“Your intuition knows what to write, so get out of the way.” — Ray Bradbury
In my personal opinion, this quote applies more to writing stories and poetry etc rather than blogging. Blogging is a rare combination of all genres of writing that need to be blended carefully.
If I am writing for a prompt ( which I mostly do) it’s good to have a basic idea of what I’m writing about ( intuition) but it then needs planning and strategy on how to use the prompt image or word to its best advantage. Another concern that I especially have while writing is that most of my posts should convey a positive message. For this to happen, I have to use my conscious brain to bring out the positivity in my post.
In the end, I’d summarize by saying that blogging specifically needs both intuition and conscious planning. But that just be my approach to writing blog posts. Others may just be intuitively writing posts, stories, and poems. We all do have different ways of doing things in life.
Many thanks Dr Tanya for this thought provoking prompt.
