I do this because it makes me confront the imposter’s syndrome everyday. I have to look at the fear everyday and decide that despite everything that it is telling me, that I will indeed make something and publish it. It is a practice.
Right now, it is mostly for me. To learn: to learn how to write everyday, to learn how to communicate more clearly; to become familiar with the feeling of anxiety that wells up and says “not good enough,” and how it feels to create along side that.
It’s also about paying attention. If I don’t pay attention to anything throughout my day, it is doubly as hard to write. Because what is there to write about if I’ve noticed nothing?
