Writing for Beginners

August 22nd 2016

So what if, instead of thinking about writing as a way to transfer knowledge from one brain to the next, we thought about it as a way to build understanding? First, in ourselves, in our minds...

This pretty-well sums up the reason I've been writing on this page for the last five months, almost every day. It has made me more critical of the things I read. And when I come across something particularly thought-provoking or insightful, I use this space to explore my own thoughts and try to build understanding. That alone is valuable to me, enough so that spending time building this site and forcing myself into a daily routine becomes trivial.

The reason I hit 'publish' at the end of this process is simply to overcome the fear of shipping work.
