That’s how many times I’ve deleted something and started a new post. Just this post. If a post has come out here in the past several years, you can bet it’s survived a dozen iterations each. It’s not that I’m not writing anything.
I’m just deleting it.
Nothing of mine will get published if I don’t keep it.
Sometimes an affirmation of purpose and intent requires a small act. In this case, it’s hitting the “publish” button. I am allowing no more deleted words. All of this has been spur of the moment. My inner Faulkner is coming out to play. How’s everyone doing? I hope y’all are doing well.
I’m doing…strange. Weird might be a more suitable word. Perhaps it’s my severe urge to move this thing to the trash. But that’s not going to happen this time.
This time, I’m going to hit “publish”.
