Writing more this year

One of my goals this year is to write more regularly. I often start writing something to post and end up discarding it after a paragraph or two. What stops me is a combination of I can’t write this as well as what someone else has already said and I am not going to reach the idiots I am castigating and Christ, this is a lot of research and editing to make this perfect and I wouldn’t want to read about my boring life. Plus a few more pieces of reasoning. All of these are only partially valid.

But the drawback is that all this crap rattles around in my brain anyway and if I don’t write about it, I’m going to steer my personal conversations around so I can say it anyway. Also, it’s nice to have a personal chronicle (i.e., journal) cause my memory is crapola and I am much more successful at that when it’s online.

And no one else has to read this if I’m not as eloquent as others, am preaching to the wrong people, I write something not particularly well back up, if it’s boring, or whatever else.

I don’t promise something daily, but that’s my loose goal. They’ll be spread out between the blog, LJ-only (probably fairly infrequent), and the book blog.

I frequently think "gads, if somebody else wrote a post this long I wouldn't read it" but that doesn't stop me from posting. ;>

I used to write a ton more. If you check my LJ archives, I posted 3 and 4 times a day back in 2002 to 2005. Mostly short entries, but occasionally long screeds. I want to be doing that again.
