It's my blogoversary! Yep, can you believe it? My blog is ONE YEAR OLD! It seems like just the other day I started out on this blogging journey, and now a year has passed…
It has been an INCREDIBLE journey thus far, which has taken me to the furthermost corners of the globe where I've had the honour of meeting a whole bunch of wonderful people! Thank you to everyone who has stopped by to leave a comment.
I've written 196 posts to date which include:
~ 65 drabbles (100-word stories)
~ 25 short stories/flash fiction pieces ( in varying stages of completeness/incompleteness…)
~ 26 non-fiction posts for the 2011 A-Z Challenge
~ an assortment of mini blogfests/blog hops
~ other rambles/rants/raves
Bloggers/writers are on the constant lookout for sources of inspiration. The other day, I was pondering different ways to inspire creativity. How can we keep the mind stimulated… keep those creative juices flowing… This can be done by creating sensory experiences that will spark writing ideas. I have decided that, every week, I will try to inspire the creative mind by trying something new by exploration via the 5 senses – visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory and taste; as well as other word/writing prompts/challenges.
My blogging schedule will allow for a combination of part-schedule as well as spur-of-the-moment posts. It will go something like this:
~ Monday/Tuesday will be fiction posts (usually the drabble)
~ Wednesday will be Sensational Haiku/Whimsical Wednesday
~ Thursday/Friday will be the new exercises to inspire creativity
In addition to the above, there will be spontaneous posts which could pop up just about anywhere… This is not cast in stone and there may be minor adjustments from time to time…
Come April, there will be the A-Z Challenge posts throughout the month. Talking about the A-Z, you can hop over to the Blogging From A To Z April Challenge site, to check out my guest post, which is set to go live on 26th January at 5A.M. EST.
Thank you, once again, to the amazing online writing community! You guys rock! Enjoy the rest of your week. Don't forget to join me over at the A To Z Blog!
