Yesterday at work I got to do some… well, not exactly creative writing, but writing that was more creative than usual. Our marketing department it starting a blog–I guess they heard it’s what kids are doing these days?!–and I get to be one of the occasional contributors.
Yesterday I wrote my first post for them, and it reminded me of how much fun it can be to write with fewer constraints. I got to use a more playful, casual tone when taking about a new feature and I didn’t have to worry about getting all the technical details perfectly documented. So novel! (Actually it was more in the 50-word story length, nowhere near a novel.)
Anyway, it reminded me of how much I love to write and that I do have this poor, neglected blog that only gets a couple posts a month these days. I’m sorry, little blog! I still love you. I know the only reader left is my mom, but I’m not giving up on you.
I hope we can see more of each other in the future.
