Uncharted Territory

Dear Friends and Fans,

There is something oddly disturbing by this ego on display, known as a personal blog. I am quick to think back to Stoker's Dracula and the Count's reaction to find Harker looking into a mirror. Dracula smashes the glass calling it the, "Object of human vanity." I don't disagree.

I think many with blogs pour their hearts and prose out with the misunderstanding that anyone cares. I'm not under that illusion.

Yet a friend who has a blog that serves and supports Southern writers (DewontheKudzu) was kind enough to say something nice about Dead Weight. She is also kind enough to push me towards that uncomfortable world of personal openness. For that Kinah, thank you, I think.
