My Experiment in Blogging, First Results   2 comments

I thought that since I’ve been blogging for a couple of months now, and I am halfway through NaPoWriMo, I thought I’d write about how the experience has effected me.

On writing:
– I’m glad I have finally gotten into the swing of things when it comes to meeting my weekly goal. I definitely struggled with it when I first started.

– I find I write best when I’m not trying to write about something too specific. When I try and write on a subject like psychology or personality, I can’t seem to focus my thoughts and get it started. So, at least for the forseeable future, I’ll keep up my posting habit of daily prompts, weekly challenges, and random thoughts.

– Writing this blog has actually kept me going. I haven’t had the best time in my life right now, and even though I am not writing about that regularly, just the act of writing helps me channel all that negativity into something positive.

On NaPoWriMo:
– I’ve found writing poems to be a very cathartic experience. Although most of the time my poetry comes out completely angst-y, it helps keep those feelings from creeping into other facets of my life and causing havoc. Plus, it keeps be using my creativity.

– I’ve also found writing a poem a day is really hard work. I feel like I’m scrapping the bottom of my creative… thing you scrape the bottom of. I’m still going to finish of the challenge because I find it fun, but don’t be surprised if my last few poems are dirty limericks and haikus about writer’s block.

– This has renewed my love of poetry and I’ve decided that, in addition to my 2 posts a week I am currently doing, I will also be posting at least 1 poem a week. I will also go back through all the poems I wrote for this challenge and give them the revisions that they deserve.

Finally, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who follows me, who likes my posts, and who view my blog. I know it seems like a small thing to do. But that half a second you took to click a button on your screen gave me the motivation I needed to keep writing. Just knowing that someone out there enjoyed my writing for even a second, makes it all worth it. I hope you all continue to read my blog; I’ll try to keep it entertaining.
