A Writer’s Write

A MUST read all the way to the end!

Idea after idea after idea! I’m sure there is always something to talk, or in our world, write about. Which leads me to this question. Is there such a thing as writing about writing? This, perhaps, can stem from those who help other bloggers (writers) formulate their ideas and make a clear message for our audience. Yet, in this very moment I’m feeling as though writing is becoming about writing.

Lately, I’ve had to experience some crucial rude awakenings and, admit, frustration’s peace appears allusive. First question: how can frustration be peaceful? Second, how can it be allusive? Great questions by the way (lol). The second question actually explains the first. The suggestion (or allusion) being made is that my rude awakenings have brought troubling truths that I can’t avoid. I’ve tried to, but circumstances won’t let me. So, frustration has a peace because of settling on what needs to be done. Still unclear? I love it. Well, writing about writing! My mind is clouded with complexities of trees, fans, clothes, lions and rain, and I’ve set to write a blog about writing. But you’ve gotta keep reading ….

A Sharpener SHARPENS

It’s rather nerve wrecking for me to write. I find joy and displeasure most times. The preceding paragraph is purposely written (somewhat) in a mass of confusion though my mind is clear enough to jot these few lines. The complexity of a tree or fan, clothes, lions or even rain is that neither coincide with each other. There in lies the clarity! I KNEW they didn’t! Why “three paragraphs” later? Because sometimes the point …. no, isn’t that why we write in the first place? We have something we want to convey to our audience (the ideas). This place is a place to spread our wings and fly effortlessly within, what we firmly believe, to be our pilot. We are driven to blog; for most everyday. A tendency to share what we have on a page because that “ability” drives us no matter what to complete the task even if we’re talking about cell phone towers and a cup-0-noodles in the same story.

You’re My JUST ONE!

I’m still wondering if I have one reader. I think I do. Oh, and by the way, I’ve thanked you before and thanking you again millions of times over! Oh yes! I wrote about that JUST ONE! That’s all it really takes. Sure, I, like anyone else, would love to touch the world, but if my audience is JUST ONE — Thank you in abundance! You are more important to me than I could ever explain to you! What appears to be beginning’s rhetoric is the idea to a mind that becomes scattered yet reaches a direction along the way. It’s, likely, feasible to wait until an idea is “clear” but I want to show how you can still press through an overcrowded mind and flow! And thus you get … A Writer’s Write!

IQ … Should We Believe?

Nerve Wrecking?

Have you ever wondered what your IQ was? Have you ever taken a test to see what number you were and once you found out had some type of reaction to it? Did you agree or disagree? Why or why not? It’s amazing to go from preschool to 12th grade (possibly college if you were encouraged to do so) and still doubt where you fit in the world. Doubt. A very strong word to use. We doubt a lot of things but unwilling to admit we do.

Who wants to be told you’re dumb or imbecilic to figure out the basics? I know for sure I don’t. There is a misconception that writers are smart. I don’t think so. We face those grammar errors constantly. It’s like the screaming run-on sentence waits for a comma, semicolon and/or period. Creativity doesn’t make us smart. It makes us creative. I know, but there has to be some type of intellect to come up with these ideas to expound upon. And that thought would be correct, but what if a person’s desire to write doesn’t match the IQ of a writer? Meaning, he or she desires to write, have topics on top of topics and cannot formulate one sentence? It’s obvious that honing any craft takes practice as well as desire.

I wrote a blog that spoke about my comprehension. I suuuuucked (lol). I don’t have a problem admitting I had a struggle. Still do. It’s my truth, and I work on it all the time. Writing came as a result (well, blogging I should say) of trying to write poetry; though, I don’t like calling it poetry. Poetry makes my writing seem limited. That’s no put down to those who write poetry. It’s a beautiful talent. It’s warm and inviting. It takes a great amount of skill to be able to rhyme. That is given much due respect within itself! For me, I write in verse. In my book “A Mirror’s Reflection: Beyond the Veil” I wrote in verse. My readers told me they didn’t know they were going to read this type of writing but I pointed out it’s not really poetry. The book is about being a mirror that reflects. I reflect “Jealousy” so I wrote about it, but I also reflect “About Time” which talks about a man’s view of classless women.

Speaks 4 Itself

Do I believe what I’ve learned about my IQ? Yes and no. I rated highly intelligent but didn’t do any further research to know what I’m intelligent in. Truthfully, it isn’t that important to me. I know people who place much on these studies. They live by it. Perhaps, knowing yourself is taking a good hard look in the mirror (of your mind) and allowing the truth to make you free!

Bloggers Purpose or Purpose: Blogging?

Confusion’s Apparel

Here ye! Here ye! Writing is now in session. The “honorable” writer presides! LOL! That’s funny right there. What does the title mean: “Bloggers Purpose” or “Purpose: Blogging?” The “Bloggers Purpose” stems from a blogger’s basic agenda. He or she will write about an idea creatively painting an intriguing picture that readers can’t wait to read the story of interest. The reader is then enlightened and/or entertained causing him or her to beg for more! And then there is the “Purpose: Blogging.” This is a person trying to figure out if they should write at all.

I don’t know if that appeared clear, especially since I’m writing about it, but I have had this plaguing question since a child of what is my purpose. I have various things that I sort of can do. I’m not even sure if there is such a thing as mastering an ability but have tried to become good at some of those abilities — putting practice in one area more than another. So, why am I still lost or, at least, continually feel this way? I had a conversation with my Dad this morning while at the gym about this and he told me that a person is not their purpose, however, I told him that a person’s purpose gives them a sense of identity. Who am I type thing. Like, I get that I am a child of God. A daughter, sister, friend, etc., yet why am I here? I told him that since childhood I’ve pondered this life I have. Again, why am I here?

Speaks for itself

Here I am — writing! Am I fairly good at it? I don’t know. I’ve written some things and have received some positive views. I have also received great needful critiques, but … how come they’re still not enough? I love to help people. No! I have to do my usual. I truly LOVE helping people and want, if I can, for my writing (amongst other things) to be an encouragement, enlightenment, aid, teacher, etc. Hmmm, maybe that’s it …

It’s NEVER Too Late 2 Figure Out

A “Bloggers Purpose” AND “Purpose: Blogging” — to utilize writing as a way to creatively motivate, etc., and KATHERINE … “It is something you do as a means to fulfill your desire …. helping others!”

What is your take on purpose overall?
