Reflections

So I have had this blog for over three years now. I wrote my first blog on a whim and titled it “New to this”.  Here is the link to that first blog from 2015 https://brwnsknswty.wordpress.com/2015/02/19/new-to-this/

My decision to post that first post was to get over the jitters that came with posting something that anyone could read.  Now over three years later, I am more intentional about what I post. I don’t write simply based off emotions anymore and my posts are more thought out.  I can read back over my posts now and immediately know where I was in my life, and see how life affected my writing.  I am grateful for those posts, but I do want to write posts that are not just relatable for me, but also more relatable for you. The reader.

Through writing more of what speaks to me I have noticed how my writing style has changed over the years.  I have a new found love for fiction and my goal is to share more of my fictional writing on this blog.  After writing my first fiction post (check it out here https://brwnsknswty.wordpress.com/2017/12/31/aniyahs-drawing/) I realized how much fun allowing your imagination to take over while writing could be.  I have written other fiction writing since then and loved every word of it.  Check out this fiction post that I wrote recently.

I have found that my hands fly quicker over the keyboard when I am writing fiction, compared to when I am writing a non fictional piece. I also find that I am more pleased with my writing when I am writing fiction.  I will continue to try to incorporate a lesson into my fictional writing. I don’t feel as if anything is worth writing unless it is leaving the reader with something to think about. 

I am truly grateful for the individuals who encouraged me to start a blog.  Now I have all of my writing available for me to read back over and see how my writing is growing. 

I am looking forward to reading my future writings and hope you enjoy reading them as well.
