Writer’s Note: Moving Forward

This is something I wanted to do for some time now. In fact, I should have done this sooner, but I wasn’t sure if I had it in me.


Dear readers,

I am writing this on the back of a trip to Japan just a few days ago, and I will be posting my reflections soon, but that’s not what this is about.

I’d like to apologise for the lack of a regular content schedule. This is something I’ve been thinking about; something I hold myself accountable for — I take weeks, sometimes months, to write a piece, publish it, and then slide off the radar. The cycle repeats itself.

Throughout my life, discipline is something I struggle with, more so on certain days. I often find myself procrastinating and getting distracted by things that don’t necessarily add value to my being. Having always stood firm in my belief that writing is my one true love, I wasn’t sure if that was still the case, not when writing sometimes seemed more tedious than enjoyable. I am slipping, and I want to put a stop to it.

That brings me to the announcement I want to make — I will be attempting to write on a regular basis, starting with a post every Saturday. This way, there will be a more stable schedule in which you can check in and find something new each week. It is also a means for me to stay focused on my craft, writing even when inspiration doesn’t find me. This, I realise, is an essential ability.

Additionally, I will be synchronising my activity here to my social media accounts, so wherever you choose to view my work, you won’t be left behind. That said, you may find me on Instagram and Facebook.

If you have been following me this whole time, thank you. I appreciate the support, however minimal, however inconspicuous, and I am looking forward to creating better content for you. I will probably stumble at some point, but I am determined to better myself, and I seek your patience as I do so.

With love,

Benjamin Tan
