So, I want to thank my friend Kim for inviting me to be a part of this “Tour Through Blogland”. If this is your first time joining me I hope that something that is said here will inspire, encourage or help you in some way. I will try not to take up too much of your time so let’s dive right in to the questions that have been asked of me.
What are you working on?
Currently, I am working on my first book. It is going to be an autobiography of sorts but with a twist. I will let you all figure out the twist when you buy and read the book. 🙂 I am also learning the tools that I need to take this blog to a whole new level. I envision it becoming so much more than just another blog and I am currently learning what I need to do in order to get this to where I want it to be.
How does your work differ from others in its genre?
I believe that my work differs from others in this genre because each of my experiences are unique and my reactions and views of those experiences are also unique. I don’t believe any blogger is ever truly able to be the same as another one, even if their genre is the same, simply because, as people, we are all unique. This proves even more true when it comes to our writing and other creative work that we each may do.
Why do you write/create what you do?
I write what I do because I love being able to let people into my life. I really am an open book, that is just who I am and who I want to be. My hope, for anything that I write, is always that it will help someone else in some way, no matter how big or small.
How does your writing/creative process work?
Honestly, I work better under pressure so my writing process (or lack thereof) kind of shows that. I brainstorm from time to time but writing is not that “hard” for me. Many times an idea will just pop in my head or I will read/hear something and I will automatically know that I want/have to write about it. So, unfortunately, if you were looking for more of a “how-to”, you may not be able to get that from me since there is no real formality to my writing/creative process. That is also true for when I write poetry or music. I like to look at this as the proof that I am doing what I am supposed to be doing because I don’t really have to “work” at it but I guess we can all look at that in many different ways.
I’ve enjoyed being your guest on this tour today and letting you peak into my writing/creative/thought process a bit but now I must sign off. I hope to see you all around again soon and would love to have you all continue to join me on my blog journey. Hey, what’s one more blog, right?!? 🙂 Be sure to check out my friend and a phenomenal blogger/writer, in her own rite, Jessica E, as she continues our “Tour Through Blogland” next Monday, December 1st.
