I have a blog post to write for the Fulbright Program. It reminds me that, other than writing poetry/spoken word, I (we) don’t really get opportunities to do creative/thoughtful /non-science writing as scientists unless we actively seek it.
I’ve been putting this off – because there’s no deadline lol. But writing is a craft that needs to be practiced and I find myself practicing through real life scenarios (… writing my speech/spoken-word for the march for science, personal statements for grad school, blog/vlogs, etc.).
While a lot of my motivation for sharing my journey is because it’s a form of expression and because I’m a social person… there are times when I don’t feel like writing (like now) that I have to remind myself that creative writing is just as important as science, in fact, I’m sure the two complement each other.
