Know Yourself as a Writer

Know Yourself as a Writer

I have been writing all of my life.  My writing style has changed over the year.  When I was a child up until I was in my thirties, I wrote poetry and short stories.  I would say that short stories and poetry is a great place to start writing.  For the past ten years, I have been writing online.  I have been writing all types of articles.  One of the many things that I have learned over the years is that you need to know yourself as a writer.

What Do I Mean,  Know Yourself as a Writer

What do I mean when I say know yourself as a writer?  I mean know where your strengths and weakness are in writing.  I am not saying don't try different types of writing or different writing styles.  After all, by trying to write all different types of things is how you learn what you like and do not like.  You really get to know yourself as a writer the more you try writing different types of things.

Writing about things are you enjoy and are interested in is a great way to discover the joys of writing.  A couple of years ago, I started writing reviews.  I did research on how to write a good review.  After two years of writing reviews off and on, I can't say that I write great reviews.  I find that my reviews are more of product description rather than reviews.  But, I have gotten better at writing them.

I have learned over the years that my articles that do the best are the ones that I enjoyed writing.  People can feel the energy coming from your articles.  I am a dog lover and writing about pets does very well.  Other pet lovers enjoy reading about other pets.

I love to read.  I read a lot of nonfiction books.  I also enjoy doing research this has helped me a great deal with writing articles for other people.  I was a freelance writer for six years.  I enjoy every minute of it.  The market got over flooded.

Now, that I am thinking about writing books, knowing all of this about myself is very import.  While I have written a few fiction books.  They are scripts only and not published.  I realized that I need to learn more about writing dialogue before I do anything else with my fiction novels.

My love for reading nonfiction and doing research has given me the idea of writing a nonfiction novel.  I wanted to start working on a couple of books this year.  I have only hit the surface because the ideas that I have there is a lot of research involved.

Knowing myself as a writer has helped me improve my writing over the years.  I know what my strengths and weakness are and I am not afraid to ask for help.   Knowing yourself as a writer will greatly improve your writing.

Blessed be,

New Month Fresh Start

October 1st is here already, this year has flown by. I had planned on doing this Blogging Challenge as a fresh start. Many things have happened to me this year that has kept me away from blogging. I want to start over fresh and new.

I am having technical problems as I write this post. I am beginning to wonder if the Universe is trying to tell me that it's time for me to stop blogging.

I wanted to do many improvements to my blog before I started doing the Ultimate Blogging Challenge, this time around. I was not able to get many of them done. I will try to do them during the blogging challenge.

I hope to meet many new friends and old friends during this challenge. I hope everyone has fun and enjoys doing the Ultimate Blogging Challenge. I pray that I will be able to fix the problem with my computer so that I can update Writing Through Soul.

Blessed Be,

Lady Nightwave Brenda Marie

Big Changes for Writing Through the Soul

Big Changes for Writing Through the Soul

Big Changes for Writing Through the Soul are coming. 2017 has been a rough year for me, to say the least. I have not been doing much writing of any kind. But, there is much good news. I have been studying spiritual things once again. Thanks to a wonderful friend of mine, I have decided, to restart my spiritual business. I have plans for doing this at the beginning of 2018. I figure New Year, a fresh start.

Giving Writing Through the Soul a New Look

I will be giving Writing Through the Soul a whole New Look. I plan on going back through all the posts and articles here and giving them a much-needed update. Plus, there are errors that need to be fixed.

Not only do I plan to do this for Writing Through the Soul but also Lady Nightwave Brenda Marie's Reviews as well. I have learned better ways to write reviews and plan on updating there as well.

The Contented Dachshund is going to be turned around as well. I haven't decided, what I really want to do with it yet. I am either going to turn the Contented Dachshund blog into a private blog or I am going to turn it into a blog about adopting shelter and older dogs.

I also may or may not start a blog on WordPress. If I do start that blog it will be for my spiritual business.

I am back to looking forward to writing and this time I have a plan for my blogging. I know that I will do my best to stick to my plan. That means that you will be seeing a lot more from Lady Nightwave Brenda Marie.

I would like to thank all the bloggers, writers, and spiritual workers out there that have helped learn how to make my blogs better. Thank-you for reading and have a wonderful day.

Blessed Be!Lady Nightwave Brenda Marie
