~~ My Writing My Thoughts ~~

  Writing is simply crystallized thought. Thought is like water which flows unceasingly, without form and cannot be grasped fully. Writing pulls thoughts together, gives it structure and presents it to the world in graspable form. It is like crystallizing water by freezing it. It becomes well ordered, structured and observable.

Understanding that I am simply crystallizing my thoughts when I write enables me to write faster, because I know that I’m just putting together what is already there.

I love to read and I love to write. There is so much I have to read because there is so much I want to know. Even when I eliminate all the lesser books in order to read only the core ones, I still find myself spending a lot of time reading them.

But I also need to find time to write. My desire is to create immense value by giving knowledge of the most powerful kind to the world. I began to feel that my reading was taking time from my writing and my writing would take time from my reading. Both are very important to me.

The problem was when I try to stop reading as much and focus on writing instead, I seem to become short of ideas. Writing became more difficult, slower and tedious. But when I stopped my writing and allowed myself to freely read, ideas and inspiration came flowing to me and I could write easily and powerfully. This gave me the understanding the amount of writing I could do was proportionally related to the amount of reading I had been doing.

When I realized that in order to write more, I had to read lots more, I felt jubilant because that is exactly what I wanted to do and enjoy doing. I can spend my time acquiring more knowledge for myself and also giving knowledge to the world. That is so perfect.

At other times, I just begin writing about an idea I have in my head without knowing what I should name it yet. I might have been writing down paragraphs of inspiration in some other places and then at some moment, I found a way to fit them all together in one place. This is the process called clustering. It is the ultimate solution to writers block. I might then come up with a name for the article, but I would keep making changes to it until I am satisfied with the right one. Some of my best writings take form that way too.

Writing is a way to order your thoughts. Ordering your thoughts is the key to ordering your life and everything else in it. The more you write and the more you improve your writing, the better a communicator you will become. The more you are able to order your mind, the more you are able to communicate that order to other people. All communication is mind to mind. Your thinking is influenced by your reading of other people’s writings.

Very articulately put. I like the idea of writing being "crystallized thought". I also enjoy writing down my thoughts, though in writing them, I often come to the realization that I'm completely insane. Nevertheless, I appreciated your thoughts here.
