But sometimes it's the only way to get things done.
I've been on the fence about writing for awhile now. Lots of backstory (read: I have issues, some of the same as any writer (Dad says writing "isn't a career" and was generally unsupportive), some that go a bit deeper into the psyche).
In any case, I've been doing a lot of personal reflection and work with a therapist over the last several years. Finally, I'm at a point where I can handle all the voices in my head well enough to tell them to take a hike.
I'm lining up some writing projects for myself:
- A couple of articles for WordPress developers (likely applicable to generalists too). One on project management, one on an undecided topic.
- A couple of book reviews (one on the first two books of Brent Weeks's Lightbringer series, another on an ARC of Jon Sprunk's new book).
- A short story that's been burbling in my head off and on for four years. Writing and sending it as my application to Viable Paradise.
- General writing goal of doing some writing every day.
