In ten years, how will writing change? I imagine, firstly, we’ll be able to write more efficiently. I wrote this thought on my smartphone while waiting for an oil change, this before entering thrift store, this after not finding anything, and returned to my computer for this final draft. That flexibility in 2008 would have been great! How might that look in 2028? Let’s ask ourselves, via this open letter, how we can build better writing tools!
Ten years ago…?
As much as I’d like to tell you that your life will be great, it’s only moderately so. You’ve lived a rough life. At least you’re free now, like you wanted, but you’re also chained to that which you feared: your addictive personality nearly consumed you. Now it’s a daily struggle to live life honestly. You do well enough now, and have some allies in your fight, so it’s alright.
