Note to self: More levity. Less worry. Stop being so meta and just make stuff, not making stuff about making stuff. That sucks.

Lengthier writing is hard, because it requires one to commit to it. One must be alone. One can not write in a group. One must step away, shut off the world. What do I think? How do I feel? What is this itch? How can I scratch it? Why am I sad? Why did this make me happy? What’s it like being a father? Why did that project work? What did I learn?

Writing is chasing a question—an inquiry of the mind. Forward is better than every direction at once. It’s not really writing until you feel something; until you choke up at a thought, until you start fidgeting in your seat in excitement, until you feel the twinge of pain that happens when a thorn is pulled out of your side. Go back. Delete everything before you started fedgeting or crying of deflating like a balloon. Then, write some more.
Go write.
