If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don’t write, because our culture has no use for it.~Anais Nin
Just over a month ago, I took up a challenge by Seth Godin to write a daily blog. At first, I was worried that I would not have something to write every day. Or, if I wrote every day that my writing would be worthy of someone’s, anyone’s time. I have found over the past month that a lack of topics is not an issue. On the contrary, I have dreamed up more topics that I want to explore through writing than I have the time to write. I keep these topics in a notebook which I use to capture topics as they bubble to the surface of my consciousness. I find myself looking forward to writing every day. My only regret is that, after I spill my thoughts onto paper, an alphabet soup of fragmented phrases and incoherent ideas and drivel, I lack sufficient time to artfully arrange them into a kaleidoscope of sentences that make sense, entertain, and instigate thought. Luckily, I have 11 more months of writing to achieve my personal goal of a blog a day for 365 days.
