I have been saying This Is Not a Blog for over a year now, but I have never been able to say, "It is this."
The impulse for this Discourse is my continued search for that answer. I still don't have it. I asked myself, "What if it were a story (or series of stories) unfolding?" That got me closer. Yes, serializing is part of what I'm doing. But just a part. It's incomplete.
