In the old days, men need to slave out just to Earn. You work hard to get Pay at the End of the Day. Fast forward to 2010. People don’t make money working hard anymore. People get paid thinking hard, or I would say, think Art (istically). This is where writing comes in. But I’m going to be an Architect, not a journalist. Well, you can be both!
For many individuals who want to break into Architecture Writing, getting started is often the Hardest part. If you don’t enjoy writing for writing’s sake, this process can be very intimidating. So its better to know your reason why. If you are looking to get started, there are several things to consider.

There are certain universally accepted works of Architecture that had strong critics but stood the test of time and became the New Architecture. So stay open and keep reading. this is a time to Start learning. Nobody becomes perfect on first “try” .
