I find that when I write something I’m not really proud of, I usually write a lot more posts to bury my crappy post as fast as I can. But if I write something I think is pretty good, it’s a lot harder to follow. I end up worrying about what to write next and it usually screws up the flow of things.
The big irony in all this is that I guess I should be more excited when I write something terrible, because it means I just might push myself to try something or learn something I wouldn’t if I felt like the stakes are a little bit higher.
The funny thing about screwing up is that almost anything that follows will probably feel like a success.
