a graph relating understanding, writing, and time
This graph illustrates one of the problems that afflicts me as a writer. Too often, I don't have the confidence (or gumption) to start writing until I reach the X. By that time in the learning cycle, downhill momentum is significant. It's easier not to write, either because I figure what I have to say is old news or because my mind has moved on to another topic. I am thankful that other people share their learning at the top of the curve. ~~~~ Sarah Perry. created the above image for one of her many fine essays. I came upon it in David Chapman's Ignorant, Irrelevant, and Inscrutable. The blue X is mine. -----
