Perfectionism or cowardice?

August 22nd, 2005

For some reason it seems I have a hard time writing normal, spontaneous and down-to-earth posts. Everything I write tends to be too "polished", too much like some kind of official document. I don't know why exactly. It might be the case that I think that everything I publish must be perfect or it will not be interesting (although it most likely is the other way around), or simply because I'm too much of a coward to write about the less-than-perfect (i.e. just about any) parts of my life.

To solve this, I'm trying to adopt (not too strict) speed writing. Just keep writing, and don't care about if the things you write are good or not. Just let it out. (Ouch, I'm sounding like a therapist now, don't I?). So… I wonder if it will affect my writing. Hopefully it will change it for the better. Let me know what you think. You don't have to write a "oh, you're so good" comment right now, but think about it when you read my posts further on and comment on it sometime in the future when I've forgotten all about it.
