I feel I owe you all a bit of an apology as I feel many of my posts of late have been, well, garbage. More often than not, I find myself deciding on a topic at the very last second and just writing up the minimum I can in a short amount of time just to get something written.

In other words, I'm putting greater stock in my daily writing goal than in the quality of that writing. 

It's kind of a necessary balancing act, though. 

If I come out and say that my ideas or words are crap and opt to skip a day of blogging as a result, then that kicks me off down a rather slippery slope to where I'm only blogging a few times a week or, god forbid, a handful of times per month like I was back in 2010-2014.

I don't want to go back there.

It took a lot of work to get me back to daily writing after that dark period and I loathe the idea of having to do that all over again. 

So, please bear with me. Once in a while I write a small gem. Maybe consistency will help me return to a place where I unearth more gems on a less irregular schedule.

We can hope, right?
