A mess of first thoughts

For years I have wanted to write. I associate writing with intelligence. I understand that writing is just one outlet of creativity but it is one that I have wanted to be a large part of my life. I love to write when I have something to say. I guess I just struggle with wether or not what I have to say is worth saying. I also understand that the simple act of writing is what leads to better writing. This is a really neat project and I hope that I can keep up at it. 750 words is actually a lot. I can not remember the last time I set out to write just for the sake of writing. I usually end up writing a blog when I should be working on something else.

I have often avoided writing. My website Dailyappshow.com is a prime example of me avoiding writing. Video is where it is at right now because people are to lazy to read. It is a shame because reading is one of the best disciplines out there.

One thing I really want to learn this next year is how to develop for mobile platforms. I need to learn something. I feel that I know a lot but do not actually know something well. I am a professional in several areas because I know enough. I am tired of knowing enough, I want to be a voice to an industry or have all of the answers because I am a leading authority in something.

This website concept is really interesting. I wonder if my writing is stored on their site or as part of the login. Perhaps I should take this challenge but be writing in a Google Doc or in Evernote.

Evernote is an amazing platform. I really need to learn how I can implement that into my life more. I used to take so many notes before mobile platforms were available. Now I just forgo taking notes because I don’t have anything to write with and I forget to use the app. How ironic.

I am sitting here waiting for the Android SDK to install. I am having issues even getting the test app setup in Titanium. I get frustrated because of these issues. Developing an app for a mobile platform is not like creating a website. There are so many web resources there for the using where-as with developing an app there is not much available. The services that are available are really expensive because this space is so new. Sooner or later the price will become more affordable and there will be resources to pull from to help with my projects.

I have so many ideas running through my head that it is often hard to concentrate. Even this first 750 word writing project is a mental vomit onto the keyboard. Even now as I write this I wonder to myself if I should be doing this on a Tumblr or WordPress blog so it can be public. The last time I thought it would be neat to have a blog for the sake of writing I failed at it. I don’t even know if I have it up anymore. I think I deleted it because there wasn’t any decent content that I had generated. I need to understand that not everything has to be good content when it comes to my personal stuff. I can just write for the sake of writing.

I can’t believe that 2011 is almost over. 2012 just sounds so far in the future though it is now 15 days away.

The holidays are always added stress for me. So many expectations and people that want you to be around. I want to be around but know that I can not be in all locations at once. This makes me want to be in none of them at all. I guess the thing that annoys me the most is that I have not been able to start any family traditions of my own or enjoy my little family unit on a holiday by ourselves with out worrying about what someone else is up to. I don’t know if that is selfish of me or not?

I was beginning to wonder if I would make it to 750 words or not. I really enjoyed writing and I think I am going to keep this up. I am not sure if I will do this here or take it public. Anyhow, this was fun.
