I write because it frees up my mind. I have been writing for quite some time but didn’t really want anyone to read it. I do spend lots of time talking on the phone, but writing is a better way to let you thoughts flow. I spend some lonely nights talking about the things that happen to me but when I write about it I get more words out. I have written on blogs about my experience as a homeless person, but it was the same as now. I realize now I could have made my blog more focused.
I have several blogs. I have a blog about an addiction. I used to have a blog about homelessness but I am no long homeless so I do know how to remedy that yet. I have a blog about my crazy adventures and a separate one for other people’s crazy things. I have this one that I had not decided what to do with it, but now I can use it for my classes. I probably should condense these blogs, but some are on separate sites.
My new tool I use to help me with my writing is this thing I use on my browser that is called Grammarly and it helps me with grammar. There is an email they send out (like newsletter) that gives me a breakdown of how many words I wrote, errors, and vocabulary. It gets me excited to write more the next week.
I want to become a real writer but and an English teacher told me if I don’t write I can’t become a writer, so I started blogging. I like the blogging because it seems so informal. I would love to write my own book someday. Experiencing issues can be troublesome but writing about it can be therapeutic. I found that if I share it with the world it can be inspiring. Now I just get my voice heard and people are welcome to visit.
