Parent post: Meta-skill

I was always a fan of communication. But I was more fascinated by spoken communication than writing.

I loved watching courtroom drama movies and shows. Loved to watch debates. The ability to express one's thoughts on the fly and still getting your point across is an art.  

When I started writing here, I didn't have any grand expectations. I didn't see all the things that @basilesamel mentions in this post. I can see it clearly now. Most underrated skill indeed. 

I get now that writing isn't just about the final piece that is produced. Though it is a big part.
The process of selecting a topic, picking the words, the emphasis, the pause, the intro and the conclusion - this is allowing us (WRITERS) get better at the art of communication... Meta skill!

After 141 days of writing every day, I experience things differently.
An experience is something that is either post worthy or not.
That means, almost 100% of all the experiences that I take notice of is documented. I take the time to capture my feeling and put it down so I can always remember it. 

I was one of the people that underestimated writing as a skill. 

Thank you @basilesamel

    @keni I love the pace that writing imposes. Speaking may be faster and easier, but writing allows thoughtful clarity and polished consideration.
    Thanks for sharing.

      @mikebyrnes - I wouldn't say speaking is easier for me but it has the potential to make more of an impact if perfected.

      Few people here have discussed having a 200wordsaDay type idea for spoken words as a beautiful idea.
      @basilesamel - Maybe that can be your next business? You know most of us will just follow you at your next venture.

      @keni Some people reached out to me to adapt the concept to speech, but it never took off. Thank you for having my back :P

      @basilesamel - Yes it is powerful... And unexpectedly so. It made 2019 special for me.
