What have you learned about yourself through blogging?
Blogging has given me self-confidence, a better ability to write, and a greater sense of the writing community. I have always known that I wanted to write, but blogging has helped me sift through different genres and different styles, until I found my own voice.
The generosity of other bloggers and writers never fails to amaze me. They offer advice and answer questions for those of us who are just starting, or are coming back to our writing.
I have learned that I have much to learn, in coming back to my own writing. The publishing process has changed, broadened, and widened over the past thirty years. There are so many choices to choose from and figuring out which way is best for which type of work is a constant process.
Overall, I’m very pleased with what I have learned during my fifteen months of blogging. I’m now close to being ready to publish my first book, which will be an anthology of short stories. Look for it soon; possibly around August 2014.
