Most of the time I write stuff just so I can find out what I think. I wrote this and still don't know what I think, which is frustrating, but I posted it anyway, in the spirit of "show your work."

@kl here is an exercise i’ve always found very helpful: when you get stuck, set a hard limit on word count. if you’re still stuck, reduce the limit. repeat as necessary.

@sl That's good advice. I usually set a goal of 250 words a day and try to treat anything more than that as a bonus... my suspicion is that I just have a hell of a lot going on this summer and don't have the headspace necessary to do work I feel good about right now, and that I'm overthinking it (as per usual).

@sl Also, for what it's worth, I meant what I said about feeling very inspired by your self-published stuff, and I'm hoping to emulate that approach to getting the work out there with my current work-in-progress.
