The wonderful craft of blogging

I just added a break before the last line of my last blog post. I did this nearly a day after I published it. I did it because I realised it needed it.

I read a lot about writing. Currently about writing memoir, or creative non-fiction. This relates closely to blogging as it is about extracting universal truths from sometimes mundane situations and writing them in such a way as to respect those involved and help those not.

I am also getting into poetry and reading about writing poetry. The power of concision, the importance of rhythm, the decision as to where to break lines. These too relate to blogging.

Do I want to be a poet? Do I want to write fiction? Do I even want to think of myself as a writer? No. I am a blogger - and I love it!
