I started this blog with noble intentions, which I still have, but looking at the date of my last post I am embarrassed by my commitment to it. It’s not that I’ve lost interest, it’s more a case of very bad imposter syndrome that came over me and particularly my writing style. But as with everything I should see this as practise. The only way to get better is to write more and write regularly, otherwise you get out of shape. That’s the same with reading, exercising, meditating or anything else. The book, Writer’s Home Companion: An Anthology of the World’s Best Writing Advice, From Keats to Kunitz by Joan Bolker , the author makes the same argument and suggest writing exercises by using cues. Or just even writing randomly for a set time each day about anything that comes up in your mind. So this post is a little commitment to myself to just write. No matter how bad, or how random, I just need to write.
Ps. I also write in everything directly in vim without any fancy spell or grammar checker, that kind of makes this a very raw read in a sense.
