You know what I like about this blog? It helps me become a better writer. Okay, if you look back at my posts, most of them are simply references to other articles. Going forward I am going to try to write some more, even if I only reference other articles.
I have two weaknesses when it comes writing. The first is that I write like I am making a list. It seems to me, but maybe not others, that the writing is stilted. I will write like an engineer listing out things I have observed during an inspection or an analysis, or listing out steps in a calculation. A previous boss of mine hated this about my writing, he said it did flow. He was right, it didn’t. The second weakness is that I get bored easily or have a short attention span, I am not sure which it is. As I write this I am thinking to myself, “How much more do I have to write to get my point across?”
Hopefully, I can at least address my first weakness in this process. I suspect that someone who reads this might say, this guy is a horrible writer, he has more problems than these. So be it. I am looking to improve any way I can.
