I'M FOUND OUT!...so I may as well share more...

My secret's out. Okee is no longer in hiding.

My family knows I have a blog. They know it's this one. They know.

And they could be reading these words at this moment. Well, there's only one thing to say:

HI FAMILY!!! I LOOOOVE Y"ALL!!!
-----------------------------

Okay, that's that! I don't think the knowledge that close family members may read this affects what I write. I wouldn't want to write anything, um, unsuitable for family consumption. No, no, that's very much not my intention. As I said in a previous blog, though, this blog is MINE. All mine. Heh heh. And I can say anyyyything I want. Again, heh heh. Cue the evil music. Do-doo-dooo-do---do-doo-dooo-do...

However, I want to say good things, nice things, happy things. And, upon occasion, some things that might not be good/nice/happy but will enable me to reach good/nice/happy.

So to further this delightful aim, I am baring my soul-yes, baring my soul, people- and sharing with the world my lofty, literary attempts. In a separate blog (www.eekoiswrite.blogspot.com), which I will link to, I will post a chapter every so often for public enjoyment and critical analysis. Please comment. Good, bad, constructive or kvetching, whatever. Thank you. But don't tell me to stop. Cause I won't. Well, I might, but it'll be because of writer's block, procrastination, or just plain being to busy.

Busy with what?- you ask slyly.
Get your mind off shidduchim, will you? I'm busy with life! Busy with, um....
Busy with my summer of....learning in Israel? in America? working? earning? hanging? traveling? Er, I don't have a clue what I'll be doing two weeks from now, much less....three weeks from now!

Enjoy the reading! (Warning: The book is fiction, thematically "judaic", not formulaically so, and veeeery tongue in cheek. Thought you should know:)

How did that happen...?
Is it liberating to be have been outed??

you wouldn't believe me if I told you!...and yeah, in some sense, it is. Before my family had to be forced to read my "literary work", and now my mothers says, "Okee, show me your blog."

Well it's a good blog so I guess that's fine.
So what does "formulaically" mean and how is it different than thematically?

Okee said...

the book -so far- contains jewish themes, but it definitely doesn't fit into the genre -or, dare I say, formula- of a classic "jewish novel"
