737 – Writing

Normally, I try to do two pieces of writing every day, during the week at least. One in the morning on FaceBook and the other here. They might both cover similar topics, but I try to give my self a bit more free reign on the artistic licence (that really is a euphemism for experimental, possibly/probably rubbish prose).

This mornings facebook efforts never made it in to the app, and resides still in my notes diary. This is because as previously mentioned, my prose are dreadful. Stilted, limited vocabulary with no feeling to them, very dry writing. You tell me, which is better;

I got up and left the house, it was 18C and there was very little wind, but there were a few drops of rain.

Or this one;

The stillness of the morning engulfed me in its warm embrace, the darkness of the receding light yielding to the grey clouds.

Personally, I think I prefer the second version, but its still not perfect. I think it needs practice. I did wonder if I should go back to the creative writing course. The first time I went, I did tell the tutor that I didn’t want to write fiction, but in reality hers was a creative fiction writing course as that was what everybody was doing. I just fell in with it, and my efforts were, well… Rubbish, no bones about it, completely lacking in wonderful flowery prose, and an absolutely abysmal story telling capability. Where I have been looking at Vlogging tutorials, the one thing they say is don’t compare yourself with others. And that is correct, don’t compare. inevitably, yours will be of a different standards, and comparing yourself to someone who is well established will only lead to disillusionment and disheartening.

I want to avoid that. But I do need to do something.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.

One thought on “737 – Writing

  1. Yes, the second version is more descriptive. Both good though. Hope things are going okay? More time to concentrate on your best seller when you retire. ;~)
