Writing Process Blog Tour


Dear blog-amie Gabrielle Bryden has tagged me in the Writing Process Blog Tour, which involves me answering the following questions and tagging a few other writing bloggers:

What am I working on?


How does my work differ from others of its genre?

It’s never accepted for publication.

Why do I write what I do?

I once read somewhere that Stephen King said something along the lines of that if he hadn’t become a writer, he would’ve become a small town sniper. My reasons aren’t quite as extreme (and, in case you hadn’t noticed, neither is my level of success), but writingβ€”poetry, in particularβ€”is a good outlet for stress and the things that fire my imagination.

How does my writing process work?

It’s a bit like vomiting, really – atrocious analogy, I know. But it is; it just happens of its own accord. One Saturday morning, I sat down with the intention of writing a non-fiction post about the notion that cheese before bed causes nightmares and within an hour, I had written this, something altogether different from what I’d intended.

Next on the Writing Process Blog Tour (tagged writers, feel free to ignore)

Thanks, Gabe πŸ˜€

  1. I love the way you relate writing to puking! lol – I hear you πŸ˜€

    Thank you so much for the nomination – I’m very flattered and trying not to puke under the pressure of it all πŸ˜‰

    BTW – Did you leave ‘what am I working on’ blank because you aren’t working on anything? lol – very nicely done πŸ˜€

  2. I know you aren’t that into Bob Dylan but you have one thing in common – he once described his writing of a song as like vomiting πŸ˜‰ thanks for joining in the tour bb πŸ˜€

    • Well, there we are – he’s a plagiariser, too! πŸ˜‰ Haha. Thanks for tagging me, Gabe – I had to have a little fun with it because I’m not doing much writing of consequence at the moment. I have a few drafts which I’ve left for a while, but when I go back to them, they still look pathetic, lol!

    • Yes, rather an alarming concept. He’s a very funny man in the mirth sense as well. Gabrielle Bryden’s review on his ‘On Writing’ encouraged me to read it and it is thoroughly entertaining. He had a strange upbringing. Thanks, Kate πŸ™‚

  3. BB, I’m participating in a similar blog tour, posting tomorrow. I was going to ask you to be one of the people I would recommend, but you had already posted this! I’m recommending you anyway. πŸ™‚

  5. Hi there, Bluebee! I saw this one recently on my phone – long time away from the computer – and was both surprised -didn’t get a pingback so didn’t realize earlier you had named me!! — and pleased that you had! Since I have a hard time following rules I may not answer every question, but you won’t mind. Writing as vomiting – well, not when the result is as good as yours. I do understand the “I can’t keep from doing this” angle. Love your challenges, my friend.
