Writing small

I’ve always written small — small poems (I actively don’t like long ones, as a rule), smallish blog posts, etc. The one nanowrimo that I won (2006) totally surprised me, due to the fact that I never thought I could come up with at least 50,000 words on anything.

Turns out my instincts are a good thing, according to Seth Godin:

One secret of ‘small is the new big‘ thinking is that you won’t fail and you can’t fail and you don’t need to worry about a bailout. Not because you’re small in headcount or assets, but because you act small.

If you act small and think big, you are too small to fail.
