Microblog Monday - The 3 Reasons I Blog
I've started a couple of streaks - Microblog Monday and Wordless Wednesday. I am also doing a blogging challenge this month which is to post each day in the month of November. My own rules for this are that I am only posting on the weekdays.
Why do I do it? What are my goals?
1. Writing down my thoughts, feelings and observations is cathartic and perhaps there are readers out there who can relate to me.
2. I find the idea of being a writer fascinating and for sure have a romanticized view of what a writers life would be like. If you've ever seen the movie 'Love Actually' the character Jamie writes on an actual typewriter at his retreat on an idylic pond somewhere in England.
3. Finding my writing voice has been a goal of mine for quite a while and if I keep writing I am hoping that I find it. Is the great American novel inside of me? Would anyone read my memoir? Who knows but I am going to keep trying just in case.
Stay tuned for more from My Middleton Chronicles and if you have any advice, constructive criticism or an idea for the direction of my blog I'd love to hear about it.
Have a great Monday!
