Daily writing as a way to organize thoughts

Posted on April 19, 2013. Filed under: Opinions, Staying-With-It, Writing-Exercises | Tags: |

If you write a short piece, or maybe a few short pieces, each day, you may find that the writing process helps you organize your thoughts.

Just as a task list in software such as Outlook or Astrid can help organize the day, practicing a daily writing exercise each morning, or evening, can help to consolidate thoughts that may be relatively unformed and diaphanous.

As so many others do, the morning writing exercise can be adapted in some ways, expanded in others, and focused in still yet others. Morning work on poetry focusing on meter and rhyme has the potential to improve prose. Vocabulary building can be an option. Identifying and eliminating the use of trite phrases can be another.

To some of you that read this blog, I am “preaching to the choir.” You already know this, and you already do this. But, if the idea is new to you, you should consider it.

I always love to read people who understand that this writing business takes dedication and practice! I know there is a choir out there, but actually it’s not so common to read such a positive post.

I see, on your blog, that you like “Writing Down the Bones.” So do I! (Thanks for stopping by!)
