Day 15 of the Health Activist Writer’s Challenge and today I am posting about my writing style.
My approach to writing on my blog is as varied as my topics. This month I am following the prompts that we have been so graciously offered for the month. I have never blogged with this frequency, especially the past few years. Hopefully at the end of thirty days a new pattern of writing that will emerge.
Previously, some of my blog posts have been prompted by a journal entry or a quote that I have found meaningful. Sometimes the inspiration comes from a book I am reading or a conversation. Mostly I write about what is up with me.
My favorite time to write is in the early morning. I will often wake up with an idea about what to write. If I don’t take the time to write or at least capture the thought, the inspiration will vanish with the busyness of my day. I have also written in the evening.
My blog writing has become an extension of my personal journal and I copy each post to my MacJournal. Perhaps I will weave them into an e-book in the future. In the meantime, they are being stored there for safe keeping.
I compose my posts on the computer. It was a habit I learned when I was completing my on-line master’s degree. I love that I can write, re-write, and edit with a light touch of the keys. Clean copy is also so much easier to read and I can type faster than I write. Of course, there is always the issue of legible handwriting. Some days my hand tires quickly using pen and paper and my handwriting is barely legible.
Sometimes the title of my blog is all that I have been given… Other times I have to write before I title it since I am not entirely sure what I am writing about. … Often I am surprised by what I write. It is then that I am aware of the angels and guides that are always with me. In that, I have faith.
The more I write, the better I write and I look forward to discovering more about myself through writing. This has been a great prompt. Thank you.
