I understand the importance of writing on a regular basis. It sharpens the skills, builds strength, develops confidence, and nurtures consistency…like hula hooping or having sex standing up or drinking (except for the sharpening skills part…unless your skill is getting drunk). The point is that there is something to be said for frequent practice. There is something to be said about quantity and just putting in time racking up big numbers. And that something to be said is that it sucks.
But it works. And for that reason, I’m going to strengthen my writing by attempting to write one or two new posts per week here on my blog. I created an account at Plinky so that I could receive a list of writing prompts via email as a way of kick starting the writing process.
Part of the thing about writing this much is to not censor myself because I know all of you are reading my words. I need to write like no one’s watching. So the best thing for me to do is to pretend you all don’t exist for a while.
There. That’s better.
