There is something that intimidates me about writing, and the intimidation compounds the longer I don’t do it. Even so, I was surprised to see that my last update was before summer started, it now being long gone. I opened up the blog just now in an attempt to get something – anything – down, to allay some of the intimidation. I have found that taking baby steps in pursuing the various interests in my life has really helped me with the follow through.
Ideally, I would like to write a short piece every day. The content would not have to be mind-blowing. It would more be a habit forming activity so that when true inspiration does hit I am not too self-repressed to get it down. I’ve really taken the Aristotelian quote “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” to heart over the past year or so. It has helped me in other arenas – hopefully it can here as well.
