Great expectations

Shawn Blanc on the topic of writing.

Today, as I write this, I’m sitting in the same place I usually sit when I write an article for my office. Writing this article feels no different than the hundreds of other articles I’ve written over the years. But now, in this moment, the expectations are greater…

There are my own expectations of what will I publish today? What will come tomorrow and the next day and the next day? These are not just expectations of what the site itself looks like and what gets published to it, but also how I spend my time on the back end. A few thousand words published to the site can represent dozens of hours of work.

I’m a big fan of Shawn’s work and have found myself increasingly drawn to his sincere prose.

Personally I think he’s doing a great job and I hope he keeps this up for years to come.
