I hate writing. Seriously, I hate writing. I have gone through great lengths to not write. Ever since I was about 24 years old I hated writing. I had a boss that always told me I couldn't write. It was actually quite a surprise to me because before that I always did write. She would send me to writing classes and harp on the idea that I couldn't write. When I went for my MBA I took extra classes to avoid writing a thesis. Now over 25 years later I'm crippled by the thought of writing a 25,000 word dissertation and so I have not completed my doctorate work.
So why did I join this challenge? Because I need to write! Writing is an important part of thinking. I've learned through the beginning steps of writing my dissertation that writing allows one to think differently. Writing allows one's mind to explore other possibilities that just thinking alone will not do. I've also learned that I'm not a bad writer. I write like a I speak so my style might be different but it doesn't make me bad. My boss many years back did me a huge disservice by not recognizing I can write, it just wasn't her style of writing.
If you look at the first post in this blog it was 12/8/2016 when I vowed to start a blog because I knew how important it was both for my business and for establishing myself as an expert in my field. Now I'm really doing it! It's time. So, I'm taking on the challenge Paul Taubman has put in front of me and I will write a blog post each day this month to get in the habit of writing. I hope you will follow me and comment when you can. I'm a big believer that if you change your mindset, you change your reality. So, going forward.... I AM A WRITER!
