finally launched

March 17, 2020,
from chen's home office, quarantine:

so, i’m sitting in quarantine due to the Corona breakout, and figured it’s a great time to finally ship my blog.

i’ve been using WordPress for a few months and found it incredibly limited and cumbersome.

Gatsby is blazing fast, super flexible, and i get to learn ReactJS and GraphQL all at the same time. sounds like a no-brainer, doesn’t it?

so here goes: my first post.

phew, that was hard.
i mean, not physically hard - but mentally hard!
just the act of sitting down to write can be incredibly daunting.

whether it’s code, design, writing or any other creative activity - we tend to procrastinate way too much. don’t know if it’s a bad habit, or the unconscious attempt to avoid public shaming and failure.
nevertheless, that’s the creator’s experience.
better embrace it.

have a safe week y’all,
chen

p.s. Steven Pressfield has written an incredible book on the topic of sitting down to write and overcoming procrastination, it’s called The War of Art.
