The last time I posted an article on this blog was November 6th. Up until then, I’d posted about 1,900 articles–about one every day and a half for a number of years. It’s hard work trying to find something to say that’s (hopefully) new, worthwhile, insightful and still not too long. I was, to some extent, exhausted. Burnt out.
It wasn’t just burn-out from the writing. I love writing. Not because I love telling my ideas to others. That’s good, but it’s not my primary motivation. I love writing because it teaches me. I don’t seek to teach by writing. I (mostly) seek to learn by writing.
