Me 1

LJ Idol, Week 0: Hello

Words. I try to get along with them.

I've blogged for 15 years; this month is the anniversary, in fact, of me starting this LJ. Before that, from 1997 to 2000, I got paid to write, as a writer-reporter for a weekly small town newspaper. Words and I got along well enough for that.

Thing is. Words. I try to get along with them. They seem not to mind me. Let's see if they don't mind me during LJ Idol.

My life is honestly pretty quiet. Mainly I work, wander around Portland (by foot, bus, light rail train, or car), read, work on poetry, and try to get enough water. And think of what I can write.
