Hi! Today’s prompt: What’s your writing style? Do words just flow from your mind to your fingertips? Do you like handwriting first? Do you plan your posts? Title first or last? Where do you write best?
First of all, I do not handwrite first, but I find it interesting that there are people who do that! I’d say my writing style is more research-based. Whether it be about food, exercise, a product review or a travel recap, my best posts (in my opinon) are those that I really gather information for and write in the spirit of sharing that information. There are times that I’m thinking about a post all day before I go home and write it, there are times that I take pictures while I’m cooking with the intent of writing a post, and there are times that I sit in front of my laptop searching for something to write about. I write about what I know and what I feel would benefit others to know.
Its definitely not my style to write in the stream of consciousness style, or an emotional post that reads like a jounal entry, and I admire bloggers who do write like that. Even if I were to write about a struggle, it would be more to share facts and advice about what I was going through. Having said that, I do go back and edit most of my posts while I’m writing them and even after I post them. I write 99.9% of them on my couch with my laptop in my lap, and usually with television on in the background… maybe if I turned off the TV or went in the office, I’d have an easier time writing, or even coming up with titles, as I sometimes have trouble with that, too!
Do you have a blog? What’s your writing style?
