Why Short Thoughts?

In Self Improvement, Short Thoughts

I have gained a huge amount of enjoyment from writing these short thoughts. They are a form of instant gratification, but they also allow me to get the essence of an idea out there, and build up a library of topics that one day can be investigated further and then turned into in-depth essays, giving the subject a full exploration.

Some may argue that they are superficial, because what can one say of value in a couple of hundred words? Perhaps they are right, but I see them more as the first brush stroke on a new canvas.
