Writing in general and writing a blog in particular is like physical training. It takes practice to get better. It takes time and effort. It is both challenging and extremely rewarding. And missing a day or two of training can really make a difference in one's abilities and motivation.
That's why whenever I write on Sunday nights I feel that the quality of my writing is not at the level of the typical mid-week post. Even though I've had two days of rest and free intellectual-wandering, it's still tough to get back into the groove. So consider this my warm up post for this week.
