Take Away #1 – A Form of Exercise
For me writing is exercise for my mind, my heart and my spirit! I enjoy writing from an active stand point instead of a passive one. It gives a story power, energy and life!
Take Away #2 – Creating A Story
What Is The Story To Be About?
I love when the story starts to unfold! I start to know what the story is about and what direction to take it in. I enjoy when a story not only tells, but shows with imagery and illustration. I love when I can get wrapped up in and feel like I am part of the story!
Take Away #3 – Write From Your Heart
I love to write in my own words from my own experiences! I write from my heart, my feelings and my thoughts. I write from my dreams, passions and desires. I write from who I am and the way I live my life!
Take Away #4 – Learning How Much of
Yourself to Put Out There
I am learning how much of myself I want to put out there in my writing! I am finding the balance that works best for me. There needs to be just the right amount of humanness and the personal without going TMI. I am discovering what experiences I want to share with others!
Take Away #5 – Practice, Practice and Practice Some More
Practicing writing is such a teachable moment for me when it comes to developing, learning and growing in my writing! The number one lesson I have learned is that writing teaches me humility. Another lesson I have learned is that my writing is ever changing as I practice, grow and age. I write from who I am right now and with what I am experiencing today!
Take Away #6 – Edit = Rework and Rewrite
I will write the first draft and then edit it by reworking and rewriting it over and over again! It is about practice and improvement. It is about knowing where the trash can is when a piece is no longer coming together and just starting over. It is about learning, growing and experiencing each and every day and never giving up!
