Dave Winer discusses the power of writing as it is an exercise in thinking. Dave Winer is one of the creators of the blogosphere. I started blogging 12 years ago using one of his first blog products, Radio UserLand.
Which reminds me of other good readings about why we (should) write:
- On Writing – Stephen King
- Learning a Trade – Reynolds Price
- Thinking on Paper – V.A. Howard and J.H. Barton
Writing is purpose-driven thinking. Writing is hard work. Writing can be exegesis for the curious and an occlusion of reality for the escapist.
Here’s to good thoughts, good writing, and a mastery of the outputs of her amygdala!
