It Almost Feels Like A Failure

I spent a few hours writing yesterday. I was hoping to finish my first newsletter of the year.

As it turns out, I wrote almost a thousand words and I'm not sure any of it is any good. It feels like I may just ramble on.

I can feel in this moment that this is why people stop before ever getting started. It almost feels like a failure and we're only one day into the new year.

I will continue to write and edit, and I will release a newsletter tomorrow. It may not be the greatest work ever released into the world, but it will be a start.

A small step forward in the direction I want to go.
