#HAWMC: Peek Inside A Blogger’s Process
Today’s post continues the month-long series called the Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge (#HAWMC) created by WEGO Health. Writing with Style. What’s your writing style? Do words just flow from your mind to your fingertips? Do you like handwriting first? Do you plan your posts? Title first or last? Where do you write best?
Those who have followed enBloom for a while know that I post a number of different types of articles. Underlying most of these is the desire to inform and to call you to some sort of action that will prevent disease or preserve your health. Sometimes I take a tone that will simplify and explain, sometimes I take a tone that persuades. I certainly hope that my underlying passion comes through in the words and phrases more often than not. Generally, I’ll think about a general topic and conduct some research to guide what I write. In more and more of the articles I post, I reference my personal experiences. In doing so, I hope they will assist you in some way. It seems, I do my best writing on the couch in my den and I always write from my head to the keyboard. Occasionally, some very special posts just seem to flow through me requiring little editing but most often, they are the result of a plan, research, writing, and editing. Finally, I create a title after the piece is completed, so that it best reflects the topic of the blog post.
