet, falling short often but hopefully succeeding in exceeding at times.
Support is appreciated but I have little to offer. I'll do my best to be worthy of it, that's all I can promise.
I will do my best to know my worth, although for now I can only say to anyone interested that I come cheap.
Swamp Witch is coming.
