Blogging Insights – The Writing process!

I think this differs from person to person.

For me, I need to have a basic idea at the start of my writing and then my imagination takes over and I write the post in a flow. Sometimes this flow is sporadic. The ideas come in a rush and then stop. At times like these, I take a break from writing and do something else. When I come back to my piece, I find my inspiration again.

This is how I find the inspiration to write.

It is different for others. Some find that a methodical approach works better for them. They plan a post, jot down ideas and then write their piece. As wise people say that planning is the key to success, people who plan, have greater chances of success in creating a piece of writing that is up to their exacting standards and also will give them satisfaction.

I agree with the spirit of this quote. Unless we sit( recline, lie down) to write, with the pen poised to capture our thoughts ( or fingers ready to type on the keyboard), we cannot start the process of creating/ writing.

How do you go about creating your posts or stories and poems? Is the process extempore or do you plan it before you get to writing?


Tanya is the host of Blogging Insights. she said in her post;

Some bloggers have a blogging schedule and blogging strategy. They have their topics mapped out and write according to a carefully thought out plan. Others need a source of inspiration, some idea, or event that sets them typing away. Lois L’Amour, an author best known for his Western novels, believes otherwise as you can see in the quote below:

Start writing no matter what quote
“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned.” — Louis L’Amour

  1. Thanks for sharing, Sadje. Usually I get a concept, or more often even a line or two, and then I go from there. Sometimes though, I just start to type what comes to mind and then inspiration might well from there. Depends. One thing is for sure, when it comes, as you write, it is a flood of insights.

  2. It’s always something random with me. A lyric, a picture, or a taste. My latest book came from a news article about an ex footballer who is now a firefighter.

  3. I just write – it does not appear to be something that is really under conscious control. The thoughts don’t come until I am writing. If I were to rough out a plan, I probably would not stick to it. But now that I have a paying job writing, I sometimes do structure a piece beforehand. Still the essential writing and words I use come out innately.

  4. Great post. I find that actually setting the intention to write (e.g. not having the TV on, or not just simply typing bullet points for fun) does make way for the muse to arrive. So like you mentioned, actually sitting down with our pen poised really does help with inspiration. Anyway, thanks for this post!
