Ben wrote a wonderful post suggesting, reminding, that everyone should blog, should write. I always connect, and have done so for long, with this specific sentiment.
There’s no such thing as writing too much: your voice is important, your perspective is different, and you should put it out there.
This reminded me of a post I had written that shared a similar sentiment — we all can, and should, write. This particular passage that I had written, unfortunately, still holds true for many.
It’s saddening to see people resist the efforts to pen the words they think of. They go after what others have written, beautiful nevertheless, but at the cost of it being not real, fake. They underestimate the power of conveying one’s own feelings in whichever way possible. The words, their structure won’t matter much then. And that is one way one can start writing.
