It seems that every writer or writing resource I’ve come across in my freelance hunting and prepping (because feeding off each other is most of what we do) has a blog or says you have to write one, if you want to be a real writer.
I could complain that seems rigid and conformist and “down with the man!” but really I just hate being told what to do.
Everything gets better the more you do it, and since reality is digital now, scribbling in my precious notebooks has become somewhat of a waste of time. (Oh man, that hurts to read back to myself)
According to the internet anyway. I could never give it up fully. At this point I’m pretty sure collecting notebooks is just one of my many weird little obsessions in life. Nor do I think writing things down will ever become obsolete, I don’t think it’s humanly possible to give it up now that we have it. It’s awful being an optimist.
