Bloganuary the Eighth

Welcome back to Bloganuary, the daily encouragement from WordPress for bloggers to post something each day. If you want to participate in Bloganuary, just click here! Today’s prompt asks the question: What do you like most about your writing?

This might be a difficult question for me to answer. When it comes to my own writing, I am often my own worst critic. At the same time, I love going back and rereading old blog posts from years ago because I make myself laugh. Is that because what I’ve written is genuinely funny or am I just being reminded of what I was going through at the time the original post was written?

I love to write, whether it’s taking time to write something fictional or posting a review of something I’ve seen or read or just telling an anecdote about something I’ve observed in the real world. I guess if I like anything in particular about my writing it’s that I write things that I would want to read. If I’m writing a short story, it’s because it’s the kind of story I would want to read. If I’m sharing my thoughts on the latest Marvel movie, it’s because I’m interested in finding out what other theories might be out there.

If only I could figure out a way to make a living out of writing.

  1. I have often thought of the idea that everyone has one great novel inside of them. That make me think – who is eating books, and do different books taste of different things?!

    In all seriousness, look at it this way. If *I* can find a publisher, *you* can find a publisher. Maybe put together an anthology of your short stories? You can definitely do it!
