One of the nice things about setting up a new blog — or any Web site — is the possibilities. One of the frightening things about setting up a new blog is actually coming up with some sort of content to fill it.
As the name of this blog suggests (it’s called
Five Minutes, for those playing the home game), I’m going to attempt to write for five minutes a day about whatever takes my fancy. Call it the site’s gimmick, or reason for being.
Why five minutes? The main reason is that I’m trying to learn to write better under time pressure. Scriptwriting classes where you have 90 minutes to write a few pages can be a bit intimidating, to say the least. Writing under even more time pressure seems to be a good idea to me.
Of course, it’s likely that I won’t get to this every day, due to uni, work, cricket, and the myriad other things that eat away at my time, but let’s see how long I can keep it up.
Well, that’s five minutes.
