This is a form of a pledge, thankfully not a binding contract, that I will write at least once a week, every week, for the remainder of the year. I believe I’m selling myself short and can handle the Post a Day, but to avoid my usually unachievable expectations, I will start humble. I can upgrade if and when I’m ready and trust my ability to articulate, even if poorly at times.
I hope hundreds of people are signing up for this. I don’t want to be the only one in my circle of peers that is so motivated to keep up a discipline that I consider exciting. In other words, geek. Yet if I am the only one, so be it. Nerds are cool.
I hope the level of quality doesn’t suffer because I might end up lazily trying to reach a quota. If there’s no heart to the projects we take on, let there at least be mind until the heart catches up. There are many habits we pick up excitedly and then let them lose their new-toy luster. Writing should not be one of them since it’s a most personally enhancing experience. Let there be no awkward silences. The only reason for our writing and posts to dwindle is if lose our motivation to life and experience, in which we should take adopt the mission to be inspired. If we don’t see ourselves out there, well then, explore yourself until you can include the world in your narrative.
Self-made pep talk. Thank you very much.
