Writing is hard work [Mar. 13th, 2012|08:18 am]
Tomas Gallucci

I tossed and turned last night, but I feel rested. At 0500 I could no longer stand it. I got up and attempted to write.

I got two paragraphs out.

The problem is that I want to write columns as thorough and rich as Predicting iTV.

That column wasn't difficult to write, though I did have to strengthen my resolve a couple of times during composition. The flow was spectacular; I have been stewing on that train of thought for months. I have other topics to compliment that piece, but they need the appropriate stewing. I'm just not at the bursting point yet.

But I do want to get back in the habit of writing. I don't need to let that skill atrophy. And it should be kept in mind that we make time for the things we want to do. My concern is that in making time for writing that I don't suffer major consequences over the things From which I deallocate time.

Here's a suggestion, keep writing little bits like this all the time, and then keep stewing over bigger pieces so that when you do write long columns, you are used to writing in a everyday basis so it's not so difficult. :)

I was thinking about always writing notes every day until I had something worth releasing, much like one would do with software. I've never been happy with small bullshit posts like this one, and if I just want to share links/news stories with potentially a sentence or two of description, I'd rather use Tumblr, but that gets me stuck in the endless loop of where to put what where.

I need to come up with a solution soon because I'm tired of thinking about the problem. I want to be more like asymco.com: timely, well-thoghts out analysis.
