Today’s prompt from the WEGO 30 days/30 posts challenge is Writing with Style. What’s your writing style? Do words just flow from your mind to your fingertips? Do you like handwriting first? Do you plan your posts? Title first or last? Where do you write best?
What is my writing style? Hmmm…not such an easy question. I’d like to say that the words just flow from my mind to my fingertips effortlessly but, although this happens sometimes, it is not usually the case. I actually wrote that sentence 4 times before getting it right. I’d say writing is challenging at times but I love doing it and I love putting in the effort to make my posts as good as possible.
I sometimes plan my posts and I sometimes just write whatever is on my mind on that given day. I would love to be more of a planner in the blog department but I am sad to say I am a bit disorganized in the blog department so I just go with the flow and write my pets day by day. I do have a notebook for my blog that I fully intend to use whenever I find the time to organize it properly. I find the best ideas actually come while I am running, too bad I couldn’t record my thoughts while running because by the time I get home they are usually just a jumbled mess and I lucky to remember exactly what the idea was in the first place.
I find putting titles on my posts can sometimes be more challenging than the post itself. Titles are so important because they are the first thing readers see and it could determine whether or not they are going to actually read your post or skip it so I generally try to make them creative and enticing. I usually title my posts first but almost always end up changing the title before I publish because I end up thinking up a better title while I am actually writing the post. Titles are so important because they are the first thing readers see and it could determine whether or not they are going to actually read your post or skip it.
My favorite place to write at this moment is in my sunroom at 5 am before anyone else in the house wakes up. My sunroom is peaceful and inspiring especially first thing in the morning!!! If I could write anywhere it would be in a beautiful cabin on a lake somewhere, unfortunately that type of space is not available to me at this time.
What is your writing style??
