This is a Blog, After All

I’m not sure why I decided to stop, but I hereby give myself permission to write things again in 2013.

I can’t free myself from the agony of knowing that I’ll hate what I did immediately after doing it or that I’ll feel embarrassed by it looking back one day, but I can recognize that these feelings are the result of caring for what I do and wanting to be better, and I can remember that I’ll never get better if I don’t write tens of thousands more words, millions more words, piles and piles of words, some of which will go totally unnoticed and that’s okay too.

I can fail if I write, but I will have failed if I don’t.
