Addicted to Ink (or HTML, Pixel, Font)

Several times a day I pick up the pen, well poise at the keyboard, to write something for tomorrow.

As a journalist, I write with a sense of immediacy.  As a writer, I write with a sense of timelessness.  Writing forward takes practice, patience and more practice and more patience.

And so, I’m training myself to write and curbing my addiction to instant gratification somewhat disguised behind two blogs, a Facebook, LinkedIn, and a Twitter.  I’m writing pieces for tomorrow.  At least, I try to.  I find myself writing with the best of intentions and instead of saving it, I post it and link it and tweet about posting and linking it.
