It’s been awhile since I’ve consistently posted here. And, I’ve missed it… missed connecting with others, missed writing.
So, in the new year spirit of starting fresh, I plan to write every weekday in January. A lofty goal perhaps, especially given our new (demanding) puppy and scheduled training again. But, it’s one I look forward to. Posts likely won’t be long, but novels aren’t the point (and if I’ve learned anything at my new copywriting gig it’s that writing for the web is best when it’s concise + clear).
The point is to write. About anything and everything. My writing’s felt stagnant lately, so by making writing a daily practice, I hope it grows and improves – benefiting both this space and my professional copywriting.
As Herbert Lui says in this Medium article on why quantity trumps quality (and leads to higher quality):
The best way to refine your craft is to create a huge volume of work. Not to create the most perfect piece you can, but to create many pieces of work.
And, whether your craft is writing, painting or triathlon, the more you practice it – consistently – the better it will likely be. Here’s to a month of writing!
