Why do I want to write

Hi, my name is Bruno Jacinto and I like to write. I like to talk and take pictures as well. If such a thing exists, this could be my introduction at a Writing Addicted Meeting.

Actually, I would like to say that I enjoy communicating. Writing, talking, and even taking pictures are just ways to tell others what you think, feel, and think. It isn’t a bad addiction even though it can be addicting.

The world would be a better place if all the people had this addiction.

I tend to think a lot, overthink even, and I tend to write a lot. It’s not as strange as you might think, an IT Manager who writes a lot. It’s not as strange as you might think, on the social networks, and even on other places. The Portuguese version of this blog is one example, but it is rarely used today.

Writing allows me to structure a thought in a way that talking cannot. The process of creating a story, the back and forth of the words until they reach the translation that I had in mind. The process of moving a thought into a story.

This step is what makes the difference between technical writing, which I mainly use for work, and other types of writing. When you write to convey an idea, you are transforming the idea into a story.

The most pleasant part of the process is the creative part. It’s not just for writing to someone else, it’s also for me. I like to read things I’ve written years ago and see what I thought at that time, what changed, and how I tried to pass that message on.

This is the reason I decided to write here now. Always for me first, but also for all that in an accident happens to pass by this place. I choose to write it in English for the unconscious dream of reaching the maximum number of people.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me on any social media, or even here, and be aware that any writing that I make reflects what I think now. It can change in the future, but the memory of what I thought at any given time is more important than being right. It might be confusing, but that’s how humans work.
