When I challenged myself to write five blog posts under 500 words, I silently promised myself that I wouldn’t make a thing out of writing about or discussing it. Writing about writing about writing seemed a bit excessive. But, it’s almost been a month now and I realize I haven’t posted anything since early November. It seems that I have intimidated myself with my own challenge…! Ha.
Though the past month has kept me pretty busy otherwise, my blogging inactivity isn’t for lack of interest or inspiration. I have tons of thoughts and ideas that I’d like to put on paper (or the internet). Somehow in the last thirty days, this intention has managed to remain just that: an intention.
If you know me personally, it probably won’t come as a shock to you that the proposal to condense down is what has, ironically, caused me a temporary case of writer’s block. To be fair, I think the act of paring down is a challenge for many – if not most – people, and I won’t bother to beat myself up about it.
I’m working on being more impeccable with my words in general, so here I continue. Though the word impeccable certainly sounds like a tall order, so I’ll go with the more casual goal to simply … Simplify.
Ah, that’s better 😉
