The writer in me just woke up!

The writer in me just woke up!


I am not a writer.


I don't know how many times I repeated those words to myself, although I write dozens of emails and memos every day at work. True, it is related to my profession (I am a civil engineer), but still, I write multi-page reports and am good at writing business documents. 

Well, then, why am I afraid to write a blog post?

The reason is a different type of audience. I write emails and memos to people I know or at least know their names. The social media audience is a mystery to me, and I don’t know what to expect.

Finally, the decision fell!

Now, I need to find a topic. Once again, I am facing a dilemma. I could write about the things that interest me, but I don't know will it be interesting to readers. I like math, new technologies, green tech, traditional building methods, but also things related to nature and cultural heritage.

So many ideas go through my mind. I came to the conclusion that all these topics have already been written. How to write about familiar things in a new way? I remembered the title of a documentary I recently watched, "The Unknown Known."  Should I write something like that? There is always some sort of new land to explore, and I see myself as an explorer.

For now, I don't want to use any writing tips. In fact, I don't like headlines with a number of ways to do something better. There are too many such posts, which frankly, annoy me.

After some hesitation, I decided!

My first ever blog post will be about what I was thinking before I started writing, the doubt about whether to write or not for the public.

Here it is! The ice has broken!

Regardless of any future comments, I am relieved that I have managed to write a few meaningful sentences (I hope they are). Then it occurred to me that maybe nobody will read my post, but I think disappointment is also a part of the writing process. After all, there is a first time for everything. I just have to wait and see how it goes.

Next time I will write about subjects close to my heart. Many new ideas are already emerging.

#43 Thanks, Preston. Me, too. :-) Your comment reflects how I see beBee, as a community in which we all build each other.
Although I have my own blog site, which I created as an experiment, I prefer to spend time on beBee because interactions with users and engagement are amazing.

bravo, make your own box to think out of. If your interested in what you say, empathy is possible, with out this human vulnerability given and received, it is a report. It is possible to be both, abstract writing is one size fits all.

@Lada 🏡 Prkic I am glad the writer awoke in you. What I enjoy about about beBee, it is the first platform where I get to interact with my readers better that any other platform. I enjoy the relationships and learning from others. I have my own blogsite. Even though their is a look of traffic, the only person that visitors can interact with is me. So, I feel that is a reason few people comment on articles there. Here is totally different. This is a community in which we all build each other.
