I have always considered myself as a completer finisher, someone who can be relied on to get things done. But in terms of blog posts, the description just doesn’t fit.
I have recently realised that I now have 15 unfinished blog posts, ranging back over a number of years. Some of these are just blog titles and a few lines, whereas others are 95% completed. Often I get inspiration to write something but just fail to get the right tone, or the right ending or after I’ve written something, I think it just isn’t interesting enough to publish!
I find that generally I write a blog post in just a few sittings. I draft a post, then revisit it a day or so later to make some final amendments and additions, and then publish it. Maybe I should take longer writing my blog posts, but in honesty, this just slows down the process for me. I am much better just writing what I think, tidying it up and then releasing it to the world.
So this blog post is a confession of sorts. I am not the completer finisher I thought I was.
