The writing process & a personal style


Have you ever gone back and reread your material and thought, ‘did I write that?’ How does it make you feel?  Isn’t it weird? Often times after I’ve posted an entry, I never go back and reread it.  I figure, it’s best that I leave it alone, or I’ll edit it, over and over, and before I know it, I’ll end up with something totally different to what I had intended it to say.  Has this ever happened to you?

I went back and reread some of my entries on here, only because my stats say that they’ve had a few reads, and it got me curious about what it was that I actually wrote, and immediately after my reading the first sentence I wondered if it was me that had written this, because in my opinion, it read really well.  Did I really string those words together like that? Wow. Really?  Of course, I realise I’ve just impressed myself.  You? Maybe not so impressed?

I noticed that my writing appears to go through the same process.  I seem to start good (I think I do, anyway) and then I seem to lose momentum.  My writing seems to lose that oomph that it starts with.  I wonder why that is?  Maybe my thoughts wander into the oblivion of nothing and then they drift into a different realm, or maybe it’s natural to just  fizzle straight after?

What do you think? Your feedback on any of my entries is welcome.
