I love to write, but over the past ten years, I convinced myself that I didn’t have time. Oh sure, I wrote “professionally” as it is a major part of my job — requirements documents, business plans, product presentations, technical manuals, and the like — but I never wrote anything beyond the necessary. One morning in May of 2011, I tried to write a heartfelt letter. It became very clear that I could no longer write well. Dismayed, I set out to correct this problem. And so here you are, reading my very bad attempts to once again become a competent writer.
