For one thing, I shouldn't expect myself to be able to produce all the time. Of course not.
But also the issue of reading comes to mind.
I think I was able to produce so much at the end of 2010 because I had been seriously reading for the whole year.
And I think I have been able to write so much of AZI because it is pulling on all of the different things that I have been reading since I graduated from college. There is more than a years worth of serious reading going into that project.
Writing requires so much research and reading. I shouldn't expect myself to just be out put out put out put all the time. I need so much more input. So many more books.
It is good to remind myself how much reading had to happen before I was able to write what I have written.
I need to remember how much more I need to read to write more.
