why i don't capitalize my name or pronouns

i don't capitalize my name or the pronoun "i" when referring to myself because i feel that over-emphasizes the significance of the writer. i want my writing to be able to speak for itself, the ideas i present are more important than the person writing them. i understand that even putting a name on anything then, is rather hypocritical, but it is, i believe necessary if i ever want to be heard. i suppose this is just my small statement regarding bigger things.



I think the best thing about making it into the quote generator is when nobody tells you, so one day you're just scrolling and voila, some phenomenally inane thing that crawled out of your dying synapses and immediately regretted being born the second it made contact with the air has been archived for all time. Or worse, a remark of only average inanity. Never tell me when you've put me in the generator. Pride-tinged regret just doesn't taste the same without the spice of surprise.
