I started this blog page with the idea of having to write every week and the blog page was a great place to put these pieces- poetry or any other type of writing.
It gives me a deadline to work towards; every week I need to have something ready to post.
I love writing, and I’m always, well, often, scribbling things down. Even in the middle of the night, the words won’t rest, I have to sit up, put the light on and write; they demand it!
These fill my journal or are collecting in a pile on my writing desk- like the foot high pile that I can see to the left of me now, my aim is to clean them up, edit them and type them up for the blog page.
But I haven’t even touched this pile yet; new ‘stuff’ keeps coming through.
Since starting the blog page, the more I write, the more I write.
These new pieces sometimes make it to the blog page or something else seems more relevant as I sit to type that weeks post.
These are some of the ideas you can use to create a post-(some I’ve even managed to use myself and publish on this blog page!!)
-a poem I’ve been working on for a while, or which has ‘appeared’; as words sometimes can, just appear, even at the last minute
-something that ‘occurs’ to me during daily life- when a few things ‘happen’ and they seem to have a common ‘theme’. I like writing about these, as a way of understanding them.
-it can be a short story with some kind of twist or just with a voice which came through very strongly- ‘Ian’s Story’ was like that; it was his voice in my head and came out of the pen onto paper. I published it here pretty much unchanged.
-writing ideas or prompts
-other web links which have inspired me and hope they may inspire you too!
Did you start a blog? Why did you start a blog? What kind of things do you write about? I’d love to hear about it!
Thanks for reading- don’t forget to ‘follow’ if you haven’t already!
