The Blogiversary of Cormac Writes

Last Thursday was this site's First Blogiversary or birthday if you will. I have another blog that I've done everything I could to distance this one from, because they had conflicted each other and they still do. The other blog as they say, is for "shits and giggles." So when I wrote a story and posted it over there, no one wanted to read that because they were searching for the usual irreverence.

Conversely, it takes away from fiction if the posts above and below them are quite silly or just plain nuts. If I were to make an analogy of the two blogs, David Letterman and Charlie Rose can guest on each other's shows, but you won't see either of them borrowing too much from the other, stylistically-speaking.

So February 21st, 2007, I reposted all the stories that I had from that blog, up on this one, as well as other stories that used to be on a flash fiction site. My grandmother had just passed and I was looking for a way to channel the grief. I don't think there could've been a better way to do just that and I put a lot of that sadness away, right here in these pages.

I apologize because I was going to post a new story, but I am playing a rather busy game of deadline mumblety-peg and I am losing fingers left and right, as I type this.

So if you've made it this far into this post, I thank you and I thank you for your readership. Hopefully I have entertained you with what can loosely be called "writing" and I can do an even better job in the future. Either way, come on back and I'll do my best not to disappoint.

Thank you very much and anything postive is greatly appreciated here!

While I fully approve of mumblety-peg and you, I can't abide the term "shits and giggles". Having said that, I enjoy all your writing.

"Shits and giggles" used to profoundly disturb me and I found it to be about the crudest term I had ever heard (and I heard plenty of them by that time, brother!).

Now, for some reason, it just fits a certain sentiment...albeit, a very course one.
