I'm a writer who wants a outlet that is both anonymous and public if that makes any sense. So I'll be a little skimpy on the details here--but I hope not frustratingly so in my entries. Why anonymous? Well, I'm pretty appalled by the public flame wars I've seen elsewhere (especially between exes) on LiveJournal and equally amused and appalled by the fact that I just keep reading--even though most of what is written here isn't exactly literary. I think more writers should put reasoned, real journals here as sort of a living piece of history--like (the pseudonymous) Salam Pax's blog from Baghdad--especially in these times when so few media sources seem capable of telling simple truths even when they happen within our own borders.
