MY LIFE Day 9
I have always loved writing and it comes naturally to me.
Many things do not, such as singing, drawing or math.
I thought I was going to be a journalist when I was a kid, I had a column in the local paper when I was 17, and was voted most likely to be a writer my Senior Year of High School. My actual handwriting is abysmal and I prefer to type or text if I can.
I preferred classes in college with paper finals versus a massive test at the end. After finishing my upcoming book, I now think of every communication in terms of word count. I have a mental word count monitor going on as I type this out (we are at 117).
When I was writing my book “Why Can’t I Stick To My Diet?” I fell back in love with the ritual of writing. I had stopped writing regularly sometime between completing my graduate school thesis and the first draft of my book. Sure, I wrote emails for work, journaled-sometimes and texted a ton but I had gotten out of the habit of creating stories, expressing my ideas creatively and figuring out the best way to express my ideas.
What comes naturally to you??
