You can tell when I'm editing because I always talk about editing related stuff. In a way, it's therapeutic since I'm getting out all the worries and concerns about my writing. It's also a way for me to analyze what I'm doing, get a hold of the whole (often messy) problem. And of course, some of you may get ideas from what I post here.
I would say blogging has definitely improved my writing style. Part of it is the whole writing every day thing (or at least, for every day, since a lot of these are written in advance), because nothing helps hone a craft like practice, practice practice! It might not be fiction, but it is coming up with ideas, typing them, rereading it to make sure it makes sense and isn't the rantings of a madwoman. I think I might miss that last part sometimes.
And I can't forget about all the blogging buddies I've met over the past few months. Whenever I have a question or feel discouraged, I post about it and sure enough, there are others going through the same thing or did in the past. Visiting other blogs is fun, but also informative. I get ideas about how to write, how to edit... all the things I need to push me along.
So that's it. Not a big post. I should be getting back to writing.
