I did some more “diving and driving” through the blogosphere world and found more inspirational, hopeful, and helpful blogs in the areas of creative writing, poetry, and in gazing at the stars. I hope you enjoy exploring these links and find some inspiration from them as well:
Here’s a helpful blog for us bloggers who are also fiction writers. Every day, it publishes a one sentence prompt and you, the writer, respond by starting with at sentence and write a story. The point of these exercises is that as soon as you receive the one sentence prompt, you start writing! This is a very interesting and challenging way to practice and hone skills in fictional and other creative writing.
I found another blog site which addressed the process of writing, “Making Sandwiches” by Robert Jackson Bennet who is a fiction author and writer. He compares the writing process to that of making a sandwich. The main idea is that he is encouraging you to write what you want and to do it your way. We writers need to develop and follow our own creative writing style. Here is the link to his article:
I also came across a fun and very creative poem entitled, “Adventures in Poetry” which explores the challenges of poetry writing. It is very cleverly written and enjoyable to read. Furthermore, I also view poetry writing as an adventure. Each time I start a poem I usually have no idea how it will end. I am always very determined that my writing makes sense and makes a point but I am not always clear on what that point will be until I reach the ending. In that manner writing can be an unknown adventure. Here is the link to this very cleverly written poem by Eclectic Alli:
I enjoy gazing at the night sky and watching the stars. I also desire to learn more about them and to be able to identify celestial objects in the night sky. While thinking about that I came across this very interesting blog about the night sky. This blogger/photographer has mastered the skill to photograph and identify constellations, planets, and other interesting sights in the night time sky. His posts also are very timely; he often give insight on how you can discover what he sees in the dark sky. Take a look and enjoy:
