Decided to start a blog and want to explore why.
Clear writing is clear thinking
Writing is often glamourised. To be a writer is to be artistic, soulful and cool
For most of my life, I’ve wanted to be a writer. However every time I conjure the urge to write, the question of what to write about comes up.
I have nothing to say most of the time because I don’t feel confident enough to say I know something for certain. To write you need something valuable to say.
Or do you?
Is it possible to simply write for yourself without a need for an audience.
Write about what you don’t know
Can I simply write to form opinions? To inform myself. To become more articulate, thoughtful and precise when thinking. To convey my opinions, beliefs and ideas. More importantly to expose them to critical and rational analysis. I want to change my mind on the basis of good arguments. On rationality.
This is what I hope to explore. Let me pretend to be a writer on the internet. To virtually shout into my pillow. If you happen to hear it, I hope you don’t think me a madman.
