Just write. Don't be afraid to mess around. Or mess up.

October 20th, 2013, 9am

It was 6.7°C with few clouds. The breeze was gentle.

Maybe what this sort of writing allows is a certain freedom to write and post without embarrassment, rather than have to subject everything to the rigor of craft and structure.

(But surely rigor is precisely the point: Life is all around you, and the process of recording it, of pinning it down, requires a certain discrimination, a discipline.)

But the devil’s advocate in me pipes up: Perhaps that sort of discipline isn’t always necessary. Because life doesn’t work like that at all, without the artificial frame that “real” writers put around it.

Maybe all you really need is a few words and an image in that instant.

Must see! Charming, spacious and immaculate. Newly remodeled, granite counter top, utilities included, walk-in closet, views of the Bay. Great location, close to restaurants, MUNI, Safeway, 280 and 101, etc. Okay, a bio for real: http://about.me/benito.vergara
