Jason Grote's latest post

The best thing about the blogosphere isn't, to me, Octoroon-type shenanigans. It's posts like this one: posts that speak to the very real life of a writer. Jason Grote writes very openly and honestly. I think intimate thoughts like these, shared publicly, deserve not only to be read, but reflected upon.

And you can always count on the insightful reflections of the Japanese Spam Artist:

Electronic folds
Will go brazenly unread.
Bad origami.

Ah, the life of a writer. My full in-the-same-boat empathy to Grote.

Jason Grote said...

Thanks, Matt and Aaron. I'm glad I didn't delete the blog -- it makes for nice venting every now and then.

Jason Grote said...

Also, not to be pedantic, but I think that's Chinese.

Freeman said...

Whatever it is, it's beautiful.

It's hard to tell, being that Japanese uses kanji, too. In retrospect, the lack of any hiragana or katakana should have hinted at this being Chinese.

But yeah, spam is a lot prettier when you can't tell that it's spam.

I only know because that's where all my spam comes from.
