Writing in a hurry can be fun, but it usually isn't. Although even when it isn't, there's some weird sick joy to be had in "knocking shit out." It's even better when that shit actually isn't shit, but just the act of getting it written is good enough (for me, anyway).
Still, even I've noticed that the level of superficiality in what I write (be it creative writing or ranting/raving) has increased since I set myself the goal of posting at least four entries a week. It's alarming, yes, and I have no desire to develop bad habits (even as a quasi-writer). But perhaps that's the challenge? Write quickly with depth, rather than just write quickly.
Of course, a goal has to be known in order to be set, yes? So that's the goal for the rest of the year. Quick and deep, because the shallow stuff is starting to irk me (hmm... sounds like sex... er... forget I wrote that).
Then again, I've noticed a lot of writing from others that seems to be suffering from superficiality. And I don't mean in general, since most write superficially... I'm speaking of people whose writings typically have a lot more depth than they have as of late. Hmm... maybe the transition from spring to summer (or fall to winter, depending on your hemisphere) makes people dumber. Or lazier. Or both.
Anyway, just thought I'd put it out there that I'm going to try a bit harder. When I don't, feel absolutely free to call me out on it. I may just ignore you, but you might feel better about it.
Time to write.
