On (not) writing

It’s been quiet here for a while. It could be that I have been busy. I am about to transition into a new work role, so the last few weeks I have been finishing things off, and now I will have lots of new things to learn.

But I don’t think the lack of content is related to that. I have started quite a few draft posts over the last few weeks that have not yet seen the light of day. No, I think the problem is that I worry too much about things being perfect, my version of what Steven Pressfield calls, in his book ‘The War of Art‘, the Resistance (with a deliberate capital ‘R’).

So, I am going to make some changes. I will aim for more short posts, and not worry whether everything is perfect and all my arguments watertight. And I will write on a wider variety of topics, not just research policy.

If you are interested to see how it goes, please subscribe, and I am always interesting in hearing your feedback.
