7-May-2013 I like writing!

Tuesday 7 May 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

It feels weird to say it, but I quite like writing. I don’t think I am really that good at it, and I am writing this blog for my kids, or grandkids, or myself so it doesn’t even matter if its good writing or not, but I quite enjoy it.

The more I write the more I like it (yep – exactly how it is with running and even yoga, maybe …).

This article has a few good comments and as always is better put than my own efforts

  • Writing helps you reflect on your life and changes you’re making. This is incredibly valuable, as often we do things without realizing why, or what effects these things are having on us.

  • Writing clarifies your thinking. Thoughts and feelings are nebulous happenings in our mind holes, but writing forces us to crystalize those thoughts and put them in a logical order.

  • Writing daily forces you to come up with new ideas regularly, and so that forces you to solve the very important problem of where to get ideas. What’s the answer to that problem? Ideas are everywhere! In the people you talk to, in your life experiments, in things you read online, in new ventures and magazines and films and music and novels. But when you write regularly, your eyes are open to these ideas

When I was in Dhaka I read a magazine called “Kinfolk” and took a photo of this quote which I quite like and it’s sort of relvant to this post:
