One thing I do not do often is write for my own enjoyment, which is why I have been following 's #write365 experiment with great interest. I was also very interested to see a recent post by one of my copywriting contacts , who detailed the problems she has finding her own "voice" after spending all day every day, writing for clients.
Ultimately, the key is (as always) to remember where you are writing, what you hope to achieve and who your audience is. Colin's outlet here on G+ gives us some great philosophical insights, but I suspect he writes for himself as much as he does the rest of us. Rachel on the other hand is struggling with business and personal operating in the same blog space, leading to personality conflicts in the process.
Which brings us straight back to some of the issues Colin has been wrestling with in write365...
I think you may appreciate this one ;)
The difference between how you see agile programming, or anything agile, and how your boss sees it....
