"Y" hello (groan), almost at the end of my A-Z series "26 Things that Made Me a Writer".
This one relates a bit more to what makes me a blogger, I think. I try to keep the yakking in my writing to a minimum!
I can be pretty quiet a lot of the time, but when it comes to a subject I love and feel passionate about, I go nineteen to the dozen. And unsurprisingly my favourite subject is writing. That's why it's so great for me and others of my ilk to have an outlet like this.
Before, I would have internal conversations about how to go about things in my writing that seemed to go round and round interminably. Now, that still goes on, but interspersed with my own thoughts are those of my fellow bloggers, which may have originated in a post, comment or email. Those little snippets are often hugely insightful and inspiring.
I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to air what's on my mind and read all the thoughts of my friends out there. It makes writing so much more exciting and motivates me no end. I covered this a bit in my "C" post, but I can't sing the praises of the blogosphere enough! So, a big thanks to all of you for being here - you brighten up my day, and I'm overwhelmed that some of you have returned day after day during the Challenge! :o)
So, here's to yakking about writing and whatever else - let's all continue to learn from each other!
Do you enjoy yakking on here?
NB: I am away as from today until May 13th. I will do my best to respond to comments during my trip, but if not, rest assured I will get back to you upon my return!
