A Call To Write
If you read, you can write.
This week’s tone is a bit different. I started writing because I thought there should be more voices, more viewpoints, and more faces in the conversation.
I don’t pretend I know everything, nor do I pretend my newsletter is the one stop shop for anything. I don’t write because it’s a money making machine. I write because it helps me organize my thoughts, get feedback, start conversations, but most importantly, it’s something I enjoy.
Benn has called on his readers in a similar way. Pedram hinted at it in his latest post that wasn’t really about writing at all. But I’d like to make a call of my own: minority readers, you also have a voice. Of course, it’s much easier to make time for things that are part of your job, and for many of us, that isn’t writing. For the past 5 months, I’ve spent the first 45 minutes of every work day writing. It’s hard. But, if you’ve had the inkling and desire to start, what better time than now?
At some point (maybe soon!), other projects might just get too top of mind for me to continue writing weekly. However, this is my promise: I will always write. Maybe not weekly, maybe not monthly, but the point is, I will always write.
If you’d like feedback on a draft or to chat about writing, shoot me a message.
