I'm still not sure I've done the thought about circles of acquaintanceship proper justice but I'm reminded of a passage from Ben Werdmüller's post that I linked to recently:
"you jot down your thoughts and hit 'publish'. And then you move on. There isn’t an editorial process, and mistakes are an accepted part of the game. It’s raw."
Time and again I've written about getting away from the notion of perfect, away from trying to write articles rather than posts, to capture that rawness.
I still get hung up but think I'm slowly getting better.
Rawness is fragments, mistakes, unfinished thoughts, getting things out of your head and onto the page whether they're ready or not.
I can iterate after.
