I was tagged by Alaska Renee, who just recently underwent some blog changes! She has a lovely blog and is part of the Summer Blogger Challenge that I’m a part of! This was a writing process tag prompt, so I’m going to talk about my writing process! (Sorry it took so long to post mine! Oops!)
What are you working on?
I used to write ALL THE TIME! Especially in college. I had about five stories I was writing at the same time, but I haven’t been working on anything recently. Now I just write my blog, but I’d like to fall back into writing. I loved writing, almost as much as I love reading. It provides a wonderful and creative escape.
How does your work differ from others of its genre?
I tend to write in a way train-of-thought sort of way. I write what I’m thinking with a lack of filters (which is how I end up putting things in parenthesis like this here little thought!) And I end up with some run-on sentences sometimes as well! (And a lot of ‘!’ at the end of everything) I started writing book reviews and have really branched out from there.
Why do you write what you do?
I write about what I like, what I’ve seen, and I try to put myself into my writing style. I’m a little shy if you talk to me in person, but I’ve always been able to convey my feelings through the written word. I’ve always liked to talk to people about stuff that I like but I end up stumbling over my words, which is why I’ve played around with starting a blog for such a long time. I thought it would be the easiest way for me to make friends and talk about what I like without stumbling and bumbling all over the place.
How does your writing process work?
When I’m writing a story I normally type up a rough out line in a word document that I refer to. I’m always making changes though, and editing. I edit ALL THE TIME when I write a story. I also never let anyone read anything, I get so embarrassed!!
When I write NANOWRIMO in November, I do a rough outline and break up my story into 3 parts so I can gage how fast/slow I’m working. I’ve only finished the challenge once, which is a little embarrassing!
For blog posts, I normally keep a little notebook on me to write down post ideas, which I then turn into draft posts and schedule into the future. I like to stay ahead of the game. I try to think my book reviews through the most out of all my posts, they tend to have the most writing in them compared to everything else.
