I, Bob Gramatges, would like to consider myself a writer again. The reason that I have stopped using the word ‘writer’ to describe myself is simple: I haven’t been writing enough lately.
To remedy this, I have tasked myself to document my reality, express my feelings and share my truth on this blog in order to remain a card-carrying writer (and now, blogger, as it turns out).
Now, I’m certainly no authority on the subject, but I do feel that writers should write, painters should paint and poets should… well, poets should come up with a word to describe the act of writing poetry. But that’s beside the point.
What I really mean to say (or write, rather) is that creativity and self-expression are important enough to be prioritized on a daily basis.
I don’t encounter enough originality in my daily life to be happy with the status quo. And even though these words may not impact everyone I encounter, they will impact me when I encounter them.
So, in reality, what I am trying to express is that my writing is essentially meant to make others more interesting.
Humor aside, I truly believe that we create our own reality in life and that our reality dictates our destiny.
As someone who is constantly searching for purpose in life, I have come to the conclusion that I need to write in order to fulfill my destiny.
Therefore, in order for this blog to serve its purpose, I will only give myself one rule and that is to write – write often and write honestly.
Now all I have to do is keep following my own rule.
Okay, enough about rules. God knows there are enough of those to go around.
