It was an accident at first, and then a week and a half of having this website had gone by and I noticed I had not missed a day yet. So I started doing it on purpose. And I even came up with a reason why blogging something every day was a good thing: just putting something out into the world helps me lower my perfectionism bar. Perfectionism is just procrastination wearing a fancy coat, after all, so forcing myself to put something up here every day could have the knock-on effect of helping me relax my internal editor. Help me work on my other writing projects in a more focused manner.
But today all of my ideas for things to put up here would actually take me too long to develop, and I want to use that time to…gasp…work on my short story. So please enjoy this meta-post while I am off working on fiction.
