Daily paragraph (¶ q. d.), anti-ultimate edition

March 3, 2010

For a variety of reasons (mental health) I feel the need to write more, yet I never find the time.  I also tend to write like an academic, which is teh greatest, except in the rare event that people try to read my writings in less than 3 hours.  Anyhow, I’m piloting a new idea.[NB: piloting? really?]  I *hope* to write a short bit each day, about the types of things that I’d normally blog about, were I to actually have time.  This’ll allow me a certain amount of therapy, while also keeping a record of totally. awesome. stuff. I might expand upon in the future.

Here is a guideline, broken into three clauses so as to appear profound and mystical:

1) I should keep it to a paragraph

2) under 250 words

3) that I write in under 15 minutes.

Corollary A) These are guidelines, damnit… including the daily bit.

Corollary B) Lars von Trier bites.

    thanks for the inspiration, Kate. I’ve been trying to write more too. First I needed to solve the computer v. pen/paper dilemma. I think better with a pen. So I got some new pens that won’t activate de quervain’s so quickly. And I learned I can write for about 20 minutes before my hand starts seizing up. That’s kind of perfect amount of time, right? And then I decided that for every assignment I give my students, I’m going to write something for myself. So far this semester I’ve managed to do that once, while my students have been writing weekly. Well, it’s a start.
