Cringe factor

One argument against publishing is the cringe factor. When I look back and re-read what I wrote a decade ago, I shudder. Hell, I cringe even at what I wrote just weeks ago. Sometimes even within hours or minutes.

To permanently inscribe your sentiments in the public domain, as you would upon publishing a book: perhaps that isn’t sensible or wise. Certainly, I’ve never been able to do that. Fortunately with a blog, you can withdraw at will. It’s a bit harder when your words are in print, stored on a stranger’s bookshelf.
