A couple of my colleagues at work today, suggested that I should consider doing some professional writing – they said that I write with emotion. This was not the first time that somebody came up with that suggestion after reading some of my writing here. I’ve had several other people tell me that I do not write like an engineer and that I write well.
I would have you know that engineers write very well. Engineers tend to be fairly explicit and specific in their writing because engineers need to communicate well in order to convey their concepts and work to other engineers. So, they cannot help but learn to communicate very well, in writing.
That said, creative writing is not really our forte as what we do is generally technical writing.
Now, back to this notion of me doing some creative writing. I have to admit that the thought has crossed my mind many times. Unfortunately, I need a reason to write and I have yet to find a topic or cause that is compelling enough to motivate me and just like every other thing that I do in life, I need a reason to write.
Penning my thoughts down on paper will only be interesting if there was a reason to do so.
