Get Used to Disappointment has been my blog since September 2011. After a nearly two year hiatus I rebooted my blog in August 2017. My goal with Get Used to Disappointment 2.0 is to more fully embrace the title of this blog. Yes, it’s a great line from The Princess Bride (1987) and it really lowers expectations from readers, yet there is another meaning to the title. To become better at anything you need to push yourself, and that means sometimes reaching beyond your ability and failing, sometimes spectacularly. You have to get used to disappointment if you want to improve and I want to be a better writer. That’s why the title of this blog is Get Used to Disappointment.
