Quel (H)Auteur

I was amused to find that a publishing aggregator had somehow discovered a textbook I wrote years ago and that I'm now listed on the net as an "Auteur".

Really, everybody should write, if only to pass the time.
Virginia Woolf, when she visited Ireland, expressed bewilderment at the fact that every Irish person was not a novelist. Storytelling and communication is what we spend our time at, and looking at the climate, that is understandable. A visitor from Spain thought the way many of us lived here was the equivalent of an 18th Century lifestyle. Indoors playing instruments, drinking our heads off and (more recently) blogging...

"Just like Beehoven", was his summary.

(A nice piece in today's Title Bar about why journalists should blog.)
