a few readers have kindly mentioned that they have been missing my real voice. as if i've been shoved under the paperwork here on martawrites. perhaps you too have wondered where my brave and gutsy writing has gone. remember my write club workshop wherein i was full of inspiring ideas? where did that girl go? truth be told, the how-to series was my clever way of enjoying a bit of a summer break while still maintaining an active blog. merci, guest bloggers!
in september i plan to get back to my roots of creative writing. taking this blog back to school, back to the dear diary stories. i'll be celebrating four years of blogging afterall. (have i earned my pink caddilac with vanity plates yet?) i appreciate (and still can't believe) there is an audience reading my thoughts each day. no matter how big or small, an audience is a writer's dream come true. therefore, i'd love to have your input on what i should blog about. i need a jumping off point. i'm coming to you for a push in the right direction, to get me back into writing again. listed below are a few ideas rattling around. and as always, i'm open to new suggestions. let the voting begin. please do tell, what would you like to see here on martawrites?
my so-called life: memories from my growing years with a side of vintage 80s photographs.
dear diary: the recent and on-going goings-on of my every day musings.
lessons learned: wherein i tell you what high school, college, marriage and more has taught me.
research analyst: posts about all the cool crap i find online (yet rarely purchase in real life).
stream of consciousness: a random sampler of thoughts spilling freely.
tutorials, designs, printables & giveaways: more posts featuring freebies for you.
reviews & favorites: reviews about stuff i really use and really like.
workshop: another workshop full of daily prompts, classes & more. topic ideas?
p.s. speaking of writing from the heart, tune in tomorrow for a perfect how-to about writing courageously. i'll be taking notes.
