Daily Create #1747 is to answer the question, why do I write? The Daily Create website claims that today is the National Day of Writing, however does not identify which nation, so I’ll assume that it is Honduras. So, to celebrate Honduras’ National Day of Writing, I will try to describe why I write.
Here are some things that I write:
- text messages
- notes to self
- blog posts for work and for myself here in this space
- oh, there’s another email to write
- you have to write something in the box when you Google stuff
- grocery lists. (just kidding, I just wing it and that is why we have 17 bags of spaghetti)
- Tweets. And sometimes the tweets will be written about other writings I’ve done so we’ve gone meta
- Just let me finish this one email
- That might be about all the things I regularly write other than did I mention email?
But why? Oh yeah, that’s the real question. Well, for me in this space, it’s to practice, try ideas out, reflect on the process and to share the ideas for anyone to borrow from if they want because I am going to borrow from you, too! I think it is fun to frame your thoughts with a sprinkle of humour if you can think of a funny way to present things. Might as well get a giggle out of it while you let people know that you are thinking and the ideas that are important to you. Seriously, why not?
