Thinking, creating, editing


It’s been a month (yikes) since my last post.  Yikes.  I’ve been writing quite a bit, actually.  Not programming so much, but still creating.

Left to my own devices to just amble, ramble, and hit letters on a keyboard I will bang out so many words and say very little.  With a bit of editing I can cut back on some detail and really cut back my word-count.  Now, if I was paid by the word, then… well…  *grin*

For me, word-count isn’t as important as getting the message across.  However, I must also avoid the dreaded “Wall-Of-Text” but also the “TL;DR” (Too Long; Didn’t Read) concerns.  *shrug*

I read an interesting article about how posting updates during the progress of a creative work actually makes it harder to proceed.  Apparently, posting updates gives a sense of accomplishment… which makes you feel like you’re done… and not be so inclined go back to work on it.

Hm.  Who’d’ve thought, right?

It does explain why I feel I’ve accomplished more when I go long periods without posting to the blog, here.

…or maybe more time between posts gives me more to write about.
