Once upon a time, I wrote a weekly opinion column for my local newspaper. I miss this rhythm in my life.
The task of having something to say each week in about 700 words.
The fear of not having something to say. Or of having some idea of what to say but not knowing exactly how to say it.
The anticipation of how my ideas would be received or engaged by my community.
I don’t have a newspaper publishing me anymore. But there is still great benefit in writing for me personally. Maybe there will be an audience and engagement at some point.
So I am going to be starting again. Sometime soon.
