Writing 101- I write because …

I write because

I want to hear what I’ve got to say.

Whenever I sit down to write I never know what is going to end up on the paper. I surprise myself everyday, when I look back at the page and I say ‘Oh, so that’s what I wanted to say today.’ How interesting!

Inside my head the words are running around bumping into one another, filling my mind and making no sense. Until I write.

Sometimes I can hardly believe the words that come onto the page are mine. Surely someone else wrote them? But no, they’re mine. My words. My thoughts. My opinions.

I write because I am interested to know what I think.

That’s all.books, angels and the amex 003

    I’m interested to know what you think too Jackie. Looking forward hearing more during the course. (I now have you in my reader, which I didn’t for Blogging 101.)

    • Thank you Maddy, I love your blog and am following you of course. The way you write is so friendly and approachable, and makes me feel as if you are my friend! Did you still want me to write a guest blog about hats? All the very best to you xx

        Thank you so much I hope I am your friend! Absolutely I still want you to be my guest poster Jackie. I hope to have one each week but I might have to start next week lol. I thought you would be too busy doing the writing course. Any time you want to send me something please email it to me at m.butcher@iinet.net.au and I will write an introduction and a thank you. If you can add a picture of yourself I will put you in my “hall of fame”. Thanks for your feedback. My followers have doubled today now that I am using my maddy1953 wordpress.com site.

      • Hi Maddy, so good to hear you doubled your followers! You work so hard on your blog, you deserve to be followed 🙂 Looking at your list of subjects to write about each day of the week – I wish you luck! Every time I try to do this I fail miserably and have decided to just be spontaneous … apart from Funny Photo Friday of course. I will send my guest post when I have written it, I love the prompts you gave on your blog.

      • Maddy1953 says:

        I have compiled that list so that I only really have one that involves much writing. Not sure I am going to make my Friday futures deadline tomorrow though. I might have to make it a short one!

      • Don’t stress yourself out – enjoy it 🙂 I never know where the time goes, when you plan a week’s activities you think there is so much time – and then it’s all gone!

  2. A lovely, sincere and interesting post Jackie!
