TODAY’S QUOTE from https://saltedcaramel670.wordpress.com/
Sometimes I think of blogging as finger exercises for a violinist; sometimes I think of it as mulching a garden. It is incredibly useful and helpful to my “real” writing. ~Kate Christensen
What is real writing? I think it is every time you write.
From what I can see a lot of writers, who blog, have quality content in their posts. From novels, split into chapters for easy reading, to short stories, poems, or just their thoughts. I have seen more quality writing here, than in some books I have read.
I have only been writing in my blog for a year, and when I struggle to write my novel, I am at least writing something. Sometimes, it will help steer my novel in a certain direction. The word prompts help too.
Any writing is a finger exercise for writers. We all know that our first draft, just like Hemmingway, will be rubbish. I think blogging is more than an exercise in writing. It is about reading great content and writing to an audience.
So, carry on Blogging, and maybe out of inspiration a novel will be born.
