Creative Writing

I once heard a creative writing professor say that one should never explain one's writing. I generally agree with that. However, I now feel compelled to say that 98% of the writings listed on this page are very rough drafts. That begs a question of course: Why put such unfinished work on the web? Honestly? Laziness. It's pure laziness. It's easier to find a story or stray sentence on this site than it is to hunt through my notebooks. Ah, the power of databases! So, forgive the rough edges, and please keep in mind that constructive criticism is always welcomed and appreciated.
