Just reread this piece I posted to my blog at the beginning of the year. I'm weirdly surprised at how well it holds up. As I was reading it, I realized that I had already made all the rebuttals that I would make today if I were writing it again, and I'm impressed with myself :)
It's weird. Even though I know that I'm a good writer, and that I'm good with words and always have been, I never seem to believe it until I reread old pieces and realize that I would still agree with them and stand by them, 2 years down the line. It's weird how I've convinced myself that I'm a fraud, even though, it turns out, I kinda do know my shit! Does that happen to you guys*?
*Oh, and feel free to comment/debate/disagree with the article itself too.
