How does my writing process work?

There’s no process in my process, especially if I’m left to my own devices. Seriously.

As intense as HAWMC is it’s a lot easier for me in a sense since there are prompts for each day. I try to have a plan when I know I’m going to be posting more than usual. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes I make a plan and change it last minute.

I tend to go through “spurts” of blogging. I can write multiple posts at a time without any trouble and then I can go weeks looking for ideas or struggling to write one post. Let’s just say I thank whoever invented the ability to schedule posts on a regular basis.

I like when readers (or other people) have questions for me the most. They’re not always easy to answer as you would think, not because I don’t know the answer. It’s more of how to explain it. Sometimes my internal thought process is so automatic I don’t see how others may have questions. I like being able to break things down for people (and myself). Plus, answering questions usually gets me thinking more. More thinking means more posts. Win-win.

One of the best things about relaunching a blog (and pulling down another one) is the ability to not only look back on previous material but also edit it if it feels right.

Look ma, no process.
