2017/01/30 On writing about daily life

Writing an entry in English every day has been so demanding that I have been somehow induced to work on this in a less and less burdensome way. That is, more often than not, I chose to write an article by citing other people's enties as a foil to mine. Comparison makes writing and thinking easier, for the counterpart serves as an object of criticizing and the criticism is made into my entry.

But looking back on the entries I wrote this way, it occurred to me that they are not intriguing. Moreover, I noticed myself more interested in those entries that concern the authors' daily experiences. Indeed, to carve out part of your life, write about it and make it a curiosity worth reading is in no way an easy task. But if it can be of service to readers, I must strive for it.
