You're at inadequate.net, the longtime home of William O. Pate II's online journal, an examination of free will. The site has recently been expanded to include all William's various projects: writing, publishing, playlists, design and more!
New stuff around.
I seriously thought I was finished editing the San Antonio Review's second issue, but, after reviewing the proof, I needed to correct one typo. Ends up, I made another round of massive edits to the issue.
The most personal change is deleting my essay on student loan debt. I felt it was far too long (and self-indulgent) to publish. Removing it and adding in a couple of others' pieces (a different essay and a couple of other poems) cut the issue down by ten pages, which allows me to financially afford printing a first-run of more than 100 copies. The more I can print at a time, the more I can distribute for free, the more people will get to read it.
At this rate, the issue should be available physically next week.
In other news, I was looking forward to seeing Flora & Fawna play at Stubb's last night, but we walked out and forgot our keys. By the time the locksmith arrived, I was hot, tired, hungry, out $105 ($100 to locksmith, $5 to RideAustin for cancelling our ride) and had a headache, so we stayed home. To make up for it, though, I immediately purchased tickets to Stereolab's sold-out show in Austin next week. :)
Tonight, we're supposed to meet up with a friend from college I haven't seen in years for her boyfriend's birthday. Let's hope I'm not socially awkward!
As for this site, I've been neglecting it while focusing on putting SAR to bed. I have updates. They're coming.
