I've been thinking about what it means to be a writer and how I don't self-describe as one. I might write but writing doesn't occur to me naturally. I am a thinker. I think about lots and lots of things. Some of them I even remember to write down. Once of the tasks of this journal is for me to better be able to express those thoughts in words, sentences, etc. that others will understand. It can be quite difficult at times; sometimes the thoughts just won't congeal. Other times, they are so myriad that in trying to force coherency on them, I lose all the meaning that I saw. I've known these things in the past but I'd forgotten. It's good to remind myself of them.
