I meet with my mentor to talk about what I am thinking of. One day I talked about wriring this and technical blog. 

He asked me "do you have fun for writing?" 

I was mumbling and hesitated to say "yes" as well as "no."

After a half second, I started to formulate what I thought of writing. 

I said "I do not think I am good at wiring. But I know it is important of me and would like to get better at it. At the same time, I continued to write for 200 days in a writing community (=200Wad) and 98 days for a technical blog. This means I am getting to like it. Typically, I judge whether I like an activity or not based on continuation. Especially nobody told me, no strong incentive exists, but if I continued, it meas I like it."

After that mentering session, I am still wondering whether I like writing or not, and what I like about. 

Here are what I like writing about: 

  • Trace: I can see my thoughts in a non-volatility way. I recognize how much I forget by looking back my writing. It also seems the time to talk to myself when I read my writing. 
  • Open the door: since I am always in a mode to find some topics to write, I tend to be more open to anything. Also, my brain seems to FIFO (First In First Out) so if I output something, I feel like I can take input more :)
  • Progress: I can see some progress by not only words and # of posts but also my sensitivity on writing or tolerance of revising. I gradually accept revising the sentence I wrote.  


I am pretty certain all good writing starts from bad writing – Anne Lamott


What do you like about writing?

    @hiro Thanks for sharing.
    I do have fun. I started using this service yesterday as a fun challenge to myself. You know, "If not now, than when" kind of moment. So i made a promise to write 200 every day, registered here and just start writing. It feels like I have so many things I want to share and this is just the right place to start.

    @hiro You are entering a virtuous cycle where writing more implies enjoying it more, which makes you write more :P The more you iterate through the loop, the funnier it gets.

      @basilesamel Yep, having fun is a critical factor for continuation.
