taste is in the tongue of the beholder

I was reading about The Writing Practice over at Chris Brogan’s blog. It’s about how he takes little snippets of time where ever he is to do a bit of writing. (He calls that time quilting. Clever.)

One piece of advice he has there about writing practice is this:

Publish often. Another place where our practice falls down is that we keep tons of drafts of things around, seek but never publish. Here’s the truth: If it’s not out there, it doesn’t count as much. (Journal keepers, I don’t mean you. Put down the purple pitchforks.) Get your work out there onto the web, onto blogs, into the hands of other people, whatever. Get it out there. The more you publish, the more people will take swings at it, the more people will riff off it, the more you’ll get the chance to get feedback.

This fits perfectly into one of my 3 words for 2010: Deploy(). If I don’t get it out there, it doesn’t count. So this is getting posted right now. As is. Even if this post is 90% Chris’s content ;-)
