This is my first blog entry.

Hello.

I’ve created this blog for myself really, as a way of making some sense of the jumble of thoughts that passes as my brain. I may already be overreaching.

The “goddess of clarity” moniker stems from my days as an editor and technical writer, when I garnered a reputation for taking the mumbo-jumbo of technical specifications and training manuals and condensing it into simple—some might even say elegant—prose.

But as a result of so much time spent editing and clarifying other people’s ideas, I never had to bother much about expressing any of my own. That’s where this blog comes in.

Rather than tearing down the hard work of others, it’s time to put myself on the line for a change. To create rather than destroy. To use my powers for good, never for evil. With great power comes great responsibility!

Like I said, I may be overreaching.
