Writing with Style. 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?
My writing style has changed dramatically during the past two years. Although I still prefer a notebook and pen for creative writing, I do 90 percent of my writing at my computer. I like to have company while I’m writing, whether it’s our cat Lucky…
…or my husband John, who is often writing poetry at his computer across the living room. We have shared many hours working on our individual projects — in our own worlds, yet together. Sometimes John reads some of his poems as he works on them, and I have to put up the computer, take out my notebook and pen, and write a few verses of my own. When I get a little burned out writing and researching articles, I’m grateful to have this creative outlet. Definitely a good working environment at home!
When I need solitude, I take my computer to our apartment complex office, where I sit under the skylight, sip coffee and write like crazy. I reward myself with a chocolate chip cookie — something I learned from Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg!
