I woke this morning with a huge sense of relief.
Bundled in my fluffy fleece robe,
I snuggled into a comfy chair in the great room,
watching snow sprinkle slowly from a pewter sky.
Relaxing, I sipped from a steaming mug of black tea.
For the first time since November 1,
I didn't have to think about writing a portion
of the 50,000-word commitment I made to NaNoWriMo.
Yesterday, I finished with two days to spare - 50,075 words!
(Can you see how I'm still padding my words here?)
My writing style on the blog is normally spare.
I use as few words as possible
to convey description and meaning.
The photos help tell my story.
It's good to get back to that style.
During the week of Thanksgiving,
when we were resting from skiing or sledding,
my 9 year old granddaughter saw me writing.
She decided to write her own story.
By the time she left for home, she had 410 words.
Her commitment is a favorite part of my experience.
Each of us has our own blog style.
I'm most comfortable with less is more.
I use a photo-journalism approach,
perhaps heavy on the photos to convey meaning.
However, I enjoy other blogs
using a more flowing, descriptive prose.
How would you describe your blog style?
