If you follow me on twitter, you probably know that I’m a writer. In fact, that’s probably why you follow me on twitter. I tweet about writing and love the community of writers I have found on twitter.
But if you’ve read my blog, (and here you are, so I’m guessing you’ve had a look), you’ve probably noticed I don’t write much about writing.
There are several reasons for this.
I don’t have much new to say about the writing process. I have tried blogging about my writing in the past, to mild and temporary success. It is not my goal to avoid blogging about writing, but as a central focus, I simply don’t have enough to sustain a blog.
There are about one million blogs out there that talk about writing. They talk about the industry, the effort, the successes, failures, and techniques of other writers. The ones I have come across are brilliant, and I enjoy reading them. They are immensely helpful, and contribute to a conversation I’m glad to participate in. I do not feel a pressing need to carve out my own voice from among them on a topic they cover so well.
I like to write. I have a lot of thoughts racing through my mind, and I like to write them down. I like to organize and process the universe in small chunks. Instead of having a website where I discuss writing, I decided to have a website where I write. Here, I will write about anything that intrigues me. I may even write about writing. But my goal is simply to write.
