In my spare time, I went to this thing. It was a writing class. At a library. It focused specifically on memoir writing. (Honestly, I have no interest of writing a memoir or any other type of book; not on my personal life list.) but I have been writing on this blog for, oh, you know, SEVEN years so I wanted to check it out. (Because I don't intend to stop writing but I have NOT been feeling it lately!)
So, here are the two big things I took away:
1. Write. (Yep.)
The woman who led the class, Paula Morell, is a creative writing teacher and founder of Tales from the South - which is an amazing live radio show that is now broadcast on the NPR.... writers reading their own stories. She suggested finding your most creative time (of the day) to write and shared with us that her time is b/w midnight and four in the morning. Unfortunately, I think that's my time too. Not a conducive schedule for me with young babies but, you know, maybe once a week!?
2. Write the moments. (And your perception of them.)
I think I'm getting better about this.
When do you blog (or create) best?
