I haven’t written for awhile. At least nothing personal. I’ve thought about. I have lots of ideas. And that’s where it stops. I pull up the web browser (do we even still use that term anymore?). I log in. I type. Delete. Type again. Delete. Fingers type. Save as a draft. I have 3 posts in draft. I just can’t get them to come together.
I’m not depressed. It’s not depression that’s keeping me from writing.
It’s quality. I want quality. I am aware that quantity will create traffic to my blog and then I could utilize advertising or sponsoring. But I need quality. I demand quality from myself.
So if the post doesn’t flow out from my thoughts, through my fingers into words and paragraphs that I can be proud of; it gets saved as a draft until I am proud of it.
Unless I do a “keeping it real” post. Then it’s what comes out, as it comes out. The only editing is spelling and grammar because quality is still important. I’m not going to pull a full out Faulkner and leave out punctuation, as much as I can appreciate true stream of consciousness writing. Although, why limit myself. Okay, make that 4 posts in drafts because one dedicated to Faulkner could be really fun.
Back to quality.
Quality takes time. I like to research. I like to give credit where credit is due, so pulling together my resources is important to me. I like to make sure I’m sharing truth, as I understand it.
Thank you for your patience. Thank you for visiting my journal. Thank you for not being critical of my writings.
