I’ve grown unaccustomed to writing for myself. Every word I write, and and every word I revise, is written with an audience in mind. At work, every word is carefully calculated to inform or influence. Each email, personal and professional, is crafted for the person with whom I wish to communicate. Each blog post is filtered for public consumption. I wonder…. is there a point in only writing for ones’ self anymore?

What are you going to do about the stuff you want to remember and you don’t want anybody elese to know?
Not that I can keep a diary worth beans, but still.

Yes, there is
When you write something for yourself and then publish it – and not write something fit for publishing in process of writing – you open yourself up to the public, as you are.
and, of course, there are diaries.
In any case point is in sincerety and a bit of primordial Chaos, your own touch.
