Scripturient Sirimiri. The second part of the title was fairly random. Scripturient is a now obsolete Latin adjective, meaning desiring to write. Sirimiri is a Spanish noun, describing a light rain that is not quite a shower, also known as a drizzle. But, they have alliteration. I like alliteration.
A blank slate can be incredibly daunting. The first step is hidden behind a flurry of thoughts, a tangled web of possibilities, and maybe a puddle or two of doubt. Learning a language is one thing, using it is the real fun, or in some instances, the real pain.
Sometimes, you just have to ignore all the what-ifs and begin. This is my goal here. Writing gives me the confidence to speak a language, because I begin to “write” in my mind, and having something to base my words from is essential for me. To ensure that I keep this focus in mind, this will be the first and last post in English on this blog.
