LINK: A Better Writer Than I

There's a poem which we read at school; embarrassingly, its name and/or author escapes me now, but basically it was in praise of a dictionary, saying that there is little that the author could say because every word he might use was in the dictionary already. All books, I seem to remember he said, were dwarfed when placed next to the dictionary.

It's not quite that extreme, but I feel a slightly sense of threat, that I (and many others) might rapidly be outclassed and out-talented in the blogging stakes by the fact that Stephen Fry has recently started blogging.

So far he's posted two long essays, and I hope he gets the time to post more...
