One Word At A Time . . .
I LOVE writing, especially creative writing! I receive so much pleasure from authoring my blog, Craves Adventure. My blog gives me lots of practice in writing. Who knows all that writing may produce that book I dream about one day!
The two hardest and greatest aspects of writing are . . .
- It takes hard work to write, especially creatively.
- It takes courage to put myself out there as a writer.
The Writing Process
First and foremost identify what you are passionate about!
Adventuring – Hang On!
I am passionate about traveling, adventuring and exploring. I wanted to write about my travel experiences and share those experiences with other people.
- Publishing and/or Sharing
#1 – Prewriting
I have two favorite parts of the prewriting process. I find that inspiration that sparks my creativity and speaks to me on pretty much every level. I enjoy doing the research on a subject. Prewriting helps you identify the purpose, form and audience.
Then comes the brain dump. I dump the data and start the writing and creative process to formulate a post. I find this method most helpful in minimizing writer’s block. I find the creating part more free flowing.
#2 – Writing
The actual writing is where the organization of the post comes together. I also find my voice along with the fluency of the post.
#3 – Responding
I do a self review and evaluation of the post. I usually read through the post and then set it aside for a day or two before reading again.
#4 – Revising
Then I start the revising process of the post. I think I spend too much time in the revising process. I like to refine and reorganize the post multiple times. However, this gives the post clarification in that it reads well.
#5 – Editing
I am pretty good when it comes to the editing of post. This is when I pull the post together and add photos that help tell the story of the post.
#6 – Publishing/Sharing
I enjoy the sharing of my writing now. When I first started I struggled in putting myself out there, especially my true self. I like to take the time to create and develop my website as well as add in the social media aspects to share and reach a boarder audience of readers.
Thank You WordPress!
I love that I can schedule my posts. It really helps me in having a writing schedule to determine how many posts a week I want to publish and share.
