About the Blob

Movie poster. Fair use.The Blob (blog, to you, mister) is the place where we post items of interest and curiosity.

The Updates section has news about Slow Sand Writers Society.

Lit news is occasional commentary on stuff we find around the web.

The film The Blob, as those of a certain age will recall, featured Steve McQueen in his first starring role. Yes, it was indescribable and indestructible and nothing has stopped the popularity of this cult film.

Just as a gigantic amoeba terrorized a small town in The Blob, the idea of blogging terrorizes many of us in the group Slow Sanders.

Alas, nothing can stop it. Blogging has taken over the digital universe. Therefore Slow Sand Writers Society does not have a blog. It has a blob. And although we will post here, we vow not to be completely distracted from our “real” writing, but to use this forum as yet another tool in our procrastination chest of tricks.
