Despite the sometimes arduous process of creating a blog post, I adore writing. Truth be told, I aspire to write a book someday. About what? I played with the idea of penning an expository text about dealing with men and their douchebaggery mannerisms.
On occasion, I receive comments complimenting my writing style. But what exactly is my style? I consider myself a "Storyteller." I design my writing to captivate and entertain an audience. I aim to share my experience complete with descriptions to excite the senses.
With my writing I intend to tell a story with my words and transport the reader to that particular point in time. An extra added bonus to my style, my posts tend to take a comedic turn from time to time. I never force the funny, it just flows.
In my opinion, the following posts highlight my "storyteller" style (Click the links to read the posts):When I create, I consider myself an artist. I use words to paint a picture. Words. Words. Words. I regard myself somewhat as a novice wordsmith. I prefer to use $5 words (expressive or creative words) rather than mundane, ordinary ones. Case in point, in the previous sentence I employed the word mundane rather than boring.
As a teacher, I encourage my students to utilize $5 words and to retire blah, dreary words to the word cemetery.
So to answer the question, do the words just flow from my mind to my fingertips...yes and no. When my blogging mojo arrives on the scene, my words resemble that of a current surging through a light bulb.
However, I periodically experience writer's block. And when blocks occur I stop blogging until the blockage recedes. In the past I apologized for my many writer's block blog hiatuses. Now...no apologies. Rather than force a post, I made the desicion to blog when I AM damn ready...THIS IS MY BLOG!
Next question, do you like handwriting first? It depends on my mood or the topic at hand. Oftentimes I brainstorm a post or jot down ideas. If a notion strikes while driving, I record the thoughts with my phone.
Now, to acknowledge the remaining three question. Yes and no, to the query of do I plan posts. I typically write about current events in my life. Every now and then, a "hot button" topic that chaps my hide comes to the forefront of various media outlets and in turn, I write an emotional response, as in the case of the post...I'm about to piss some people off.
