February 11th - 200 posts...
Another milestone, 200 posts of 365 letters. Am I meeting my expectations? Good question. It feels like I repeat myself. I wonder if anything is interesting, perhaps meaningful. Truth told, I have been cautious, keeping things bigger perspectives, avoiding opening up.
I feel like my story needs protecting, why? Because I do not want to expose others, look weak, be less than, control the narrative or? Is reality I want to be surface only, stay guarded? How does this benefit the exercise? Am I still learning how to be a better writer – have I made any progress in style, technique, voice? Do I want to try harder? Good question.
If I were to make any changes, where to start? I could since there is still a fair number of days. The intention was a letter, does this feel like one. Letter = a written or printed communication directed to a person or organization. Well… I overall am attempting to talk with myself, write what might be in my thoughts…and given most my thinking is a self-examination, the brain dumping that often goes deeper, being less serious is a break from routine? Good question.
I am discovering the lost art of letter writing.
Hmmm, adding up…day 201!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
