This year I set myself the target of writing 100 posts for this blog. So far I'm at 33 posts with nearly 2/3rds of the year gone. Things started well, but lately I've been struggling to write more than one or two posts a month.

So far most advice I've received on helping with writer's block has been "write more". It's difficult to find the motivation to start when all of my ideas suddenly sound terrible.

I've written nearly 100,000 words for this blog (for comparison, "The Great Gatsby" is 47,000 words) but I still don't consider myself to be a writer. Maybe there's some magic number of words where this feeling changes.

I haven't found that number yet. All I can do is write more.
