Tirelessly writing — Day 1

I began writing on medium on 25 July, if I remember correctly, and continued the tradition until I arrived in Singapore, for my second year at graduate school. I thought, I will write everyday, and then thought maybe skipping a day or two is fine., and finally, realised that it’s been more than a week since I wrote last on medium. So here I am, beginning from day 1 again, to continue a tradition, that I’ve been told if I can stick on to for at least 30 days, will become a routine like brushing my teeth at night. I shall take that person’s word for it. Few things, a note to myself, and to the scanty readers through tags I might have sometimes.

Why am I writing? To be clear, that this is what I really want to do. Life is too short to be spent on doing things you dislike. I might also have amnesia when I grow old, and this blog might help in reliving some memories. No, this is not a journal. I will write daily, mostly of subjects which inspire me to write. I will not make it a personal narration of sorts.

Whom am I writing for? For anyone who finds the time and interest in reading my posts. For a reference, you might want to check what I have written earlier to develop an idea.

Where do I write from? Mostly from countries where Medium is not restricted. This does not include Malaysia, where it is restricted. When there, I will save a post to publish later.

Will I share on all my social media portals? On Twitter yes. On Facebook, no. Not for the time being.

I will write tirelessly in the fatigue of writing for myself. One article, one day.
