Writing for Me

/ 1 min read

“Blogging is fun and therapeutic. Grammar and editing aren’t. As long as your thoughts are coherent, don’t worry too much about writing mistakes or filtering yourself. Just use Grammarly to fix elementary-level errors and move on. It’s more about the writing process than the final product.”


I disagree, because when I look back at my work from less than a year ago, I’m embarrassed by how much the writing sucks. Of course, I’m proud of how much I’ve improved, but I can’t resist the urge to correct the mistakes of my earlier work.

The only thing stopping me from improving is my lack of time. If I put the time in now, I’ll spend less time obsessing about how much better it could have been. I need to get as close to perfect as possible. I’m not writing for you, I’m writing for me.
