I used to make fun of people who blog. It came out my insecurity to write.
“I don’t think I can write an article everyday. I requires a lot of thinking, and I’m not confident about my hold over the language” I told my friend, Anish.
I was panting.
Because I always walk while taking calls. I looked at my blue-strapped watch and it read “17,894 Steps”. That’s 25% more than my daily target.
Anyways, coming back.
“Are you done” asked Anish.
“Dude, you’re overthinking”
“Business writing is all about conveying concepts in a simple way. You’re not here to write poems, or a literary pieces. Your job is to explain a concept succinctly.” he said
“Emm, I don’t think…” I started.
“check your mail” he interrupted.
He sent me a link to Dilbert’s article. I opened it immediately (I was a HUGE fan of Dilbert’s comic).
I read it.
And re-read it.
It changed the way I write. It will change yours too :).
