Why is writing so hard.

Published on December 03, 2017

Goodness. Gracious. Why is writing so hard! Since re-launching my site, I’ve set a personal goal to write at least once a week. I gave myself a soft-pass this week, as I sorta missed my goal by a bit. But I was busy!

And there we go with the excuses. Lol. So, I decided to spend today (Sunday) trying to write something. Anything! And I still couldn’t. I wrote about 5 half-posts today. All of them comprised mashed-together barely English sentences and bullet points.

Writing is hard, guys.

But I knew this. I knew writing would be hard. I don’t necessarily think it’s a writer’s block thing. It just isn’t something that comes naturally to me - at all. But you know what does? Drawing. Or more specifically, doodling (especially on scrap paper).

On Friday, I was inspired to do a doodle of myself and share it on the Twitters.

I’ve never drawn myself in that style before, but I really like it. So much in fact, that I’ve drawn and shared several more.

I’m sure it’s a practice thing, which is what I’m going to try to do with writing. Heck, I forced myself to write… whatever post this is.

So here’s to more posts, and definitely more doodles!

What have I committed to? Cheers!

P.S. If you have any tips or feedback, please feel free to send em my way!

Oh wow, talk about a facelift! Black & pink have always been one of my favourite color combos. Not to mention, I’ve always wanted a dark site!

What it means to be a Design Engineer

Recently, I had a catch-up chat with a product designer colleague from work (his name is Buzz and he is awesome). One of the things we talked about was the various things I did at Help Scout.

This year, I started mentoring at Out of Office Hours. I’ve had multiple sessions, and one very interesting thing I’ve noticed is that every single person I’ve spoken to has said…
