the final word.

at first we never considered what it was, what it would be, what it could. we just felt the need, the words itching our fingertips. the loudest voice is always stretching to be heard. a quiet wisdom, anything but. we can’t remember what we wrote, that day or any other really. we just sit down log in and write.

this place is nothing but a metronome keeping time with our tide, as often a crest to breathe fire as it is a spot to weep. a place to celebrate. a place to curse our curses. a framework for randomness, it’s only point to parallel whim. to write is the act, to publish is an afterthought.
a peculiar spectacle, the guts of a life left on the table. watch it, consume, eat it up, let it breed judgment, let it breed contempt. what’s ours now yours. or so you think.

when did you get to decide what this was? what it looks like, how it sounds? conduct the pace of our prose, the taste and shape of our words as they stumble round your mouth. who says what we are, the very things we’re not enough of, except for us?

this is not a blog, it’s a blogette. the differential stands representative of our refusal to be anything but what we fucking are. our refusal to be what one (what you) might assume us to be. might assume a blog to be. we don’t cover events for the sake of an invitation. we don’t post praises in exchange for swag. we write what we write when we write it. and we’ll give you as much (or as little) as we well please.

    This is my favourite piece I've ever read here, period. Echoing the sounds of my own heart and the tiny beat attached to my pen. Loved it. Thanks.

    You rock, remind the non-humble what it is to be, and what it takes to flex the brain. You certainly make me flex mine, and thanks for that. Xoxo

    There's nothing to "get to" B&R Anon 8. If she didn't want to post so much and have her fans/readers harass her about it then she should have set the tone from the BEGINNING by NOT posting so much – duh!! So that her readers/fans didn't have THAT expectation of her. It's really not that complicated. And what's even more fucked up is that people are applaudng her post, after she just told us all to basically fuck off. Is that how you treat a consumer/reader/fan/client/customer? Get back to me in five years time and we'll see where you're at.

    so I don't get it. is the original blog entry implying that is that the end of bras and ranties foreva? Or is she just telling/asking people to back off and that she'll update the blog whenever she damn well pleases?

    i think it's to point out she doesn't have to be doing a "give-a-way" or "promotion" every sweet fucking second of the day to have readers. it's well written, and it's a style i have seen copied many times.
