in general

I’ve been reading listening to “Bird by Bird” by Anne Lamott and two things stuck out – one, I didn’t know Anne Lamott is funny, and by extension, that this book is funny. Two, I love that Anne calls the very first draft of what writers write as “shitty first drafts”. I love it not because I write shitty first drafts and then better second drafts, but because I only write shitty first drafts, and then hit publish. That’s the glory of blogging. Sure, you can write, rewrite, edit, perfect. Or you can just fire off a missive into the ether and care or not that someone reads it. I know this is yet more navel-gazing re: blogging, but it’s the kind I enjoy the most. 🙂
