OK, this is probably a bad idea. I used to have a diary on my web page several years ago, but I wasted half an hour a day writing it and usually nobody read it but me. I took it down after a client mentioned something I'd written about doing when I was supposed to be working on his (overdue) project. So I don't expect to be posting regular entries talking about what I'm getting up to. Another problem is that I'm trying to write Science Fiction in my spare time, and I've already got enough ways to procrastinate (mailing lists, RSS, newsgroups, etc.) without adding another. But when I went to the Worldcon this year, I was amazed by how many fans and authors have LiveJournal accounts. So I've decided to join up just to see what the fuss is about, and so that I can comment non-anonymously. I would have preferred the username "alexholden" but unfortunately somebody already used that to create a fake account about the actress Alexandra Holden.
