This year, I’m rediscovering writing. Writing creatively, that is, and using writing to explore and understand the world around me. Last week, I decided to stop pursuing jobs, and start pursuing a vocation. I woke up on a Friday and instead of wanting to go to work, I wanted to write. I wanted to sit down at my desk at 6 am, coffee brewing, fingers on the keyboard, ready to go. I didn’t want to go into any office or go to any meeting – I simply wanted to write.
