Today is my 2nd Blogiversary.
I posted the following on Jan. 7th 2004
On Personal Writing
All quotes taken from Writer's Inc.
"There is one type of writing, however, that may have more to offer than most movies. It is called personal writing, or writing that comes from within, carried out because you have a personal need to explore or share your experiences."
"Once you get into personal writing, you'll soon realize your thoughts and experiences are no more than starting points. You'll begin to turn these initial ideas inside out and see them in new ways. This might sound like heady stuff, but it really isn't. Personal writing is simply an effective way to examine your world."
"Journal writing works best when it is done on a regular basis....The important point is to get into a writing routine."
"In the best of all worlds, journal writing will become a very important part of your life, right up there with good friends and good food. But we will settle for something far more practical and down to earth: That through journal writing you will begin to feel more comfortable with the physical act of writing and more confident in your ability to express yourself."
"Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it,...and, above all. accurately so they will be guided by its light."
One reason why I started to blog...and why I continue to blog....
Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
1 Thessalonian 5:11
I have received so much more than I have given!
Thank you all for dropping by, for leaving a note, for saying a prayer... and for the love.
Encourage one another,
