A rather interesting truth I learned from my late teenage years, especially from making this website, is that considering saying something makes you wiser.

I'd written several articles on Protagonism on my own computer, in preparation for the day I'd finally put up the website. But when I did... I realized they were kinda shit. Many of the ideas I had, I believed them sincerely but I wouldn't blame someone for thinking they were crazy. Even if they'd seemed solid and obviously correct to me before, just considering saying them to other people made me realize some parts that couldn't be right.

Ever since then, and even before then in retrospect, I've experienced that every time I write something, the anxiety of being about to send it causes me to become wiser.

So if you have any ideas you haven't told anyone... consider my advice: post them in public somewhere, and just before you do, you'll probably realize some weak points.
