Blogging Just Because

Every night after I put the kids in bed, I sit down at the computer and write myself a small to-do list for the night. This list is getting bigger as I add more things and as Stolen Moments Menu Planning grows. But one thing always remains the same - writing right here on A Simple Walk is always #1 on my list. I write here before I do anything else.

Some days the posts are short and concise and some days they're rambly and run on and on. Some days I have something specific in mind that I'll write about and other days I just wing it. And then some days, I can't come up with a thing to write about, but I do it anyhow.

I guess that's a habit that I picked up in my college creative writing classes. When you don't know what to write about, just write anyhow. So that's what I do.

Posts like this are the result.

I'm not willing to give up this little outlet as the start of my evenings though. With everything else I have going on, this little spot is fully ME and I can write about whatever I want. It's very therapeutic really.

And good for you! I've been a blogging delinquent after last week's hoopla with Little Miss "H". I've been a total sloth, trying to get my groove back after crashing on the weekend - lol

Maybe tomorrow I'll feel inspired again... but until then, I'll just hop on over to my friends who are inspired to blog ;-) Hugs

I like your little spot here. ; ) I like the variety and the bits of your fun family and personality that shine through. And I just keep coming back.

I'm right there with you girlfriend. But people probably think MOST of my posts are a result of not really having anything to write! LOL.
Hugs.

Thanks for continuing to write, even if it is just random thoughts. I have gotten a lot of joy out of stopping by your site to see what's up. So by all means keep your writing time, it's so worth it!

You go, Girl. I totally identify. My spot, my outlet, my time, my fun, my therapy. My blog. (That sounded much more narcassistic than I'd hoped, but you get the idea, eh?)

That's right.. you just write and we'll read.. even if it's just stuff. LOL.

I go through the same thing, but I guess I skipped that class in English. When I don't have anything to write.. I don't. Maybe I should start. LOL

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
