Isn't easy to get the job done when someone already gave you the content? but what about when YOU need to write it yourself? This is something that has been one of my nightmares for a long time and I really need to improve my writing skills, I can't wait anymore.

For the last 12 months, I decided to reinvent myself as a designer and I've learned many new things but writing. I've created many excuses as "I don't have time" or "English is not my first language" which is bullshit once I speak it fluently. 

So you must be asking yourself what made me to finally dedicate myself to learn. I'm working on my portfolio and when I have to describe something or myself I always try to avoid and use some other text (copy and paste) for temporary use. Today I was looking some portfolios of incredible designers I admire, I noticed one thing they all have in common and it is the talent to tell stories and describe things with words, not just graphics and beautiful interfaces. I said to myself that I need to break this barrier if I want to become great at what I do. Today I'm going to be my first step toward writing.

I hope I won't stop after a couple of days and honestly, I would love some pressure and feedback from you guys here.

See you tomorrow.
