Heather recently tagged me on a one question meme. Should be easy right?
“What’s your Favorite Type of Writing? And, I should mention, your favorite type of writing to do as opposed to your favorite type of writing to read.”
My love affair with writing started when I was in fourth grade and I decided I wanted to be a writer. I wrote a story about two girls and a treasure hunt. I drew the picures and even bound my little book using yarn as ties, and I gave it to one of my teachers. I know she still has this. Oh man, can I get it back? ha.
In college I graduated with a Journalism degree although I had no plans on becoming a reporter. My concentration was in public relations so I spent some time working for PR firms and also working in marketing. I got to do a lot of writing but it was all about how wonderful our clients were. So to fill my need for creative writing I signed up for creative writing classes and workshops any time I could.
Over the years I’ve dabbled in short stories and poetry. I actually have had several poems published in small journals so that is something I’m quite proud of, and at one point I thought I’d write a novel. I think almost every reader has had this idea right? But for now, I’m quite happy being a reader. Who knows, maybe one day that yearning will come back and maybe not. I still enjoy writing poetry and I have scribbles written everywhere but the one writing that’s always been a constant for me has been my journaling.
Here is proof that I like to journal. These are only a few of the journals I have filled over the past couple of years.
I won’t tag anyone else because it’s Sunday and I’m being lazy but if you want to borrow this please go ahead. I would love to hear some of your thoughts on the type of writing you like to do.
