On (failure to write) well-thought posts

by Lilia Efimova on 16 December 2015

While my writing was derailed by Anna’s finger getting trapped in a door (almost healed by now) and the busyness of the holiday season (and here Christmas is nothing compared to the suspense of Sinterklaas), the thinking continues. Ideally, I’d like to write a well-research posts full of references to relevant material, but every time I attempt to do so, I see how my daily work – giving attention to the kids’ learning and the household – starts falling into pieces.

In a sense it’s good to realise that: as far as my own projects appear as a dotted line, I’m not ready to go back to work (which, of course, I’d like to combine with the whole unschooling endeavour). And, while the gardening season is practically closed after the heavy work of replanting mature asparagus plants last week, writing still has to compete with the sewing projects waiting for me on the attic.

So, I guess I just have to give up my own writing standards and all those “to blog about” things in my head, and just write something. And, yes, I have no idea when I’ll get to fixing the invisible comments.
