the discipline of mediocrity

There are a thousand things that make me want to stop writing, a litany of lacks I recite to myself by the light of a touch screen. In the end my fingers move as a discipline -- "So friends, every day do something that will not compute." For someone like me, Berry's words are a charge to push publish on something cliche, unpolished, or - worst of all - cheesy, and to let something I do live outside the realm of judgment and critique, even and especially something I want so badly to be great at. (I really tried to just let this end right there with a preposition. I guess I still have a long way to go.)
