This is how to write a blog post, according to me: First I start with stream of consciousness writing and see where that leads me, I ultimately make sure I have enough words, I edit my blog post several times, I come up with 2 or 3 links to other blog posts that have their own information, and then I try to find a picture that relates, usually a picture I have taken or one of my family after I get their permission.
Stream of Consciousness Writing
How do I describe what stream of consciousness writing is? Well, I just write stuff. Good or bad, right or wrong, I just put down my thoughts as I think them. Often the best writing is done as you think of stuff, and if not you will edit later. Write and write and write, if you think about flying a kite, write about flying a kite. If the weather is good and you wish you were outside, write about it. Get those flying thoughts down.
