The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.— Lao Tzu.
This is the very first post on my new blog.
I’ve decided to start writing again in my spare time. I actually started blogging years ago and used to write A LOT but met a wall with writer’s block. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy writing anymore, but at one point I almost didn’t know what to write about. I’m a sucker for self-improvement and though I could see some merit in what I wrote, I could also see where my words could be more polished.
So I took a break.
Streaming has been fun, it really has. It was also a nice distraction from mundane activities like work, but you must understand writing is where I can express myself without being so self-conscious. Don’t worry, I’ll still be streaming in addition to writing, though I really do want to get a book or a piece of work published one day.
In tweets, I can only compose so much and for some reason, I can’t let my thoughts flow as freely. And let’s not forget how polarising Twitter can be or how one can get lost in a world of chasing likes, retweets or followers.
I’ve always been a better writer than speaker. In fact, I oftentimes prefer it to talking because of the way I can string words together and put them into context rather than getting startled by being put on the spot and saying the wrong thing.
There are, of course a few other things I hope to gain from this: that I open some windows as a means of catharsis, and that you, the reader can glimpse a little more into my world and learn things about me too.
