Quantity Vs Quality

In wanting to feel part of a writing community, I did something to myself which I now realise I need to re-adjust. It’s to do with my own writing, and a struggle between quantity versus quality. One of them, I can do aplenty, the other is not necessarily as easy for me.

The sound of the word ‘procrastination’ just makes me want to procrastinate. It’s five syllables for a start.
