Okay, the rules don’t work.

January 15, 2010

Specifically, rule three as stated in my “about me” section.

. I will put forth a competent product and will withhold submission of my writing until I have reached a satisfactory level of quality. That said, I reserve the right to modify and improve my works as I see fit.

At this point, I have almost a month between this and my last post. Obviously, my concept of a competent product is beyond my ability to produce on a regular basis. Given that, I’m going to change the rule to the following:

I will put forth the most competent product I can with the constraint that I still produce a submission on a regular basis. This is not entirely getting rid of the “quality” aspect of my writing – merely setting it as a goal rather than a limiting factor.

With any luck, this will get me back into writing.


Neither should you fret too much about ‘writer’s block’. If you’re looking at a blank piece of paper and nothing comes to you, then go do something else. Writer’s block is just a symptom of feeling like you have nothing to say, combined with the rather weird idea that you SHOULD feel the need to say something.
