Things I've written
I write relatively often, considering that my work tends more toward the
machine-readable end than toward the human-readable end. I wrote several
actual pieces at one time or anyother, but lately it's been mostly email,
and talking about my opinions on topics and trying to explain stuff.
Here are some of my more polished attempts:
These things I have started but are not yet ready to show:
My other literary efforts generally are not intended to be viewed as
literature, and thus would do poorly to form a list of items. They are
scattered about these pages as they are finished, or sent off to some
conversation or other. However, some writing of this type is intended never
to become polished, or is intended to be shared before being polished. This,
therefore, forms a collection of writings with no regard for an audience. I
call it /null, and leave it as a directory listing of
files by date or subject. The rules I set for myself are that I may not edit
a paragraph I've left, shall not say anything I would wish some audience not
to see, and will not pay attention to style. Read it if you wish, but
criticism and judgement are to be suspended for the duration of the
- Me Iabervon, vox: Another original lyric poem, based on one of
Catullus's less happy works. The end will not be quite as nasty as in
Catullus's, as my relationship with the subject of the poem improved
dramatically while I was still writing it.
- A lost chapter from The Sound and the Fury, by William
Faulkner: for my English class (the same one which generated The Vaults of
Montressor), I wrote an additional few pages to go in the middle of
The Sound and the Fury. These await a return from a different
computer and a different file format.
I intend eventually to have written programs which either use or produce
a significant ammount of text. If and when these are ready, I will likely
display them here.
