Why DO This?


Written on 5:08 PM by Jack B.

The point of this weblog is just to give me an excuse to write. I’m not trying to be a reporter. I’m not trying to make an ideological or cultural point. It’s not about politics or religion (though of course I have views on them). It’s about writing. For me personally I’ve always felt I was a writer. That is my vocation. Everything else I do is merely a job – to get money, to gain knowledge, all in the pursuit of art (and not starving to death).

The problem is that writing is not like riding a bike. You CAN lose it if you stop doing it. I was so busy the last 6 months that I haven’t had time to write and then when I tried – nothing. The only solution is to write, write, write. Write till your fingers start to hurt. Write till your brains start to freeze. Write about anything at all. So that’s exactly what I’m going to do. Hopefully a little something every day even if its as mundane as a haiku.
