Posts that relate to my de-posting (reserving) entries in Ana Verse, past and present:

"Housekeeping," July 16, 2007:

"Writing in the Open," November 4, 2008:

Excerpt (slightly revised):

 My reasons when I de-post:
  1. Exigencies of print and online publication in journals and books
  2. Distinction between self- and other publishing where other-publishing offers more esteem, privacy, and closure, closure in more than one sense: Internet self-publishing is more like hiding in the open than underground print publishing -- print books and journals must be special-ordered or purchased at readings and book fairs and are more difficult to access
  3. A quest for writing in privacy
  4. Fear of revealing too much personal information
  5. Hesitancy to identify people except in a formal way
  6. Self-censorship of other types (in particular, feminism and depression as themes)
  7. Job seeking regardless of type of job
  8. Timing and placement with regard to other posts
  9. Other aesthetic considerations
  10. Proprietary guardianship of writing as work
