Write or do? That’s a question I’ve been tossing around in my head for a while.
Write or Do?
On Friday, sitting with three blogger friends (and having a great time), I listened with interest to them discussing their WIPs. It was wonderful to hear how they are attempting to piece their novels together. But I declared to them that I had given up on writing a book. My argument was that there are too many books out there.
I’ve always wanted to have at least one book published. Somewhere down the line, I lost interest and decided to focus only on my blogs. Then last year, I began to work part time for Divya Disha and slowly see myself being drawn into working full time, for a while at least.
If you would not be forgotten,
as soon as you are dead and rotten,
either write things worth reading,
or do things worth the writing.
– Benjamin Franklin
So write or do?
I’m not sure if it is the experiences of the last few months – loss of many kinds, that has led me to want invest more time in building living legacies. What do I mean by that? I’d rather invest of my time and skills in people than in words.
Please don’t get me wrong. Our writing can and does make a difference. But perhaps at this particular stage in life, I’m looking at more visible signs of making a difference?
Am I making sense to you? I’m barely making sense to myself. But then that’s what musings are all about, aren’t they?
I’d love to hear what you think.
