Why I started…
“I want to be a writer: ideally a published writer. But I want to be able to write. No matter what I do, I always seem to fall short – I plan to write a lot, I have numerous ideas and possibilities jotted down in various random places, but recording more than that always seems like a struggle.
So, here is a record of that struggle – to spur me on, to guilt me into writing, to find out where I am going wrong.
At the very least, I want to know I tried. At the end of everyday I would much prefer to say ‘I tried and failed’ rather than ‘I didn’t even bother’.”
