With blogging, I’m not so sure it’s about quantity as much as it’s about frequency: for me, there’s something kind of magical about posting once a day. Good things happen.

So wrote Austin Kleon, in “A few notes on daily blogging.” Austin is a writer and artist I admire a lot, and is one of a small coterie of bloggers who have got me thinking: why not try writing?

Since I graduated from college a year ago–in English literature–I haven’t written much. Oh, here and there, but nothing consistent. So here I aim to write. Every. day. I’m trying to remind myself, it doesn’t have to be big. Even ten words a day would bring me to 3,650 words after a year, and 36,500 words in a decade! Who knows? Maybe good things will happen.
