Why am I so nervous to put my thoughts in writing? I have eight unfinished blog posts in my drafts folder today. I put a lot of heart into my designs too, you would think the experience of putting my words into the world be equal to the pain of publishing my portfolio site.
There is too much uncertainty behind my writing skills. I haven't taken a writing class since college, while I've spent thousands of hours honing my design skills. In fact, when I lack the confidence in choosing an appropriate word, it is not unlikely that I will make one up.
The purpose of this blog is to practice conquering my fear. If I were able to write cohesively, perhaps it would help me to be more articulate when speaking about my work. Or if I were more mindful of what I'm trying to communicate, I might make up fewer words. Regardless, I have one more place I can add sketches of line art!
