Day Fifteen – Writing with Style

hawmc2013Writing with Style. What is your writing style? Do words just flow from your mind to your fingertips? Do you like handwriting first? Do you plan your posts? Title first or last? Where do you write best?

9 times out of 10, the words come to me from just sitting here, at my desk on my laptop. More often of late, I’ve been sat on my bed, middle of the evening, writing about certain topics and subjects, sometimes with inspiration from my day or conversations. I have alot of drafts. Mostly titles. And photos. Some half finished posts; things I am biding my time to talk about, discuss.

Over half of the time, the title comes first. It is rare for me to write without a title. Finding a title after just some stream of consciousness is alot harder for me. I write as if I am talking. I ask questions, try to pose something for discussion. It works sometimes, other times it is just for me to explore. People who know me in real life, know that my writing speaks exactly as I do.

I never write out my posts beforehand. I keep a small note of interesting things on my Blackberry email to help me out when my brain is just not functioning like it should. I almost always write in my room. I always write at night. I always write with music on.
