“The first draft of anything is shit.”
― Ernest Hemingway
I wanted to continue the thought from my last inspirational quote post where I talked about getting off track and slowing down my writing.

It’s 11:59 pm and I’m just getting started on this post. I had not planned to write one today, or this late. My posts are usually written a bit in advance now, scheduled out at least a day or two. Sometimes they come spontaneously though.

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
I need some inspiration right about now because I feel I have gone off track.
“How’s that?” you ask.
I’m finding it difficult to balance quality and quantity when it comes to producing content for my blog.
