So, the three or four of you who read this with any regularity may have noticed that my output has slowed considerably in the last month or so. That is because I am both out of ideas and generally discouraged by my ignorance of the subject matter I do write about, and by my lack of talent. My whole idea in starting this blog was that I would create a safe space for me to suck at writing while I gained practice and honed my skills, but the way I see it, my writing, somewhat paradoxically, has only gotten worse in the past few months. I’ve been second guessing every single fucking word and every single fucking topic and every single stupid, terrible argument and conclusion I’ve been trying to put forward, and that’s enervating and frustrating and just a real fucking drag.
Trying to write anything lately has been a real chore and yielded nothing positive, tangible or intangible. To borrow a phrase, quitters never win, and winners never quit, but those who never win and never quit are delusional. Therefore, I’m stepping away from doing this indefinitely. Irregular posts may show up from time to time, but regular posting will resume if and only if I feel like it.
Thank you to everyone who has read and supported this blog. It means a lot to me, and I will always be grateful for your support.
Catch ya later…
