I saw this write up about Aaron Sorkin and the writing on Newsroom just after posting Blogging-Write More and found the part about meeting a weekly deadline for a series interesting – hugely paraphrased he says that you have to write it and let it go, there just isn’t time for perfection. If you think you feel pressure about blogging, how would it feel to write a TV show and send an episode to production knowing it’s not perfect?
You and I get to practice on a much smaller stage and with a much more forgiving audience. It doesn’t mean we can be lazy, but it does mean we can make some mistakes and live to write more another day. Go write something.
