“Everyone should write a blog, every day, even if no one reads it. There’s countless reasons why it’s a good idea and I can’t think of one reason it’s a bad idea.” – Seth Godin
Three things happened tonight in a matter of one hour that led to this blog.
First, a friend of mine shared that he was writing a short story, ‘Vazhve Mayam’ (Life is a Delusion). He just shared it with me – I was the first one to read.
Second, I read an article about ‘Woody Allen: A Documentary’. ‘Writing is a great life,’ says Woody Allen.
Finally, I read the above quote by Seth here.
There is a beauty in expression. Especially for an introvert like whose tongue-tying moments are more often than expected, it is a mandatory exercise.
I have praised about freewriting earlier, but these days in the name of work, I forgot to indulge.
I am writing again and writing I will.
The savvy rational mind set a target in the beginning of the year to write 50 posts this year. I crossed writing 100 posts last year. Not a bad target for a crappy writer.
But thanks to Seth’s inspiration, what if I try writing everyday, a plip, a peep into my life’s process, a reminscence into my mind’s indulges… How I forgot to write for pleasure… do things for the love of it…
I got 172 days left!
