BLOG ON ARTICLES #1
The first part is my impression about each article.
what-is-a-personal-essay A FAVORITE
emoticon personal essay: looks like this would be a good test of our abilities by writing the different types of personal essays. I agree with Penny, I had no idea there were so many different types.
emoticon I think when and how you write depends on what one want to convey. This article talks about writing at times of day to relieve dreams or purging. More like journaling from my point of view. I am not sure one can make one self write every day but would be up to a challenge to try for a week then a month and see if I can streak it!
emoticon These points are interesting. Have never thought about building a book out of old writings but it might be an idea. I do agree writing can be a good memory aid and reading old journals or notes can be more enlightening the 2nd time around!
emoticon Well, I don't agree that drawing in itself is writing but could lead one to express thoughts required to begin writing. felt this was not interesting for me.
zenhabits.net/write-daily LOVE ZEN FOR ANYTHING!!
emoticon Very good advice here on why you should write every day and how to ensure you do. Some of them include starting a blog on line. Pretty sure I am not ready to release all my thoughts out into the world but like some ideas here.
I liked some of these articles better than others. Certainly some of this would be due to the writing styles of the authors. I did not read the background of each but would do so when reading more of their works.

MOTIVATION FOR SIGNING UP FOR WRITING CLASS blOG #2
I have written on and off since I was young and read more than I played outside. I have written journals of thoughts, short stories, poems and even started a book on line but only the first 3-4 chapters. I have even done what I believe is Ghost writing. [Ghost writing being unconscious writing of a deceased person/ghost's thoughts.] I have chattered out a couple poems in places here in Hogwarts as well because I have just been inspired again!
The book was about a group of friends I made in 1998 playing bingo in pogo. I actually found all my notes and chapters while cleaning this past weekend. The story is about a town called BINGO TOWN who is celebrating its 100 years of existence. There is a big celebration and the characters from my pogo bingo room are all the original founders of the town. There are 4 left and they sit on the stage talking about their memories while the mayor talks about other unimportant stuff. LOL
I have never had any real public feedback on my writing so looking forward to having some here.
OK, off to read some articles so I can complete the other two steps of class! OH THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME WRITE!
