Having posted yesterday’s introduction, and having had the day to think about it, it occurred to me that the obvious choice of subject matter to write about would be the one I’m most obsessed with, music.
After further reflection however, I have decided that this may lead to a certain level of subjective preachiness. I mean, I’m all for
forcing people to listen to inviting people to have the opportunity to listen to a rare David Devant and his Spirit Wife CD, the latest Ninja Tune compilation, or the live All Tomorrow’s Parties set by Venetian Snares, but I can’t stand to see so many frozen smiles and surreptitious glances at watches.
The result of all this cogitation is that I have decided I shall need to follow the Growing up in Public method, and practice my writing with
an audience the potential for an audience.
Now, even I have to admit, the thought of reading a blog composed of the literary indecision of it’s writer wouldn’t fill me with much enthusiasm, so I will endeavour to make this a rapid learning curve.
It is beginning to feel good though, using the of parts of the brain that usually sit at the back throwing things, to do some work for a change.
Hope these don’t cause too many frozen grins.
