Logbook

Just been doing short journal entries every night.

Monthly newsletter prepared.

To start off a new streak, I poetry-ed. I actually poetry-ed!

Drafted the ol' newsletter today.

Bummerly ended a 38-day streak yesterday. I just…forgot. On to the next one.

Wrote up day 1 and 2 of our Utah travelogue.

Started writing a travelogue of our recent trip. Not sure if it’ll be just for me, super informative/kinky for others, or storytelling. Seems least likely to be the latter.

Again! (Though this was a reimagined piece that I had already written.) Lutz

One thing I no longer do is spend a ton of time on blog posts. Years ago I decided I wanted to write essays on my site rather than blog posts. For a moment they were clever. Always edited down, down, down, but also hoping for some sort of arrival at a witty structure. Also, I stopped writing pretty quickly because that level of quality is hard to come by.

Rather than a path that leads to not writing, I'm deciding to just write quickish and let it be messy and ungreat. The goal is getting more practice. With that hopefully quality grows without growing the post-to-post time commitment. Maybe someday I'll add essays or some other more serious writing back to the mix? Maybe.
