The things you do when LJ's down

and you can't access your flist. I've been going through my filing cabinet, plus an old cupboard which is piled full of previous years' tax returns, old house plans, etc - the sort of miscellanea that gets thrust into darkness but never thrown out, just in case. Anyway, I rediscovered a folder full of stuff I wrote in the early 80s and promptly forgot about. And for the most part, that's a good thing. It's mainly awkward, self-conscious stuff, done for a creative writing class, plus an embarrassingly awful MarySue or two that I should burn but I just can't bring myself to do it. Like killing cane toads; I know they're ugly, they serve no useful purpose, and they're poisonous, but I feel really sorry for them getting such a bad rap and I live my life around them. I don't want to SEE them but I don't have it in me to do anything about them. That's exactly how I feel about these bastard literary children of mine. They're horrible and should die in a fire but I just can't do it.
