I’ve been having bad episodes of writer’s block and I’m glad Noor tagged me in this post. I love writing and it helped me so much in every possible way. I don’t only write on this blog, I have another blog and I have a journal where I carry everywhere so this tag is really suited for me. Thanks Noor!
1. What am I working on?
I’m trying my best to show my personality through my blog. I want my post to be well written but at the same time, I want it to be fun and doesn’t sound too formal. Most of the time, I don’t plan what I write. I just go to my blog platform, put a photo and write anything that comes in my head like what I am doing right now. Sometimes I don’t even proofread it. So I guess that’s what I’m really trying to make use of: planning.
2. How does my work differ from others of its type/genre?
Every blog has its own identity to it because not all bloggers are the same. My blog doesn’t have a specific niche or theme. I just write what I want to write may it be about food, travel, fashion, beauty or anything about my life. What differs my work from everyone else’s is I guess sometimes I get too personal and I would just pour my heart out to what I’m feeling. Besides my blog, I write poems and proses as well which I sometimes post on my Tumblr so I think I’m more creative and in touch with my feelings in that sense.
3. Why do you write what you do?
I started blogging for one reason: self expression. I started when I was in college where I felt really lost in the real world. I couldn’t voice out my opinion to others cos I was shy or scared someone will judge me so I made a personal blog where I can just be myself. It helped me a lot and I’ve never stopped since. Sometimes readers would message me how I inspired them in some way and that keeps me going. There are things in my life that happened that I just want to share it in my blog hoping everyone could relate to it.
4. How does my writing process work?
I have that notebook on the photo where I write my blog post ideas, blurbs on my mind, poems, proses, my thoughts and some doodles. Sometimes it acts as a journal as well and after I write a draft in it, I polish it in another page or on my phone using the notepad so I can easily edit and delete some words. If it’s good enough, I can post it here or on my Tumblr but if it’s too personal, then it stays on my notebook. :p
