The reason I have always had trouble writing in the first person is that inserting parenthetical thoughts (like these) in the midst of a sentence is generally frowned upon in conventional writing. When speaking, I add in comments that don’t necessarily drive my point forward (I like that WordPress suggested that I link an unrelated phrase to my favorite position in basketball) if I believe they add to the effect of what I am saying (or if I simply want to say them). So I’m here to make a change and embrace the parenthetical (at least here, where if it sucks, no one knows who I am anyway).
Why did WordPress suggest that I tag this post “James T. Kirk”?
