Hi Alexey

I have just recently started thinking about writing and joined twitter and DEV. It was probably one of the best decisions I've ever made. Although my story is different than yours, they do overlap in some areas like for example the startup debacle.

I started programming 20 years ago when I was 16 and have always been reading technical articles and API documentation. I only regret for not leaving more time for classic literature unrelated to software development.

It's crucial for a software developer to be able to write coherent emails or documentation; most of them are introverts with poor social skills with keyboard being their only communication tool.

I am also one of those introvert, however my severity levels are on the low side. All that has got me thinking and have recently decided to start writing.

Now comes the plot twist. I said to myself, or promised if you will, that I will write anything but technical articles and devote my free time to poetry and prose. This might come as a shocker, but the desired effect of becoming more eloquent is the same.

I'm not saying that I'll never write anything technical ever again but will at least refrain from doing so for some time. Anyway, I loved your article and will surely read the others as they come.

If you have the time, check out my non technical ramblings. 😁
