Everyone writes differently and your writing defines the way that you perceive the world and surroundings. Writing comes naturally to some and the words just flow from their mind onto whatever they are using at that moment. She has a book about writing that she writes in the sides of the book the thoughts, and memories that she can remember.
She starts a journal every year but somehow life gets in the way and she has a few gaps that she needs to fill in, and she now will have to make something up that happened that day. That is the fun part of it all making up stories about what she thinks she did that day. She seems to recall a lot of information that she writes down in those empty spaces. Many people tell her that they could not write because they do not have an interesting life. However, every aspect of your life is interesting especially to the people that you are around and give some meaning to your life.
When you start writing you find yourself writing about a variety of things that you normally would not write about in your journal entry, blog, book or anything else. It is amazing when you go back and read the things that you have written. Some of it is funny and will laugh your head off. People do not take her seriously when she talks about her journal. If only they knew the things that she writes about in her life. Some people get defensive because they think that you are writing about them. They want to know so if you are writing in public they will look over your shoulder to see what you are writing about it is true. People have done this to her when she was writing during a lunch break at a previous job.
When you write you should not think about the things that you cannot control. Free writing is the best key to do and then pick a day to go revisit the things that you have written about in your journal, blog or book. Even after writing over 100,000 words each year you still have to go through the editing process and sometimes these things when you are finished minimizes the result of the word count because you find that many of the items that you have written about have nothing to do with the book, blog, or anything else that you are writing.
However, when you find the end of the trail you find that you are creating something personal and from your experiences. The thing that you will have at the end is the book that will become the best seller one of the days. Your life holds interesting parts and everyone should be able to express those feelings, memories, and anything else that makes their life whole.
Your family is the only one that cares about the outcome of their life. Many people write about their family life, work life, and they become best sellers. Some people like to write about reality, which is something that people seem to like in this world. You have to be creative in your writing coming up with stories that will intrigue your readers to coming back for more.
We all experience things at a different level in the world. You also can write about those beautiful meals that you have together as a family. Even with your family members you can concoct some stories that would probably be best sellers. Starting out with a short story, which is about 7500 words, would be beneficial to you to see if your material would be viewed by anyone. She has learned that some people will not like the things that you write about but you cannot let that bring you down.
Starting a blog would also be a publication because you are writing articles for your own blog and releasing it out into the world through the internet. How you perceive your life is your own thoughts and memories. She tries to think about the past and the memories that they had when she was a child but those memories are blocked by bad memories throughout her preteen and teenage life. She remembers certain parts of her life that she could not think of before but she knows that one day she will be able to remember those memories about her childhood.
Publication through the internet is one more thing that she can cross off her long list of things that she would like to achieve in her life and some of them are already a success. However, there are more things that she would like to accomplish in the world and she is working towards achieving those goals. She has already accomplished many things in her life. She is looking forward to achieving more throughout her life.
Your children provide you with numerous stories that they concoct to tell you about something they have watched on television. They also manage to tell you about the things that you have no idea about. They also learn and see more than you would want to them to know in this world. Children have some wild imaginations and speak what is on their mind whether it makes sense to them or not.
Journal entries from long ago throughout your family history date back to the early 1900’s and some of the information you cannot understand because of the writing that they did back then. However, some of the information in the journal entries can be read for the soul purpose of learning about your family history. It is truly amazing that you can find some of this information interesting enough to talk about and be happy about your heritage.
Life can be as interesting as you can make it and it all depends on the creative skills that you have in yourself to make the story come alive. You know it is amazing if you put one letter on each of the lines on a page that requires you to start a new sentence every time you come to the next line. She has done this and the story that she got out of doing this was truly disturbing but interesting to say the least.
You can even use the first name of each person in your family to develop a story the same way with each letter of their name all the way to the end of the page. Like Tammy would have one letter of her name on all 26 lines of the page. Therefore, you would have to start a new sentence for each of the letters of her name. It was an interesting exercise that she did just out of pure fun during a day off from work in the real world. It was fun and the children got a laugh out of some of the information that was in my story.
To many this would probably be a boring exercise and they would probably put it down.
Apparently, she enjoys this exercise because it makes her stop and think about the next letter.
Many people love to write, and work out exercises that will stimulate the brain to make a story.
Making time to experience exercises like this will allow you to conjure up some interesting stories or sentences.
Yes it is truly amazing at what you can write with a starting letter on the first line of the page.
Sometimes you just do not know what to write about and your mind comes to a blank because you have written about so many things that it is jumbled up in your mind. However, there are days that you write all day long and manage to accomplish things that you could not have dreamed of in your writing.
More to come!

I like to write but my writing is perceived automatically to be boring because of the Insurance aspect. I’ve learned to be smarter about titles!
The titles are what grabs the reader’s attention. I have learned that you have to insert a title that is catchy. I am sure that you will do well with your writing about insurance. Thanks for your reply…..
Your being nice, but u know the reality. Until someone else points out I’m not that bad, I will skipped over.
Thanks for the link back!
