I have decided that I will post things here as often as I can. As I’ve said a few times in the few posts I’ve written, and that hopefully you’ve read, I have multiple writing projects going on at the moment. When I come up with something that I think has the potential to be an enjoyable, informative or impactful read, I will stick it to the front page of the site for an undetermined amount of time, probably until I realize that my writing is tripe, or the topic becomes outdated or the information becomes obsolete.
I will try to make the pages and posts here make sense – with blog posts just going up as they come and discrete works on their own pages. I will put some short stories up as I write them. Some will be complete and some will be fragments. Some will be good and some will be not-good. They are all here for your pleasure, and some may even have ribs!
I am still in the process of defining this site’s identity, so don’t be surprised if you come back and the site looks completely different, everything will still be here and work essentially the very same, it just may be a different color or in a different spot. Please be patient with me during this time.
You, dear reader, are absolutely more than welcome to provide me with any feedback; questions or comments or concerns or complaints at any time. In fact I invite you to do so, things are always more enjoyable when you have someone to share the experience with, and nobody likes putting themselves out there without receiving anything in return. That is largely why social media has come to dominate people’s lives, the instant gratification, attention, validation and distraction is a dangerous drug that can lead to real life consequences if one isn’t responsible. I do not intend to lecture you all about over-using social media, at least not with this post, so I’ll get off it.
Thank you! May the force be with you always,
Hector van der Merwe
