300th post : some thoughts on writing
I would like to take the opportunity to share with you some thoughts I recently had on writing and the experience it represents.
This reflection will bring me to Art, Jeet Kun Do and to another subject which is more close to my favorite topic here : energy.
Writing is an art, the harder you work on it, the better your style is. This also explains why Literature is regarded as an Art.
When I begun this blog, I knew my style was too heavy. My sentences were too long and it was compromising comprehension.
Now, I think that it is much lighter, more efficient, at least it is the feedback I had from some of you.
This brings me to another comparison with martial arts. I always liked watching movies with Bruce Lee and his martial art, Jeet Kun Do.
One scene that comes to my mind is the fight against Chuck Norris in the Way of the Dragon.
Bruce Lee in this scene seems so light, so effortless compared to his opponent which gives the impression to be much more heavier, much more slower.
And there, we hit something that sounds familiar : efficiency. As one should decrease his/her energy consumption, one should improve his/her writing style…
I hope you appreciated these little thoughts. I have other articles similar to this one that will combine my interest in astronomy and sustainable development. So for this and for much more, stay tuned !
