For the last couple of weeks, I've been doing some writing in Japanese, which may not be a difficult task for those people who are required to do some formal and descriptive writings on business or in education, but it totally made me reluctant to write in English. I'm not versatile enough that I can think both in English and Japanese interchangeably according to topics. I thought it'd be easier to write in my notebook, but that's not particularly fun... I'm keep writing the same thing repeatedly. I'd need to do something other than free writing. That is what I'm pondering these days. What if I pick phrases and sentences I was fascinated with during reading a book and write them down in a notebook. It'd be much practical and effective to stock more expressions I can use in my writing from the books whose usage of language or messages I appreciate.
