The WEGOHEALTH Activist Writing Challenge Day 2
“Every great writer has their own process! What’s
the blogging process look like for you? Do you set
aside time each week to write or do you wait until
the inspiration hits? Do you finish a post in one
night or use the week to perfect it? Do you edit
your blogs or just hit publish? Whatever it is you
do, it’s unique to you and we want to learn about it.”
I’m definitely an inspirational writer. I get fired up about something or moved by someone and I just have to tell that story. I usually start writing in my head. If it sounds like something I want to say for more than a few minutes, I start writing. It just flows. Sometimes I get hung up and let it sit for a day, a week or even months. However, most of the time it’s a straight shot from start to finish.
Do I edit? Absolutely! I try to catch my mistakes before I hit publish, but there are times when I miss something and I have to go back and edit. I’ve had to edit older posts for content, or update with new information like a helpful link or photo.
I look at my blog posts as little pieces of my history that I want remembered or known right now. If I died tomorrow, people would be able to read them and see my journey and know that I really did try to do my best with the situation I was in. “Don’t ever give up. ” That’s my mantra. I hope that people see that and become inspired to carry on.

In 2010, I suffered a traumatic brain injury and other injuries when hit by an under insured driver. It changed my life. I now live with Dystonia, a rare and painful neurologal disorder that causes involuntary muscle spasms and abnormal posturing. There is no treatment or cure. The best one can do is treat the symptoms. You can learn more at DMRF.org.
