When I get bored,1 I write. For most of the time, I don’t care about the content. I just write.
I love to write on iPad. Editorial, Byword, iA Writer, Daedalus Touch… You name it; I have it. Now, I’m writing in 1Writer, which recently got an awesome update. Sometimes I hook up my iPad with a keyboard; sometimes, like now, I just type on the screen.
Speaking of writing on iPad, I love new technology, but I wouldn’t call myself a tech savvy. I’m far from being qualified. I barely know anything about programming. I can’t even make an AppleScript by myself. However, all those rocket-science-look things don’t scare me off. I love playing with them. I set up this blog on Scriptogr.am, a Dropbox based blog service. With zero knowledge, I tweaked the site’s HTML and CSS by guessing, trusting my gut, and searching online (thanks, kind people on the internet), trying to satisfy my aesthetic as much as I can.
And speaking of this blog, I’ve never promoted it—I don’t even posted links on Twitter. The reason? I’m not sure. Maybe I just don’t feel like to.
Pretty pointless, huh? Isn’t my kind of writing a waste of time, time that can be used for something more important in life? But who can say for sure what are the “more important things” in life? I know I can’t.
So write, I do.
