Getting it down on `paper`

Founding Statement

I have never thought of writing for reputation and honor. What I have in my heart must come out; that is the reason why I compose. Ludwig van Beethovan

I wish that this noble statement were true for me as well, but that’s not often the case. When I try to be humble, I spare the details, often at great expense to the lesson. When I try to be overly showy, I don’t get to the point.

In just the past month alone, I have been hesitant to write out my thoughts, and have lost any possibility of pursuing those endeavors further, as I can no longer remember them. I failed to ask questions in fear of projecting uncertainty. What I have succeeded at doing is completely passing on the opportunity to reflect later on.

I don’t write because I don’t re-read. This post has already grown so long. Will I read it later? So let the lesson be this: Write often, write succinctly, and reflect.
