This is my first post of my Writing 101.
I don’t know what was I thinking when filling out the participation form. Well, maybe I only want to improve my writing skill. Haven’t I got enough things on my plate? Well, of course, I have but it’s not me that won’t try something and get myself into trouble. Well, a rewarding trouble of course. Haha.
Almost 24 hours since I received the topic for this first day of writing 101, so pretty much I already failed the mission. In my defense, It was a pretty hectic day in the office and commuting time. I haven’t got the chance to make the 20 minutes needed for this challenge. Moreover, my kid is still sick. 😦
Well, too many reasons and complaints in a post already! Okay then, let’s continue with writing anything that flashed in my head.
For all this time I blog, I only write in English every Saturday to fulfill Blog English Club challenge published in English Friday blog. I think it is very limited if I really want to improve my English writing skill. Of course, I can write in English for my daily topics I want and for once I was thinking about turning this blog into a full English language blog, but I feel that it doesn’t suit this blog’s spirit. I still want to reach readers of this blog using my native language, Indonesian.
I love writing in Indonesian, it channels my emotion, thinking and whatever in my Mind perfectly. However, I also want to expand and connect with blogs from other countries as well, which definitely, I have to write in English. There was an option to write bilingual posts and I’ve tried several times. But I get bored easily, writing the same thing in two languages. They were too much effort for me, at least for now.
Lucky I found this Writing101 and hopefully I can join and submit my posts on time later on.
My 20 minutes is already up! Cheers!
