zig has put forth a challenge - don't take sides; trade sides. Try and be somebody you're not. Try and put on someone else's shoes.
The challenge has been posted in the form of an exercise, over at Caferati, and I'm copy-pasting the rough guidelines.
Pick any topic on which you have very strong views.
Write about it.
The idea is to write postively about something you'd normally write negatively about.
To stretch your imagination to encompass a world view that you despise, ridicule or just don't believe in.
No restictions on genre or style.
You can write it on the exercise thread, or on your own space, or as a comment on the Caferati blog.
Actually, Caferati promotion apart, just do the exercise - write it in your private diary if you please, and don't show it anybody, if you can't. But attempt it.
It should be interesting, at the very least.
