On this mornings post on Facebook, it tried a bit harder to write something a little less prosaic than I normally do. For example instead of say the there were lovely colours in the morning sky, I wrote something along the lines of the sky brightened to the east, the muted grey on the horizon gradually rose to a glorious pint before turning to the brilliant azure blue. Just a little more descriptive.
My father-in-law paid me a compliment about my writing, and knowing his book related background, that meant a lot.
I need to practice that style of writing more often. I think a lot of the things I write about could be more interesting if only I put a bit more effort into it. I can honestly say that with over nine hundred blog posts behind me, writing more creatively should be easier, and perhaps posts between 1,000 and 2,000 I should really work on developing that skill. Did I really just write that? It seems I did.
It’s all very well writing, when it is just putting words on paper or on the screen. They really should mean something, and make you feel something. I quite think I would like to achieve that.
At the end of my Facebook posts I usually write something along the lines of “and whatever you are doing I wish you a lovely day” I like doing that. I would like to feel that message comes through in my writing, without me having to say it.
