When I think about the writing process, or any creative process, the first thing I think about is God. Why? Because God is highly creative. It is the first thing the bible reveals about God in Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Think about the creativity of God to come up with things like stars, the moon, all of the animals, and us human beings.
So for me the writing process begins with prayer and listening to worship music. Many writing ideas come to me during the time I spend with Jesus. Sometimes they are serious posts and sometimes they are humorous posts.
There is another aspect to my writing process that I don’t think I would wish on anyone. An idea comes to mind but it isn’t quite ready yet, so I put it on the back burner so to speak. When that happens, it often means I will wake up at some greatly unfortunate time like 2am or 3am and need to write. The idea wakes me up.
One blogging tip is to use the Preview button. It is next to the Publish button. I click on Preview and it helps me to see typos that I need to correct. First click Preview then Preview in New Tab and it brings up another tab that lets you see how the post would look if you published it. I find it to be helpful to catch those pesky little typos I missed.
What is your writing process?
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
