Blogging Insights – New Format # 15

Our quote this week is
I write a lot (you think??)…… which is why Hubby suggested I start a blog way back in 2013.
I enjoy the challenges that come into my reader, be they photo prompts, word prompts, or questions and answers. Some inspire me more than others so I don’t always participate, and sometimes what I start out with is not the end result.

Writing letters to my Mum was always of the day to day events since my previous letter, much like my ‘Today is……’ posts which still seem quite popular so I am sticking with them for now.
Other times, something on our walks or something someone has said will trigger a memory or thought process that I like to get down on paper. Some mornings I wake up with an idea for a story or post going through my head, but by the time I’ve got up and dressed, I’ve forgotten it. It’s the same with poetry, I get a really good line and then forget it.  I now keep a book and pencil in my bedside drawer just in case!

I can understand the quote in respect of writing, but what the trigger is to turning on that tap is different for everybody.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Well said Di. We are inspired by different things.

    Inspiration is out there but we have to pay attention or we miss it. I had a friend who kept a note pad with ideas on it. She kept saying that “one of these days” she was going to write a novel. As far as I know she’s never written even a short story! So making the time to write is just as important as the inspiration…

    Yes, I agree! I write a lot, but I do enjoy it very much!

  4. So true Di.
    Everyone has their own “faucet”.
