With me are two friends, and, as a joint effort, we aspire to write articles, essays, and reflections in regular cadence. We don’t just write to influence other people and “get our names out there,” but we write to improve ourselves and build our own skills. Having our writing published online compels us to write as if many read our work. The possibility of having even a single reader sparks that motivation to write well.
Changing others and having impact requires that we first change what exists in our own selves, as the poet Rumi once expressed:
Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi.
But We Must Admit…
…that we don’t mean to come off as totally-committed, official authors. In fact, we’d come closer to the definition of “hobbyist.” We like writing, and sometimes do try to write full-fledged, readable articles – but life’s complexities and priorities take no hesitation in obstructing one’s hobbies. We’re growing writers, and definitely aren’t professionals; and neither does Elaboraet take first-priority in our lives. For these reasons, we do not yet have an established publishing schedule, and you shouldn’t expect one very soon.
In the meantime, however, we expect to keep this as a little “portfolio,” if you will, of what we’ve decided to write in our free time.
Welcome to Elaboraet.
