Okay, the time has come to abandon this project for now. I wrote one more page but then my life drifted into babysitting, playing music, being ill and all sorts of things that are incompatible with the singlemindedeness essential to being a writer of anything on a large scale.
I can write small pieces, poetry and the like, that much I know but at least until I retire from my job as a faceless bureaucrat, I am not going to have the space to write the major pieces I need to write. And for the time being, I just don't have the ruthlessness.
I'll leave this up here as a monument to the futility, nay hubris, of my ambition but for now this particular blog is over. I'm sorry if anyone hoped to see it finished.
