A Powerful Search Mechanism

Writing is a powerful search mechanism, and one of its satisfactions is to come to terms with your life narrative.
— William Zinsser

It took me way too long to start writing consistently. The reason is simple: I thought I had to have the answer before I began filling the page. Wrong.

Zinsser is right, “Writing is a powerful search mechanism.” It's the action I take to discover what I have to say. Writing is where I go to think. It's where I go to learn more about myself.

Don't be afraid. If you haven't already, just start. Here’s the pattern: Think. Write. Rethink. Rewrite. Repeat.
