I’m not sure how much I like the colloquial nature of Summing-Up. I like writing the posts, but I’m not sure how much I like the post content. I had a lot of lofty ideas back when I started this blog—really limited post lengths, lots of quippy anecdotes, cat poems. I really thought I’d eventually give up and magically write a cat poem. I hate how hard it is to write a poem. It’s like anything else, you immerse yourself in it until you can do it, but it’s a lot of immersion for me. Not worth it. The cats are cute enough for Instagram, after all. But I don’t have any direction for the site. It’s almost so journal I want to exaggerate it but I don’t think I’d like writing an absurd first-person account of writing an absurd first-person account. I don’t like writing in first person for creative work. Maybe I’ll do something crazy and try to write with author as narrator after I read all this Maugham but I don’t know. I only thought of doing the Maugham because I already had the site name and it seemed like it might be fun to read The Summing Up finally.
