The desire to write grows with writing.
Once I met a professional writer. Having 20+ novels published, she must be quite famous in Indonesia’s fiction writing scene. Our rendezvous point was a book store. After we had sat down on cozy, tiny couches in the corner, she said, “Please don’t ask me how to write. I hate that question.”
I was stunned.
Recently I had an odd encounter with a long-time-forgotten habit that I thought I should not have done any longer.
For more than 2 years I have been intrigued by the tee I got from WordCamp Indonesia 2010. It has a line on its back, “Code is poetry.”
On many websites I found, “Coders write.”
Huh? What the heck are they talking about?
Blogging is easy. Blogging regularly is not. Fortunately, there is Trello for that. It is a project/task management application created by great folks in Fog Creek, and it has helped me publish one post a day on this blog. Here is how I use Trello for blogging regularly.
One thing I learn from being a journalist is what I believe every writer and blogger should also learn: Keeping a notebook. At. All. Times.
I created this blog on one simple purpose: To practice my English writing. Over time, however, the art of blogging entices me as well.
An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea.
So goddamn true! *glazes over 2 scheduled post and 22 incomplete drafts on my WordPress Dashboard*
