As Sid thinketh
ನಮಸ್ಕಾರ / Hey
Super excited to kickstart the writing journey (again?) finally after consistent procrastination of setting up my email newsletter.
This is a tiny experiments in public (to keep me accountable)
When we write, we externalize our thoughts as words and our eyes read them as they are. It is like a mirror that shows us the way we are. It does feel a little naked on the screen or paper.
The way I look at it is: To clean up (take a shower) our thoughts we must undress first. The nakedness is a part of the process.
The process of writing makes us think better. The process of thinking makes us write better. It works both ways. Most of the times, till the pen hits the sheet, we don’t know what to write about. When the pen flows, the ideas also flow along.
I’ve been actively attempting to break the shackle of my writer’s block. Words are nothing but thoughts made visible. But even before the thoughts are made visible, we get paralysed by the blank canvas and we give up.
Throughout the years, I have written my thoughts and experiences in Apple notes, which has significantly helped me in attaining a better sense of direction and clarity. By sharing my writing in a public, I aim to remain consistent in my efforts. Moreover, I look forward to chronicling my adventures on this planet so that one day, my niece, Lily, can read my stories.
