Draft / state details for Thinking Through Post-Task Relationships by krozruch
I use the 'only draft' designation for those texts which, whether intended from the outset or by dint of their context, are likely to remain as first-flush blog-like posts. They may be reactions to life events (many will be diary pieces), or reactions to political events where they would be unlikely to gain from redrafting or reworking. As such, they are likely to share some of the errors of first drafts as well as having something of their immediacy. To a degree, the designation as 'only draft', means that I own the mistakes contained within them, though they may be the precise kind of mistakes I am likely to make when writing something in the kind of het up state where I might open Emacs in anger and vent. Think of these, then, as being to writing as the kind of speeches your friends make when they 'go off on one'; in more reflective moments I might sound very different, but these too will say something about me because sometimes, honestly, I am full of something that might or might not at that moment feel like the 'just anger' of Ben Jonson. There will be just anger elsewhere, and might be better expressed in the pieces which may eventually make it past, lets say, a tolerably coherent v0.1.4, and there may be others, which make it through typewritten redrafts and the like, up to say something like a v0.3.1 or a v0.4.1 for something I have really struggled over. Let us remember, then, that Ben Jonson wrote his plays, so they said, like he laid bricks, always with a mind to the structure; still and all, sometimes it's fun to watch a Jack Russell barking at a garbage truck then pissing on its tyre as it humps a wheeliebin. I too have my moments.
