drafts of posts are starting to pile up in my box. i know why. it’s a complicated thing, but then again it’s very simple. i am striving for perfection which almost never comes to pass. and while i am crafting this thing for human consumption i am stricken by the most paralyzing procrastination which is tied into my need to be validated by compliments and positive strokes.
but, let’s face it, this almost never happens. people are too busy, there are niche blogs of specific interest, blogs written by authors of exquisite eloquence and all manner of distraction and shiny, baubly things. so when i toss my 2 cents out into the void i don’t fret about it too much once i’ve hit the “publish” button. because then i’ve committed to it finally being done. i’ve finished it. besides, if i suffer from some sort of writers’ remose i can always claw it back and throw it into my virtual garbage can.
so why agonize so over verbiage and words that most people will never read? that’s me. that’s just me being me. i gotta stop that. a few words are better than none. in the same way a few squats and a walk around the block is better than staying on the couch. so here you go, another couple cents from me.
