Read → Think → Write.

Reading leads me to thinking. Thinking leads me to writing. Writing creates something that can be read. Repeat.

Writing publicly scared me at first. I feared not producing something original or valuable.

Read → Think → Write is how most creative written work comes together. Most ideas aren’t developed from one’s own intuition but from reflecting and constructing upon the ideas of others.

I overcame my fear when I realized this. Everybody has ideas worth sharing.
