Don't give up: I have learned that one of the unexpectedly valuable aspects of writˇng something down is that, thought you thought you knew what you were thinking about, you sometimes discover that all you had was a vague idea. It's actually writing down the thought that makes you consider it more deeply, and sometimes you realise that you have been labouring under a misconception. Even I have managed to shatter some long-held beliefs of my own by such second-thoughts! How humbling is that!(?)
Could not agree more! One of the great benefits of teaching
(or simply helping someone understand a concept) is how much one learns
in the process. I think I feel a bit tempted to dive into the latest "yet another another perspective vs focal length debate" now... bah! not tempted enough.
P.S. I think that writing should be as photography: do it to please yourself, not an imaginary audience that, by definition, may not even exist.
So true... (specially considering the size of my real
); problem is that I tend to be my worst critic, so most of my audience
has this annoying habit or nit-picking everything I do.
Grammar, man, grammar! Unless that was your attempt at German
Fixed, thank you! And this is probably another good reason to keep posting something now and then: to keep my English skills polished.
