"Nulla dies sine linea" (No day without a line). This is a line attributed to Apelles. I first read it on a bookmark that I got from Les Bouquinistes, the bookshop in Chicoutimi (and for a long time my favourite bookshop). I loved it. It should be understood as an injunction to get something done during the day. But I think it works perfectly for a reader or any kind of writer. Including a blogger. I try to read a page or two of a real book, I also try to blog at least twice a day, one French post and one English post.
It was easier when I was unemployed, obviously I had more time. But quality was not always there. I look at my posts in 2008 and I think they were redundant or utterly uninspired. Still, when I have less time, I think it matters that I produce something and at least do some writing, exercise my brain a bit. Sure, it's not like I am writing Ulysses, but still. It matters that I muse a bit every day, that I exercise some kind of creativity, some writing discipline too, that I get read as well. So this could be the motto of this blog.
