The Write Way–(because there is no “right” way)…..

I was asked to write a monthly blog on Craft for OCC. Very nice to be asked, by the way. But the problem came when I actually started thinking about what to say!

Craft is just so subjective. Are there rules to writing? Absolutely. Should you try to bend them, break them and or spindle and mutilate? Why not? And who am I to tell you not to do it?

So what I’m going to do is, talk about how I write. That’s not necessarily the way you’ll write. Or the way you should write. But it’s what I know. And, I’d love it if you had questions. Or suggestions on what you might like to read about.

On my first blog though, I’m just going to say that to be a writer, you MUST write. Every day. Even it’s only for a few minutes a day. We’ve all got busy lives. Husbands, kids, parents, jobs…and all of it combines to make writing time hard to come by.

But you’re worth the effort. Carve out a little bit of time all for yourself. Early in the morning, late at night. On your lunch hour. Make the writing as important as everything else in your world. Connect with your own imagination. Let the words flow even if they don’t seem to make sense at first glance. You can fix anything. But first you have to write it.

So let’s hear the questions and suggestions. I KNOW you’ve all got opinions!
