Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. — Jim Ryun
Today’s web wander took me to the Wayback Machine and my old blog posts. Luckily there was nothing that shouldn’t be forever archived and that I have to worry about.
The few posts I have published since 2013 pale in comparison with how many there were until around 2009 when updates to the blog became less regular.
Before the slump I managed to enjoy writing without embarrassing myself. So I am tempted to restart the habit but also realise that my life is much less exciting these days, even after discounting COVID-19 making most our lives bland.
One archived post links to a written piece that I submitted to alt.writing in 1999. I don’t remember that at all, and if I didn’t know the author, it would impress me. I don’t think it received any critique, but since it doesn’t feel like my writing, and I expect less of myself, it might actually be decent.
