I missed when I was writing regularly (once a week in 2021, hey), and I realize I’m putting undue pressure on myself to write something that is quality.
Which is silly, because:
- This site has a readership of 1 (me)
- There are no rules to what this personal space I’m carving out with my words holds
- Everything goes back to me stressing myself out, as if that is my hobby
I remember telling some friends that some books should remain as TED Talks instead of the fluffed-up books they become, and that holds true for what I’m doing here as well.
So maybe, instead of trying to start and continue long-form articles, I’m going to wean myself back into the habit of just letting the words flow. At least it’s good practice for when I have to write something long, like admissions essays.
But more on that another time.
