Do you write ? If not, what is stoping you?

Hello and Happy Monday!

As I mentioned before, I want to get to know you people! And while I was brainstorm things to write about, this question came to mind.

Do you write? If yes, why did you get started?
If not, would you like to? What stops you?

Maybe we can help :)

I'll echo what Pachi says. I think that writing can be intimidating, but at the end of the day, it, like any other skill, is something that people only get better at by doing it. We are here to help, and if there is something any of The Relicans can do to make it easier for you to capture some of your thoughts, questions, or learned knowledge in writing to share with others, let us know!

We'll get better together!

I guess I have been writing for my entire life. I always liked reading and I had lots of Barbie dolls growing up. I don't know why, but someday I decides to write stories about their lives. It was all fairytale-ish with lots of magic, fairies and mermaids, at first. I guess I started writing these stories when I was about 8 or so, and I stopped when I was about 15 or so. The stories got more intricate with lots of characters and events going on, and it was something that made me very happy for a long time. I stopped playing with my dolls long before I stopped writing about them. My point is, I have no ideia why I started it, but I liked it, and a lot.
So now I'm in collage and I enjoy writing scientific articles very much. I think that's something that can help me a lot to get a job, of a masters degree and be some kind of academic achievement that'll do something for my career one day.
Lately, for your influence of some wonderful people (Pachi included) I've discovered dev.to and the relicans, two wonderful platforms for sharing knowledge and I also started to watch a lot o livestreamns, what got me really motivated to produce some content of my own, and maybe help people. So now I'm struggling with finding some cool topics to talk about, but I hope I find something useful to share with people. Thanks a lot for showing me this way!

Yes! I write but not that frequently. It all started after I made my profile in Dev.to and I saw how people engage in writing stuff they know or they have learnt something recently and from there onwards I started to think that probably I should also start writing.

How did you get started?

Similar to you actually. I went to Codeland where Ali Spintel gave a talk about blogging and inspired me to create an account on dev.to to share my learning Journey.

I love writing, so I am very excited about having this new space here at therelicans.com

Muitas pessoas já destacaram que eu tenho um grande conhecimento, e eu escrevo para tentar produzir algum material que seja útil para alguém, assim como outras pessoas fizeram materiais gratuitos que possibilitaram eu ter o conhecimento que tenho hoje. Também tento destacar pontos que eu acho importante, e que as vezes não é dado a devida importância em outros materiais (e quem sabe ver isso futuramente em materiais de outras pessoas). Entre as opções de formato, textos são mais simples de produzir do que um vídeo editado, e são mais rápidos de se consumir do que uma live com horas de duração, além de servir como material de consulta, facilitando a pesquisa, ou mesmo a navegação direta ao assunto quando bem estruturado.

(Se a resposta fosse mais simples, eu poderia pensar em escrevê-la em inglês, mas essa ou era em português, ou google translate)

My main issue is just time, haha! Too much stuff going on and it's hard to block out the time for it. 😅 I know that's an excuse though.

For you it is a very realistic excuse though haha

You can do it in small pieces :)
