For today’s installment of Blogging Insights, I am going with the Q and A format.
TODAY’S QUESTIONS :
Do you write directly on a device? Are you old school, do you write on paper first?Do you re-draft? If so, how many times?
Do you write directly on a device? Are you old school, do you write on paper first?
When I launched my blog, my writing process was quite laborious. I would write each post in a notebook, and then type it out on my laptop in Microsoft Word. After this, I would paste the piece in WordPress before posting. Like I said before, it was laborious and time consuming.
As my familiarity with WordPress and my confidence grew, I started writing my posts directly on my laptop in the WordPress drafts. Once I learned to negotiate WordPress on my phone, I started writing directly on it. Waiting time before appointments, commute time, and even time in check out queues became writing opportunities on my phone.
Do you re-draft? If so, how many times?
In the beginning, when I wrote in a notebook and copied it onto my computer, that process was also an opportunity for editing and re-drafting. Later, writing directly on a device, I would edit and re-draft as required. These days, since I am very busy in my family life, I just do a quick check for typos.
What is your method? I would love to know.
You can drop me a line in my comments section. Better still , why not write a post of your own?
