Random intro’s, writing & perfection

Random intro's, writing & perfection

And here we are again. Another blank page on my computer screen at the tail end of summer. The leaves are already turning brownish, the days have already shortened, and that nice summer shine has the sting of a cold breeze that chills you to the bone.

Random Introductions

Sometimes my intro’s might seem a little random because they are. I know.

When a blank page is staring me in the face I don’t always know what to write. So I start with the randomness of the moment – like looking outside at the tree in front of my window and remembering that it was so cold when I went outside to put out the trash this morning.

The first sentence you put to paper doesn’t have to be brilliant.

So many of you put so much pressure into concocting the perfect first sentence that you never get to writing the damn thing at all.

You think that writers write everything in one go and boom it’s perfect. But it’s not. There is a lot of repetition, randomness, and re-writing.

Don’t stop writing that post because you feel it’s imperfect. You never know who needs to hear what you have to say, however imperfect it has been written down.

Sucking at something can be utile.

There’s beauty, vulnerability, and a certain ballsiness in daring to be imperfect.

Perfecting your craft will come later. Adding a storyline and a strategy and all that marketing jazz will come later.

First, you gotta start and you mostly do that before you are ready.

Adventure Awaits when you just jump feet first!
