A-Scribe to Describe (Ascribe to Describe)

Ascribe to Describe. What is that about you ask. I will attempt to, in this first post, explain the concept behind Ascribe to Describe. Although, if you know the definitions of those words, you will understand the concept behind the Blog.

It did not take long to come up with this name which, if you notice, uses two verbs, both of which contain the word Scribe. A Scribe is:

  • 1 A person who copies out documents, especially one employed to do this before printing was invented.
  • 2 A writer, especially a journalist.
  • 3 A Jewish record-keeper or, later, a professional theologian and jurist

That second point is really the one I would like to focus on. It says “A writer, especially a journalist” which is where my focus lies and where the heart of this Blog is. Journalism is not something I am keen on doing which leaves the Writer as the last option (of course hehe).

To be a writer

A daunting task indeed. What can one write about that hasn’t been written yet. Moreover, what can one write that hasn’t been written yet while working out a decent story, captivating character development, and a unique writing style. I cannot say that what I write will have all these qualities, but I would like to at least attempt this daunting task. I do not think the writing itself is daunting, but the conceptualizing of ideas, the dreaded opening sentence, and the formation of a compelling story that will either grab the reader or put them off for life. That is daunting.

Now the name of the blog Ascribe To Describe is, I think, a great way to say what I will be attempting to do here. First, the definitions of the words in the title suggest I ascribe my ideas and thoughts, to the ability to describe (to write). Second, the play on words here sets me as  a scribe to describe – a writer giving a detailed account.

Well that I hope explains to you the name of the blog and what you would expect to find within it. I am curious as to where all this will lead and I can make all the plans under the sun and make decisions surrounding my plans but Proverbs 16:9 says “The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps.”

Hope you do visit often 🙂
