I made terrible grades in school. English class was not my favorite. I hated learning the writing process. I made C’s, all the way up through college sophomore English. It was miserable.
Even so. I still had thoughts about being an author or writer…and then, quickly pushing that thought aside…and replacing that thought with…I’m not good enough to be a writer.
Because, here I am.
My process, and my writing probably don’t look as it should.
And, I don’t really care.
I just enjoy getting my thoughts out on paper, and sharing it with others…with the hope being that at least one person will benefit!
So, what has my process been?
*Write down or type up my ideas- I started with just writing a couple of thoughts on a new page
*Set up folders in Pages to organize different posts I’m working on- I started having so many, that I finally needed to set up folders to keep it organized and have a place where I knew I could find what I was looking for.
*Add individual, new pages to established folders- as I have thoughts or ideas, I add those into their respective folders. Sometimes they just sit there, until the words start flowing.
*Title/give a topic- it usually just comes to me. I go with it
*Wait until I feel led to write on that project- again, I just wait for the words to flow.
*write in that page for that project
*edit until it flows how I like it
* set post settings.
Now, this is one of my areas I’m stretching and growing. It’s not much like what I learned in school, but it works for me.
I’ve got this general process down to create a habit…it’s not daily, quite yet.
It’s also not refined, quite how I want it….but I’m doing it….One post at a time.
