Here’s the quote:
"Daniel Boorstin, the former librarian of Congress, used to rise at 5 each
morning and write for two hours before going into the office.
"I write to
discover what I think," he explained. "After all, the bars aren’t open that
Mr. Boorstin’s morning sessions were even more valuable than he
realized. Writing not only clarifies what you already know; it is also an
astonishingly effective way to learn something new."
Its so very true. When people ask me why I blog, the answer is that it helps me organize my thoughts, memorialize them, work them out.
In short, to discover what I think.
