Last night I realized that some people "think out loud" that is to really figure out an idea or concept they have to say it out loud to figure out how things all fit together.
I'm not one of these people. For me "thinking out loud" is putting something down on paper. Or typing it up. Either way seems to work. I'll do this at work all the time - when trying to explain a particularly complicated concept to a coworker, I'll reach for a dry erase marker and whiteboard nearly every time.
Drawing something out or writing it down makes it apparent how all the pieces fit together.
I need to get back to journaling & writing. I'll post online as I come up with stuff worth sharing. I'm not expecting to have a set schedule for posting, but we'll see where this goes.
