about - long . linesandripples . com

This site is a spot for thinking to get off the ground, to host lengthy writing at the beginning stages of formation‚Äďanything still provisional and in its indefinite period of drafting. There are many advantages to producing for no particular reason, for no single audience, with no constraint that determines what a piece of writing becomes. Every writer needs a place for strange things, for pieces which are allowed to fail. This gives him a chance to surprise himself and to enjoy real intellectual freedom, one of the most powerful incentives to keep going.
