Daily Write Up – 01/18/2016

So often, we fuss over our writing tools. We need the right pen with the right paper so that the experience sings. And yet, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr wrote his famed Letters From a Birmingham Jail not in a fancy notebook with a fancy pen or pencil. According to Wikipedia, Dr. King wrote this letter that changed history in the margins of newspapers and they had to reassemble them.

I am all for a pleasant writing experience, sure, but what we cannot forget is that these are tools to accomplish a job – recording our thoughts that can change the world. I’m challenged today to do less fussing and more writing. May we all be challenged in this way.
