I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

Write sentences, what I’m thinking, because I want too

Tonight I came across two blog posts in Reed­er as I was lying in bed catch­ing up on my feeds and watch­ing the For­mula One.

The first was all about writ­ing. The author coined a phrase that is very remin­is­cent of Michael Pollan’s approach to food.

Write sen­tences, not too many, mostly active.

It riffs nicely off

Eat food, not too much, mostly plants

Some­thing which I’m try­ing to stick too but not very good at. It might have con­nec­ted with me because it’s famil­i­ar, but I think it goes a bit deep­er than that. I’ve been try­ing to write more lately. I want to post a lot more reg­u­larly than I do, but often feel that I’m not con­trib­ut­ing enough to war­rant a post. 

The second seemed to know what I am think­ing and hit me between the eyes.

Just blog, if that’s all you want to do.

This week­end I down­loaded and installed Ghost on my Mac. I’ve been look­ing at mov­ing away from Word­Press for a while and finally took the time to look into one of the altern­at­ives. But really it’s just a dis­trac­tion. I have a fully func­tion­al blog here. I’d like to change the design of it, but I don’t need too. If I want to blog more, I should do it. So I’m going to try and write sen­tences about what I’m think­ing, because I want too. That seems to be a good way of look­ing at things. I will still slowly work on a new design for this place, but I’m going to do my utmost to make sure that it doesn’t stop me from post­ing more.
