What Am I Doing?

I don't spent a lot of time talking about my writing. I don't even write a lot about my writing. There's a simple reason for that. I have no idea what I'm doing.

There are so many writing blogs out there with great advice, interesting tidbits, and good information. I don't have that. So, I write about what I know, and I read about what I don't know.

But it's summer. The sub jobs kind of dry up when school is not in session.

I've decided that it's about time I write something about writing. But since I don't know anything useful about writing, I can only write about how I write. Hey, it's a great way to fill up my Thursdays.

Before I got the courage to sit down and attempt to write something, I read a lot about how writers write. Some of the information was useless, but some of what I read helped me figure out what kind of writer I am. I guess that's what we're all doing here--figuring out what we're doing by using the example of others.

Yeah, it's much simpler when I have crazy sub days to write about.

  1. Despite the fact that I have a writing blog, I still feel uncomfortable writing about writing. Maybe if I were a bestselling author I'd feel like more of an expert. It's a really intense craft and always something more to learn.

  2. I never give advice on writing because nothing I have to say would ever add a drop to the information that is out there on google. I find it more useful to poke fun at writing or to rip apart someone else's writing to find out what they are doing right or wrong.

  3. I'm like you, I read and learn a lot from books and blogs. Then I take the info and make my own way.
