On writing

"Writing clarifies your thinking. Thoughts and feelings are nebulous happenings in our mind holes, but writing forces us to crystalize those thoughts and put them in a logical order."- Leo Babauta on Why You Should Write Daily.

Writing has always been a big part of my life. When I was younger I could spend the whole night writing novels and poems. Most of them stayed as drafts, I still have a bunch of them backed up on some old hardrive. But as you get older, with work taking up most of your mental capability, it gets harder to find the energy.

But I have managed to post something daily for almost a hundred days on this blog. Mostly just short notes and links to other peoples content, but it has still forced me to think one extra round. So I think it is time to stop making excuses and get my priorities straight. And I will start with following the advices on Zenhabits.
