By and large, I feel most creatively inspired when writing personal essays, which tend to have a lyrical (and maybe even pseudo-academic) bent.
The problem is that it often feels impossible for me to render these pieces of writing marketable in the click-click world of digital media. Hence my creating fat free balsamic—a place of freedom for me to DO WHATEVER THE FUCK I WANT.
That said, I am eager to share my published writing with you.
