Season 1 Recap
Reflecting on The Spoonful's First Season
When I first heard about writing consistently online, I was doubtful I could do it. Having written online in fits and starts since 2015, a smattering of Medium articles and personal blog posts, I thought it wasn’t for me. I doubted my commitment, I doubted my skill, I doubted that there would be space for me in the vast world of internet writing.
But I’m here. And with this publication on Substack, The Spoonful, I feel a freedom of expression, topic, and intellect that I’ve never felt before.
I’ve given much thought to how I’ll stay consistent with my publishing, how I can enhance my writing, and how I’ll reflect regularly on how far I’ve come.
To that end, I’ve decided to wrap every burst of publishing on The Spoonful into a “Season.”
I’d like for these essays to be savored, and reflecting on the effort that went into writing them is a way to share my process – creating an artifact to show how I’m evolving as a writer.
What does this mean for you, as a reader?
I still aim to publish weekly, but I may take a week or two off in between seasons. At the end of a season (like right now) I’ll be crafting these recap posts, which will briefly reflect on the past several weeks.
I began this journey on Substack with Write of Passage, an online writing course that’s so much more than an online writing course. The six pieces of this season are some of the best writing I’ve done, and I credit the rigor and feedback of the Write of Passage community for helping me to get here. I loved the course so much, I know I’ll be back for another cohort.
In this season, I published 6 pieces. It’s a bit early to tell whether this length is typical or not. Projecting into the future, I imagine each Season of The Spoonful to have 5-7 pieces.
Let’s jump into the writing!
Onwards and upwards!
