Trying out the WordPress app for iPad

This is a content-free entry. Feel free to ignore it.
But I’m finding this app to be, well, more friendly for posting than the WordPress site itself.
Now — back to writing. Or tonight, eating. Slow-cooked beef ribs, polenta and roasted broccoli.
Control your envy.


Are you actually ‘writing’ ?

I guess it’s time to mention that wasting time is a matter of discipline: “Is this research, or pud-pullng?” *

You know, writers aren’t forced to waste time, but we must be aware of the difference between actual research and plain old entertainment. We must also be alert for a terrifying realization that goes something like this: “Jeebus, this arcane essay about Hamilton’s hat size is so much more interesting than my own story!” At which point that writer might want to reassess his commitment to the craft.

So Yes, reading up on hemp-growing by the Founding Fathers (a hot topic these days on the history sites) might be research. But, well, you know what I mean.
