I have been a writer since I was a child. I would take my looseleaf lined paper and a pencil, sit on the family room couch and write short stories about animals, their homes, their adventures. One of my first characters was “Ronny Raccoon”. I still have that story and all my other writings, papers, books in a storage box in my closet! I also would take a tape recorder and set up my stuffed animals to record audio stories. The creative life is something I have embraced since I was very young. And perhaps that’s why, now in the digital age, I have already tried out several blogs, taken breaks, and then always started up something new… why? Because I can’t NOT write. Words, ideas, expression have all taken form in my journals, short stories, poems, songwriting, and blogging. I must write, which is one of the reasons I started up this most recent blog.
I still have much to learn in the area of creative writing. Here is a list of a few articles that are good little tips and reminders to aid in the pursuit of better writing.
Read books, read articles, read blogs, and read blogs on a variety of topics like travel, food, parenting, decorating, music, history! Expand your knowledge base, educate your mind, enrich your life! WRITE!
