Being the chronic perfectionist I am, entries on my blog simply never seem to happen. I have plenty of wonderful things to talk about, but the thought of seeing my imperfect thoughts set in stone for all to see is often too painful to bear. Perhaps I shouldn't be so pedantic. After all, the delete button exists for a reason.

Anyway, I thought that in order to get my creative juices flowing I might write my thoughts on each devotion in Thomas à Kempis' "Imitation of Christ". Between the four books there are 114 devotions, so even if I write a post every day the project will take me three and a half months. I won't do it for anyone else - it will simply be for my own nostalgia and edification.

i know what you mean about the perfectionism, it's very hard to start new diaries/blogs. it's so pressure-to-perform-y. so much pretty white space to be filled and it can't be sullied by inferior thought processes.
but it'll probably be much easier once you've started.
