Friday Notes #9 — Writing is about taking unexpected turns. This week’s Friday notes should have been about explaining my “nom de plume”: Numeric Citizen. After spending some time thinking and writing to explain its meaning, I realized the answer wouldn’t fit the usual shortform format of the Friday notes series. Writing is about taking unexpected turns.

Sometimes, quite the opposite happens: I have an idea or a subject that I want to write about, thinking it will be a long blog post requiring long hours of writing efforts. Inspiration is lacking, hard to structure ideas, unclear story line, the writing project falls apart. Writing is also accepting when things just don’t work, and moving on is the best outcome. That’s why, over time, I have a numeric junkyard of unfinished, abandoned written pieces.
