What are yours?
(I’ll tell you mine if you…)
It’s all too easy for me to assume that by posting (or not posting) I fulfill some kind of quota. And sometimes a quota is what you need. Merlin Mann sometimes says that what you need to do is “sit down at the keyboard and make the clicking sound.” I’ve heard others say that if you show up, so will the muse.
Mostly, I think it’s about creating rhythm, and figuring out how that aligns with what the world needs from you. That’s what I’m finding my way to.
And, man, do my expectations get in the way1.
I’d hate to tell you how many different words were scrapped on the way to this quote fulfillment.↩︎
