I Think, Therefore I Write.

Somebody asked me recently, ‘whats your passion?’ I usually hate these sort of high energy questions but as I’m doing my fair share of soul searching at the moment it actually made me think. 

My first thought was writing; and then I delved a little deeper. I enjoy whats behind the writing, its the thinking thats my passion. I’m constantly questioning and analysing our world and how we perceive things. These ideas and opinions rattle around in my head until I get it out, on paper, so to speak.

I came to the conclusion writing is a tool of thought; and a powerful one if you use it right. Its not the sentence structure or correct use of grammar in writing that floats my boat; its the concise expression of a thought from one mind, being able to be transferred to the thought of another mind.

When we write expressively, its our words alone that must create an image, provoke a thought or render commonality with our reader. To invoke feelings and opinions in others with the words we write is an extraordinary gift, one we must cherish.

    Writing is a gift, though it can be cultivated. I keep a little book with inspirational quotes I come across–Mostly they are “concise expressions of a thought.” Thanks for visiting me and for the follow!
