“I? I do not write much, sir.”
“No, sir. Oh, if you mean scribbling, I do scribble some, for amusement.”
— Mark Twain, A Curious Experience
My inspiration for scribbling comes from what I believe animates most diarists: to organize and clarify my thinking, to preserve memories, to chronicle events, to tell stories, to hone my craft, to record personal reminisces, to note interesting or witty things, to jot down thoughts & observations from my readings, travel, on current affairs, or any other idea or impression that happens to stir my heart, mind, or imagination enough to put hands to keyboard.
