I remember my dad having an old typewriter. I liked the feel of typing on that machine because you thought very carefully about what you were going to write. You didn’t want to make any mistakes. The oldskool typewriter keyboard brings back the charm of this philosophy to present times.
Write, Bi-atch, write!
I will let you in a dirty, little secret of mine; I always hated to write. Don’t get me wrong; I love words and the sentences they form, I love how the succession of those form books and become literature or poetry. I love journalistic pieces and opinions too. But I’ve always been a bit jealous about people who could write, people who make a point in just some well structured sentences. It’s something I can’t. At least that’s what I kept telling myself. But I think I just don’t got it right.
Writing is a process and writing should be a habit. You grow in it. Well, my new years resolution is simple. I’ll write 3 blog posts a week, starting now.
I recently blogged on the tremendously intense StartupBus Europe experience while I was on the bus and also in retrospective (in Dutch).
You will find out that this blog has a new-found focus: identity. I’ll come back on this in a separate post.
I will also try to include more personal stuff. I’ve done it this way for a couple of years via twitter and I tend to like it as such.
Hope you read me. And… Hpp Nw Yr!
