Writing takes time.

Friday Notes #33 โ€” Be wary of the silent blogger
One of my recent photos โ€” I like it a lot, but I donโ€™t know why

Iโ€™ve been quiet on my main blog in recent weeks. Iโ€™m not anxious about this because I have a pretty good excuse for this situation. Itโ€™s not because of a lack of interest or ideas, quite the opposite, actually. If my blog posts have been scarce recently, itโ€™s because Iโ€™ve been working for quite some time on much longer than usual posts (five to be exact). They require a lot of research, documentation, experimentation, testing and write-up. This takes time. I like to work on many blog posts at once. Iโ€™m an iterative kind of writer and having many pieces in the pipeline helps me refine them to my liking, by visiting each of them many times a week, for tweaking and proofreading. Oh, and I almost forgot, Iโ€™m working on my monthly newsletter too.

Lastly, itโ€™s summertime, taking a pause, trying to get away from screens is a good habit.
